    Re: Obama: Congress must — and will — raise debt limit

    a week after tsunami tuesday bernanke announced his lates round of qe, this one on the order of half a T

    it raises the level of public trust obligated in mostly mortgage backed junk to two point seven trillion dollars, the massive stake largely UNDIVERSIFIED

    the same week the slasher went to seoul for his g20, trying to effect cooperation vs china's crass manipulation of its currency

    who are you to talk to us about solvency, was the international reaction

    the ny times reported, "obama's economic views rejected on world stage"

    the national journal called seoul, "america's rodney dangerfield moment"

    Obama's economic view is rejected on world stage - Boston.com

    NationalJournal.com - America's Rodney Dangerfield Moment - Friday, November 12, 2010

    credibility, anyone?

    leadership?

    They're doing it knowing full well that it'll never survive the Senate or the President. In other words, they're doing exactly what the Democrats who voted with Obama against raising the debt limit were doing -- casting a vote with no meaningful impact strictly for the sake of political posturing.

    In other words, they're passing the hot potato back and forth.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    nonsense, boehner's broads and boys are doing everything within their power, controlling as they do one house of legislature

    as for posturing, they're awfully convincing, having put the budget chair's plan in writing and passing it, 235 to 193

    it's right there for anyone with an ax to hack at

    poke its naked ribs with the lance of demonization and demagoguery

    where's the slasher, meantime?

    STILL making excellent and great speeches?

    a hundred bil, thereabouts, every two weeks...

    tick tock...

    Riiiiiiiiiight. Just like it wanted to keep control of spending when it had a firm grip on the first and second estates?

    No, what they're doing is making a lot of noise and passing bills that they know will never become law. That's posturing.

    This is almost comical considering his vote against raising the debt limit in 2006.

    What has changed since then? If the debt limit hadn’t been raised in 2006 would the ramifications be any different than today? Why didn’t we hear the gloom and doom predictions of a global economic meltdown in 2006 that we hear today?

    In 2006 there wasn't a single democrat who voted for raising the debt limit, unless you count Arlen Spector as a democrat. GovTrack: Senate Vote On Passage: H. J. Res. 47 [109th]: Debt Limit Increase resolution Today they are all preaching to us about how irresponsible it would be to vote against a debt limit increase.

    I don’t get it. Can one of you democrats fill me in on the logic here?
    Obama wasn't in charge then, he is now.
