    Obama not getting his way???? he isn't even close to getting even a concession, let along his way.... the only deals on the table are 80-90% of what the "Tea Party" (another group of questionable persons) have been seeking. Its time to pay attention.
    Catch me if you can.

    Everybody who has made a list has included active duty military on the people they would pay. I think almost every list has included veterans. But to blame Obama because he can't pay everybody if the Republicans intentionally torpedo the country is just silly. They're the ones that are threatening to default, not Obama. This has been an entirely politician created threat to our economy. The Republicans invented it to use as a threat if they didn't get their way... And you blame Obama for that?

    This is the way I see it.. if Obama can't run this country because of his ineptness then QUIT! All these people who still defend them are in cloud nine. I believe that Biden can even do a better job than Obama even tough everybody thinks that he is a clown.
    Catch me if you can.

    I would be shocked if he did. That would require stepping up to the plate, taking responsibility, and facing the music. He's more likely to hand the bill to Senator Reid and say, "Here, veto this." I'm aware he can't do that but he isn't.

    What are you talking about? Can't run the country? He's doing fine. It is the Republicans that are threatening to intentionally destroy it after all, right?

    Republicans are trying to FIX all this mess Obama got us into. Republicans finally had to pass a bill to REDUCE the deficit and that's something that the democrats didn't do for 2 solid years, which proves that the democrats are not responsible enough to keep this country's budget in order. This country should give Calif. back to the Mexicans so we can get rid of another irresponsible and broken state, this way we can get rid of Pelosi and all the democrats running this nanny state. THIS COUNTRY HAS NO MONEY and neither California. SPEND, SPEND , SPEND....not a good way to run a country that has to borrow what it spends.

    It's best to crash the economy now. Crash it. Bring Obama to the hilt of the social conflagration he's planned for, all along. Let's stop delaying the inevitable, and get on with it. May the world witness the diabolism of Obama, in all its bloody wickedness.

    You are, yes, because you're a Communist. OF COURSE you like Obama. I'm an anti-Communist, so I oppose him.

    No offense, but you seem to completely misunderstand what is going on. About 2 months ago Congress passed their budget. Now the Republicans are refusing to pay for the stuff they spent 2 months ago. THat has nothing to do with Obama, it is Congress attacking itself. But, we could definitely cover Congress's spending. The national debt is only about 70% as high as a percentage of GDP as it's historical peak during WWII. It's higher than it should be, but not off the charts or something. We definitely can pay it down without defaulting on our commitments. There was no crisis or anything. Historically Congress has always just automatically agreed to pay for what it spent. But the Republicans figured out that by threatening to refuse to pay for what they spent, and destroy the economy in the process, they could make demands. Turns out they were right- the Democrats would rather capitulate on the budget issues than see the country destroyed. But hopefully voters will be smarter than to re-elect people who were willing to hold the economy of the country hostage like that. Just to be clear- I also think Congress needed to work on the deficit, but they should have done it properly by passing a budget with less spending and by raising revenues, not by threatening to blow everything up. And certainly the Republican insistence that it all needs to come out of the pockets of the middle class, and nothing out of the military or the rich, is morally abhorent to me.
