“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.”
“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. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
Why doesn’t Obama resign? Because in his own words “Americans deserve better” than him.
$30,000 for every man, woman and child? Boy, that would seem really bad. Unless the worst president in the history of the human race didn’t come along and make it over $50,000 for every man, woman and child.
Under Obama, the debt is nearly $15.2 trillion. But that aint nothing: because Barry Hussein is demanding yet another debt ceiling hike for yet another $1.2 trillion:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House plans to ask Congress by the end of the week for an increase in the government’s debt ceiling to allow the United States to pay its bills on time, according to a senior Treasury Department official on Tuesday.
The debt limit currently stands at $15.194 trillion and would increase to $16.394 trillion with the request.
Hmm. $9 trillion…. $16 trillion. Which one is a more irresponsible, unpatriotic failure of leadership??? Gosh, I vote Democrat so I’m just too…. insane … and stupid… to know…
Feeling…. weak… Must… blame… Bush…
And there: now we Democrats – having healed ourselves – feel much better now. Because that “blame Bush” pill cures everything. Except reality. But why should we care about that?
If there was so much as a shred of honesty or decency in Barack Obama, in the Democrat Party, or in anyone who votes for the Democrat Party, they would do the only honorable thing and just go away and leave decent Americans alone.
I hear North Korea is real nice. And it’s a “People’s republic,” too. With a brand spanking new dear leader messiah. You libs will like it just fine.
Someone commenting on the latest debt ceiling hike (which now makes Obama responsible for the THREE highest debt celing hikes in the history of the entire human race) asked a question. And then he answered it:
“Where does this end? When does this stop? I guess when there is no more money to take from us and then the riots start.”
Another made an even sadder observation:
Greece. Italy. Spain. America. Pathetic.
We voted to collapse when we voted for Obama; and we are getting EXACTLY what we voted for.
On December 31 of this year, Democrats will demonstrate that they are the Party of genuine depravity and utterly reckless stupidity in America - having gone 975 days without bothering to pass ANY budget WHATSOEVER.
