    You keep dancing from position to position. First the dance is "the POTUS is responsible for the results".......but when that fails the dance becomes "the legislature is responsible for the results".

    Stop dancing.

    Still waiting for any liberal/centrist here to give us the author of this quote and apply that quote to the actions today?The
    fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign ofleadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government can’t pay its ownbills. ... I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debtlimit.

    1. Well, other than the jobs bill, a tax increase on the highest earners, and the huge number of people he's nominated to the appeals court, we have the current debt ceiling issue, for starters.

    2. What on earth are you babbling about?

    I mean, they act like the private sector is the answer to all of our problems: The Private sector is not going to help you with anything; they are going to try and hire you at the lowest possible wage they can, giving you the least possible amount of benefits, so that they can make more money; look, the natural interests of the private sector contradict the interests of the middle class! Wake up folks, if the private sector is run by a minority, and the majority is dependent on them, then helping the private sector triumph against the middle class is the wrong thing to do!, which is exactly what the tea party is doing with the affordable care act: they are holding jobs and progress hostage to get their way!

    Really? You are going to use a quote from Obama as a senator (which lead to no defunding or default)......to justify the extremist minority of baggers stopping the US budget process.....and threatening a default?

    2. What on earth are you babbling about?
    What jobs' bill? How about the 15 sitting in Harry Reid's desk already passed by the House?

    Tax increase to the highest earners wasn't approved by his own party and how does that create jobs and positive economic activity

    Nominating people to the Appeal's Court has nothing to do with economic activity

    Debt ceiling issue? Who made the following statement?

    The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government can’t pay its own bills. ... I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.

    So that statement was made by Obama? Who would have thought that? What was the Debt to GDP ratio then vs. Now? You really don't understand the debt ceiling do you? How much of a spending bill and cut would it take to keep the ceiling the same as it is now and not default? What would we be defaulting on anyway and why?

    One more note on this comment, I previously showed that IF you want to argue from a fiscal/budget year standpoint, Bush shows a NEGATIVE non-farm job growth during his terms.
