    Your point? Bush lies caused over 4000 American lives, not to mention thousands of innocent Iraquis.

    I'll lt you tell us what the Bush lies were.
    Huh?

    Boehner has just told the press that the President reneged on an agreement for tax revenues. They had agreed on cutting the # of tax brackets and lowering the rates for the brackets and doing away with at least some deductions. Then yesterday, President Obama began to seek over $400 billion in new taxes. The lies continue.
    Obama did not renege. The President had wanted more revenues from the getgo - it's right there in his Budget proposal. He wanted 3T to begin with. He upped the ante on Boehner (on the figure they were discussing) because he found out that the "the gang of six" which includes 3 Republicans, was willing to vote on the higher figure. Obama should have realized that Boeher (Republican and controlled by the Tea Party) will rather the country go into default than to tax his cronies. Tsk, tsk.

    It isn't even a proper sentence - "I'll lt you tell us what the Bush lies were."

    "I'll it" - yep that's very clear.

    Yeah,from what Boehner was asking, but not from what Obama had originally asked for. Why should Obama agree on Boehner's amount, when Boehner is not concerned about what the majority of Americans want.

    No, Democrats didn't lie. That's just a line blurted out by ignorant people who don't understand the difference between the Debt Held by the Public and the Total Public Debt Outstanding.

    LOL! You know what news I watch? LOL!

    Unlike some people, I am not a perfect typist. I inadvertently left out the letter "e" in the word, "let." I take it you are a perfect typist. Cool! Don't worry, if you follow my postings, I am sure you will find plenty of reasons to be snarky over my typing. If that makes you feel like a big person, that's fine by me.

    I believe that both Obama nd Boehner had been negortiating the figure of $800 billion in tax revenues. Then, per Boehner, the President demanded another $400 billion. He reneged on the agreement.

    I am not going to post yet again the lies. If you don't believe them, that is your problem.

    The GOP's goal is to increase the debt ceiling, in spite of its rhetoric, because if it did not, it could not pay for its ongoing military and foreign aid/terrorism sponsorship ejaculations (which amount to billions of dollars per year in wasteful spending), unless it advocated raising taxes on the middle class, which would make conservatives sour on the GOP.

    That's what would happen if the debt ceiling were frozen--the GOP would become the Party of High Taxes, while the Dems would play the opposite role--advocating low taxes for the middle class, paid for by corporations and PACs who ordered their boners and mcconells to increase the US debt on their behalf to get rich.

    The GOP cannot survive without debt.

    The Tea Party is certainly making an example of the GOP...but not in a good way. I love watching the political damage that the teabaggers are inflicting on the GOP every day. They are getting killed in the arena of public opinion and its fun watching the masacre.

    Sadly, the Republican party is the worst thing that could happen to the Tea Party.
    I may be wrong.
