    Poll: 71% shun GOP handling of debt crisis

    When will the GOP/Tea Party wise up?

    Americans are unimpressed with their political leaders' handling of the debt ceiling crisis, with a new CBS News poll showing a majority disapprove of all the involved parties' conduct, but Republicans in Congress fare the worst, with just 21 percent backing their resistance to raising taxes.

    Very interesting. The American public seems to have spoken.

    There no reason why budget negotiations should be tied to raising of the debt limit. It was done 7 times during Bush's presidency and the debt doubled. Let the Bush tax cuts expire - all of them - and that will go a long way to curing our debt problem.

    To you, compromise means, do it your way. Your way or the highway.

    Obama: raise the debt ceiling or no deal. Don't call my bluff.


    That's "compromise"? Please the irony of your claim is too much.

    When have the Democrats ever refused to raised the debt ceiling?

    Democrats would never miss an opportunity to spend this nation into bankruptcy....


    What this has to do with any point, escapes me however.
