    I dunno. Even the unmitigated disaster of Bush wasn't enough to wake them up. The more spectacularly their plan fails the more passionately they fight for it.

    Looks like the speech was effective, or else our resident rightwingers wouldn't be hyperventilating

    Untrue, I think that this country gives oil companies and multi trillion dollar corps tax breaks and substidies (sic). So a case can be made they live off the benefit of gov't more than you and I, all in the name of "they create jobs." Lets look at how this groups ship profits outside of the US, and move jobs outside of the US. Take those on welfare off who are lazy and can work, but those that paid for Social Security and Medicare, need be covered.

    corporations shouldn't pay taxes. INcome shouldn't be taxed-rather consumption should be taxed. and that would eliminate all those subsidies you complain about such as not taxing GE for profits they paid taxes on in the countries where the money was earned

    That's okay, honey. You didn't.

    Re: BREAKING: President Obama Addresses the Nation Tonight at 9

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Speaker John Boehner says President Barack Obama wants a blank check from Congress to raise the debt ceiling, but that he's not going to get one.

    Boehner says the solution to the debt crisis isn't complicated. He says if you spend more than you take in, you have to spend less.

    In his response to Obama's televised address to the nation, Boehner gave no indication of compromise.

    The House speaker did say the U.S. cannot default. He said the crisis would be over if the Senate approves a new House Republican plan to be voted on in the House this week, and if the president signs it.
    News from The Associated Press
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Boehner can't win for losing.

    Tea Party Coalition Rejects Boehner's Debt Proposal (UPDATE)

    UPDATE: 4:10 p.m. -- A coalition of Tea Party chapters and conservative lawmakers on Monday rejected the debt proposal put forward by Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), despite his efforts to sweeten the deal with provisions favored by his conservative base.

    The Cut, Cap, Balance Coalition, which boasts hundreds of Tea Party groups and more than 100 GOP lawmakers in its membership, is citing two provisions in Boehner's proposal that amount to deal-breakers: its call for creating a Congressional Commission and its inclusion of a balanced budget amendment that, according to the group, is only for show.

    "A symbolic vote on a balanced budget amendment at some later time minimizes its importance, as it will not be tied to an increase in the debt ceiling," reads a statement from the coalition. "A BBA that allows a tax increase with anything less than a 2/3 supermajority is not a serious measure."
    Hell, in his shoes? I'd be drinking heavily, too.

    I think the point was to remind us he's still officially president. Oh, and he wants to compromise.
