    no, it was money we had decided to spend - the only money necessary to avoid default was the interest on the debt.

    You guys really need to get that through your head. Your representatives were not fighting to cut spending, they were fighting to refuse to pay for spending they already authorized just 2 months ago.
    that is incorrect. Republican leadership said from the get go that the debt ceiling would be raised; simply that it would be tied to spending cuts.


    however, if this is what you want to argue, then I would be interested in how you justify DEMOCRAT opposition to the debt-ceiling rise ; more Democrats voted against it than Republicans did, and the entire Democrat caucus in the Senate did so back in 2006.

    please cite for us the last time (for example) a sitting republican president called democrats the enemy of a certain ethnicity, and urged that ethnicity to "punish" them? with widespread republican approval?

    Democrats are the party more prone to violent language.

    Always singling out something that completely misses the point of the post. Allow me to quote the line that is more to the point:

    The problem is hyper partisanship.
    As he said, not democrats. Not republicans.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Remember this? Just more evidence she's anti-American. The question is communist or socialist?




    Remember when she apologized to Castro?

    Please, a 20 second clip, of someone struggling to find her language? Is that the best you got j. Is this what you call honest, intelligent discorse?

    No, it is not textbook definition. Look those words up and get back to me.

    Oh I am shocked, that libs would pull out a well used one from the playbook and claim the "out of context" pap....

    She said "socialize, er...um go in and take over..." Now she might have meant "Nationalize" however, that also is a tool of Socialists, and Marxists like Chavez.

    But you did ask me to look it up, so here it is...

    so·cial·ism   
    [soh-shuh-liz-uhm] Show IPA
    –noun
    1.
    a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

    Now, that is exactly what she was saying...The idea that it wasn't is what is dishonest here.

    Yes, I know j. You want permission to misrepresent. I'm sure there's a playbook somewhere for that kind of dishonesty.

    You have to actually control the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc. Saying we won't let your drill everywhere you want to is not doing that.

    This is about what she said, and you are now adding on to her own words to excuse her slip that showed who she really is. In short you are twisting now Joe, and I don't want you to hurt yourself in your contortions.
