    Boehner’s ability to deal with the Tea Party and his ability to catch a flying elephant and just about equal. Speaker of the house is the second hardest job in DC, and that’s when you are dealing with rational human beings. Dealing with the Tea Party and their conservative media bubble induced delusions makes it simply impossible.

    “Sticker Shock: National Debt to Rise to $18.2 Trillion”
    By the date of the just-passed legislation, these Debt “geniuses” will have put the American citizens $1 Trillion deeper into the budgeted Debt.
    -
    The so-called “Debt Limit” never once has “limited” national debt. The Liberals in the Democratic Party and in the MSM have propagated a MYTH that if the date passes and spending continues the US government goes into “default”…
    NOT. And the artificial Bubble of non-stop spending and rising debt plus the last 5-1/2 years of printing Monopoly money that only infuses the Stock Market with phony “gains” will burst and make 1929’s Depression look like “good times”

    Even though it was for the party and not for America, kudos for rejecting teabagger madness this time around. Still the WORST. SPEAKER. EVER.

    Well, blame Bush for screwing up the progress made towards a balanced budget under Clinton.

    Is there no limit to the excuses you make for Obama? He’s well headed into having the longest recession in the US.

    I’ll bet you point at the dog after farting, too.

    The recession was something that began under the administration preceding Obama’s. So, now the opposition criticizes Obama for not fixing it, while doing everything they can to prevent him from fixing it. It beggars the imagination.

    Want to fix the nation’s debts? Cut spending, not just programs for the poor and the middle classes. Raise revenues, by taxing those who have made out so very well during the last 30 years.

    Give tax breaks only to job creators who actually create jobs in America. Reward their patriotism, the patriotism that chooses smaller profits in the name of making America’s economy (and therefore America) stronger. The economy would take off, and the debt would melt away if spending is kept in line. (Which I believe is a challenge for both parties.)

    I will totally believe anything that comes from a guy who starts his post like you did. NOT!

    I like that little circle back on the skate-line and the “bloody nose blotch” on the wall from the last time they played with the debt ceiling. What was it that some great philosopher said: “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice… ehm,..err,.., you can’t get fooled again, you know” (George W. Bush)

    @motivemagus….the “Clinton trend to balancing the budget” was forced on him by the GOP in congress.
    -
    GW had a 2001 Terrorist War to fund. Or would you prefer ignoring 9/11/01….?
    -
    @piobaire….the 2008 recession was officially declared ended in June 2009. The economic data shows America was better under Bush than under Obama….Jobs, wages, number of workers in the labor force able to find and hold jobs…the federal DEBT has skyrocketed with no end to $trillion deficits in sight.
    -
    @Morty-Tyrant…..I am an elderly great-grandmother, not a “guy”…..Did you read the Breitbart news article? It uses government numbers and estimates! (the Democrat Prez and Senate government)!

    So let me get this straight.

    Libs posting on this site enthusiastically voted for a guy who said:

    The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic. ~ Then Senator Obama during the 2008 debate as well as numerous campaign speeches

    and

    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government can’t pay its own bills. … I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.” ~ Then Senator Obama, floor speech in the Senate, March 16, 2006

    and NOW complain that any opposition to increasing the debt limit is irresponsible?

    How do you libs reconcile this?

    @churchillwasright

    So what is it about “libs” that you find objectionable, here?.
    .
    First, do you dispute the fact that the Bush Admin ran up the debt?
    .
    If you are looking at the relatively minor gesture that Obama voted to oppose the raising of the debt ceiling as being rank hypocrisy, let me point out that his opposition vote was symbolic, because there was no danger of the measure failing.
    .
    However, in the T-Republican party of late, they want to crash the economy, and have repeatedly tried to shut down the government as a means to that end.

    @Zuhlamon

    How do you libs reconcile this?

    ZUHLAMON: “By being a partisan hack”.

    Thanks for the explanation.
