    ?? um no. Obama is a Liar. Obama knows what he is talking about and it is not the truth. Obama claims that the dept is going down. Statistical LIE. He is comparing the sequester numbers to his pay out stimulus numbers. So when you do that of course the numbers are going down. But in the real world our debt is rising faster then under any president in history. Raising a ceiling will only keep that illusion that the phony money pumped into the stock market is doing good. The longer we do that the bigger the pop.
    Obama only wants the debt limit rise so he can play a shell game with the USA economy. Sad part is he knows it is very bad. But Like Sal Alinsky teaches, blame the other guy and Lie lie lie.

    But Obama will talk with his friends in the Muslim brotherhood and believe their lies.

    It would be… educational… to be able to sit down with folks at a coffee house and see where they get their information and to see how they react to where I get my information. Even the premises they present to why the President is taking the actions taken, or not taken, is confusing to me. How does it benefit Mr. Obama to “destroy” the USA? Is he an armageddonist who wants to destroy the world as we know it to bring on the second coming? Does he care so little for his children and his legacy that he wants to have us dominated by another world power? If he wanted either of these things, couldn’t he do it more simply by taking the information at his disposal and giving it to other world powers? Why be angry at Snowden if Snowden is doing what Obama wants in weakening us militarily? Why be upset with Congress if congress is weakening us financially and in the world? The accusations leveled at this man lack motive. And, based on a great deal of information I’ve been reading, the actions of those who oppose him lack reason. When I hear these opponents speaking, it makes even less sense.
    Instead of telling us he’s trying to destroy the country, tell us why he would want to, and provide some OBJECTIVE sources. Otherwise, please quit throwing gasoline on a fire that is consuming to many of our neighbors in this country.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    .
    “dept”
    .
    - Anyway, someone here can’t tell the difference between debt and deficit.
    .
    - BTW, the US deficit is indeed going down.

    Hmmmm. “Harleyqueen?” Would you say that to his face? I doubt it. You call people terrorists and cowards because they disagree with you. Of course you can do this behind the safety and security of an anonymous login. How brave of you. Following the many responses to the tenor of your posts, it’s obvious your poisonous rants are really not appreciated by either side of this debate.


    I suppose its pointless to waste time suggesting alternatives to you, but here’s a poster that’s a direct opposite to you in the manner in which he writes, the logic of his content and the civility he employs in the discussion: read the posts of the Respectful Troll. People on all sides of the political spectrum respect his opinion and even when they disagree they respond civilly and usually strive to respond logically, not emotionally. I believe the operative word is CIVIL. It’s a good example that in this contentious environment people can strive for balance and compromise while maintaining a respectful tone.

    Obama doesn’t claim the debt is going down. He claims the deficit is going down, which it is. It has nothing to do with comparing this or that number, but the fact that the deficit is the annual shortfall between spending and income, while the debt is the total amount owed by the government.

    The deficit is shrinking, and doing so faster than under any President since WWII. Dollar for dollar the debt is rising faster than ever, but not as a percentage of GDP which is what matters.

    @echoraven

    Oh, goodness. Read and repeat as necessary:

    1) The majority of the US House wants a clean continuing resolution; and 2) The majority of the US Senate wants a clean continuing resolution; and 3) the President of the United States wants a clean continuing resolution.

    The only thing stopping the resumption of the government is that Boehner won’t put it up for a vote. Were he to do so the kids would get their treatment, vets could go to the memorials, and the National Guard would be able to protect us from disaster.

    All it would take is one bill on the floor, but Boehner won’t do it.
