    He is right. He is also a large part of the problem.

    As far as I can see from that debacle he is the problem....Boehner (sp) and he had a deal that included revenue (closing loopholes, and possibly raising taxes) and Obama blew it up by coming in the next day and demanding more.

    You know, Dave Ramsey summed it up pretty well in an article he penned on his website....If the national debt were a household it would go something like this....

    The federal government will take in $2.173 trillion in 2011. That’s their income, and it sounds pretty good. Until, that is, you factor in that the federal government will spend $3.818 trillion during the year. So, just like many families, the government’s outgo exceeds their income—to the tune of $1.645 trillion in overspending. That’s called the deficit. Altogether, the government has $14.2 trillion in debt.

    What would happen if John Q. Public and his wife called my show with these kinds of numbers? Here’s how their financial situation would stack up:

    If their household income was $55,000 per year, they’d actually be spending $96,500—$41,500 more than they made! That means they’re spending 175% of their annual income! So, in 2011 they’d add $41,500 of debt to their current credit card debt of $366,000!

    What’s the first step to get out of debt? Stop overspending! But that means a family that is used to spending $96,500 a year has to learn how to live on $55,000. That’s a tough pill to swallow. Those kinds of spending cuts seriously hurt, but it’s the only way out of debt for John Q. Public.

    I, and I think America is getting fed up with this crap these politicians are shoving at us concerning some great deal they all made when it really is like getting publishers clearing house junk mail...The envelope says "CONGATULATIONS!!!!!You're our next Millionaire!" Then you open it up to find you've won NOTHING!

    Most people agree with him. The poolitical system is messed up. You'd understand if you could see past that irrational fear of everything Obama.

    By "Most people" you mean whom?

    Last I saw Obama's disapproval ratings were in the 50s...That would mean that "Most people" disagree with him....Even this article says that only 19% agree with demo handling of this situation....Most people? Yeah right....

    That has nothing to do with whether people agree with him that the political system is broken. Reading is your friend...

    By most people I am referring to all the polls saying that most people think the political system is messed up. It's not a hard concept.

    It's like teaching kindergarteners in here, lol.

    the GOP was unwilling to compromise at all when it came to tax-increases or simply closing tax-loopholes. as far as they were concerned the solution to the debt would be cutting spending ONLY.

    this is not compromise.
