    Deuce, Sangha - You are both right. When the debt ceiling was raised under Bush, there were some Democrats who pissed and moaned about it. However, the party as a whole voted overwhelmingly in support of it. Obama was one of those who pissed and moaned, but I never liked him anyways. LOL. On the other hand, the GOP is threatening to slice the throat of America if they don't get their way, and this appears to be the party as a whole, and that is the difference.

    Re: McConnell Offers 'Backup' US Debt Limit Plan

    aaagghhh im so confused!!! BDBOOP...yes agree with that totally. It was very different...the tone...the talk....everything. The democrats didnt use the scare tactics and the "screw the little people" mentality that republicans are using right now. But a lot were against it and said so...(cannot post link, because i watched it on tape..interviews and such on some show I watched the other night) Republicans are totally being irresponsible right now and we are going to possibly pay the price.

    True, but the reasons both Obama and Reid gave were not that they were opposed to any raising of the debt. Therefore, there is nothing hypocritical about their opposing one raising of the debt ceiling, while supporting another. Additionally, Obama admits that his opposition was a mistake. I don't recall any sitting republicans saying their support for raising the debt ceiling was a mistake

    Re: McConnell Offers 'Backup' US Debt Limit Plan

    When reminded that the Senate vote to raise the debt ceiling was a close 52-48, with Mr. Obama voting no, Mr. Gibbs said, “Well, we’ve had closer.” The vote was completely along party lines, with Republicans all voting yes and Democrats voting no.
    but hey, obama knew his vote wasn't needed

    LOL!

    the junior senator from illinois on the expensive blue carpet, march, 2006:

    “Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that `the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
