    You must have imagined that I said it was not based on politics because I said the exact opposite.

    Look all that is important.....is that we realize its only wrong if anyone without a (D) after their name does it.

    When Obama objected to raising the debt limit......that was all good in the hood.........

    Once again, you have to resort to things that no one has said. Even Obama agrees that it was a mistake for him to oppose it

    n March 16, 006, then Illinois Senator Obama was opposed to hiking the ceiling, noting:*“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. 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.

    Reid said:
    “If my Republican friends believe that increasing our debt by almost $800 billion today and more than $3 trillion over the last five years is the right thing to do, they should be upfront about it. They should explain why they think more debt is good for the economy.
