    I'm with you! Those with big money stand to lose the most if we default, or even get our credit rating lowered. They will not allow their lackeys to do that.

    The debt limit will be raised, so don't sweat it peoples!

    look, i'm not going to sit here and argue that Bush was anything but a big spender, or any kind of a fiscal hawk. but Obama's spending hikes are his own.

    Now, you're just posting fiction. There is no "porkulus bill" and UI benefits have not been extended endlessly
    eh, hyperbole. the Stimulus Bill spending turned out to be mostly aid to politically important democratic states and localities - that's what you call "pork spending". and UI benefits have indeed been extended again, and again, and again. 99 weeks on top of the States coverage. You can live for two years for free on others' dime.

    And even if they were, that doesn't undue all the wasteful spending passed by republicans and signed by bush*
    agreed. you should see the (lengthy, angry) letters I sent back to the RNC when they dared to ask me for contributions in 2008.

    Both bush* and Obama (and both parties) are responsible for Education Deform. That still doesn't undue all the wasteful spending passed by republicans and signed by bush*
    which remains less than that which was passed and signed by Obama. Spending grew under Bush and accelerated under Obama. If one man walks up and shoots you in the knee, and another walks up and shoots you in the face - you can't exactly blame your death on the first man.

    Excuse me, but that debunked years ago. It was a projected surplus, and not real.

    The stimulus was not 4.5T which the rightiies keep repeating. And a good deal of it was tax credits, not spending. Trying to blame the entire increase in spending on the stimulus and the extension of UI is ludicrous

    the 24% increase in domestic spending under Obama wasn't passed under Bush. the trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see that are part of Obama's budget proposal were never part of Bush.
    Most of it was passed under bush* or was required by legislation passed under bush*. For example, Obama has to service all the debt accumulated under reagan, ghwb and bush*. It's the law.

    look, i'm not going to sit here and argue that Bush was anything but a big spender, or any kind of a fiscal hawk. but Obama's spending hikes are his own.
    And you'll never explain why Obamas' having to service debt created under reagan, ghwb and bush* is Obamas fault, because you can't

    eh, hyperbole. the Stimulus Bill spending turned out to be mostly aid to politically important democratic states and localities - that's what you call "pork spending". and UI benefits have indeed been extended again, and again, and again. 99 weeks on top of the States coverage. You can live for two years for free on others' dime.
    The stimulus bill is Obamas responsibility, but that does not account for the entire increase in spending. It was just one small piece of the increase. And plenty of repubicans voted to extend UI benefits. They share in that too.


    agreed. you should see the (lengthy, angry) letters I sent back to the RNC when they dared to ask me for contributions in 2008
    .

    Good for you. I have never said that the entire increase in spending is all on bush*. However, the facts clearly show that they are also not entirely on Obama either. In some cases, both parties are to blame. In others Obama. And in others, bush*

    which remains less than that which was passed and signed by Obama. Spending grew under Bush and accelerated under Obama. If one man walks up and shoots you in the knee, and another walks up and shoots you in the face - you can't exactly blame your death on the first man.
    Again, the fact that Obama has increased funding for that doesn't mean that bush* is absolved of responsibility for the spending on education that passed under bush*

    Re: Obama, Boehner at war over debt talk collapse

    THAT's the plan?

    LOL!

    why, you couldn't even get that INTRODUCED in committee

    no, pros (like kent conrad) know the president's plan---

    boil 2 cups of water, open package of jello brand gelatin mix and stir in contents, boil for a minute, cool...

    makes 4 servings, one for each of the caucus leaders

    party on, progressives

    embarrassed yet?
