    Of course this latest 'crisis' would be good for the GOP, or any other political party which might behave as adults.

    What people don't seem to be asking themselves is "What is best for America?"

    What's your definition of adult behavior? I ask because I think it would take a very skewed definition to see any adults here.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    a person could go on for hours on that one, huh?

    a real short answer: andrew cuomo

    the ny gub has certainly demonstrated that rare kind of leadership america certainly craves these days

    i am aware of others who do a great deal of thinking who prefer misters bing and bobb in detroit and the choices they are making

    good question, i hope you get some uplifting answers

    Liberals are consistently uncertain about adult behavior, Boo, which is why they have to ask this question.

    One of the first responsibilities of an adult, under the parameters of this discussion anyway, is to live within your means. This is something that was taught to all children in order that they could behave responsibly when they grew up. I guess many of the last generation, or those families where no father was present (as in the case of you-know-who) never really taught or learned this lesson.

    It is also adult to pay your bills, even when you run them up irresponsibly. This is the definition of taking responsibility for your actions.

    I'm sorry, but I think you're a little selective as to where you apply your definition.

    I like this article. It is full of great advice for the soft and squishy part of the Republican party. This is a great fight to be in. We need to take advantage of it to wrest power from the one term Marxist president Nobama. If we win the nation wins. If the Marxist wins the nation fails.

    The bills cannot be paid. More money is being borrowed in order to try and make payments on the interest on the debts owing. In fact the government is borrowing from itself. It is now being suggested that, despite this irrational and continuous foolish spending, the public, or at least the more responsible members of the public, finance it.

    This has gone past being irresponsible and is now on the edge of insanity.

    That about sums it up.

    But even if the American people do vote in a responsible government in the next election, and I have confidence that they will, it will mean a truly difficult time for whoever the leadership might be. They will have to make the hard decisions, in the face of the media and the irresponsible leftists, to make the country right again.

    Right now I don't see anyone specific emerging but the American people have always seemed to get lucky at the right time in the past, and I hope like hell they can do the same again.

    tell it to dave bing and robert bobb in detroit

    they're unilaterally shredding contracts, outlawing collective bargaining via michigan martial law, demanding new agreements, firing those who don't cooperate, pink slipping entire school districts...

    Even if you borrow to pay, you're still honoring your obligation. That said, cut spending and increase taxes (revenue) is the adult response. I don't see anyone doing this.
