Quote of the Day

"Like a drunk swearing off hooch for the hundredth time, Republicans are now trying to show they are serious about controlling the deficit by saying they won't raise the debt ceiling...
Raising the debt ceiling isn't, as the GOP tries to say, Congress giving itself permission to continue excessive spending: It's something that's necessary to pay for past congressional decisions on taxes and spending, and those decisions were made primarily when Republicans were in charge."
~Retired Republican Congressional Staffer Mike Lofgren

Obama should grow a spine and call their bluff.Use the bully pulpit and dare them to vote to send the country into an absolute depression
Unfortunately I've been hearing he's gonna cave and will take the Bush tax cuts off the table.Unfortunately, the last time the republicans held the unemployment payments as hostage and Obama caved explaining they were goin to kill the hostage so he gave them what they wanted-the Bush tax cuts for the rich which by the way should now be called the Obama tax cuts for the rich.
So now that the republicans know he can be rolled,they will now hold the nation hostage because they know he will blink again.
