    The rightwingers just are not intelligent enough to realize that this could be done. Instead, they kept agreeing to pass tax increases in return for a promise of future spending cuts. And now they want to blame their ineptitude on others. And the boobs think this qualifies them to run the economy :crazy:

    Why would we need tax increases if we are cutting our spending? Why not just cut?
    It never happens because the republican boobs don't really want to cut spending.

    And funniest of all is that their current proposal doesnt cut one dime of spending; it merely promises that congress will cut spending in the future

    More voters would blame Republicans than Obama in absence of debt limit deal, says poll

    "If Congress is unable to come to a deal to increase America's debt ceiling, more Americans will blame Republicans than will blame President Obama, says a new poll by Quinnipiac University.

    According to the survey, released on Thursday, 48 percent of Americans say they will blame Republicans, not President Obama, if the country's $14.3 debt limit is not raised. Thirty-four percent said they would blame Mr. Obama rather than the GOP"

    I think once people realize just how nice it is to have a couple of hundred thousand less busybodies bullying them this idea of reducing the size of the federal government is going to get really popular with the people who make the country work. Liberals, on the other hand are just not going to know what to do.

    Why dont I see such histrionics and blame-gamin over on the thread where the Senate didnt even open debate on CCB? They voted, but not to open debate on the bill. They didnt talk about it, they didnt examine it--they tabled it. Now, whose fault do you suppose that is?
