Masters of smoke and mirrors and deception. If this were a Tea Party funded commercial decrying the democrats refusal to cut spending and stop the uncontrolled debt, they'd be called traitors, racists, and liars.

Typical double standard of that party.

This is just the beginning of the 2012 election campaign. The labor dues are bankrolling these efforts, and so are many other liberal contributors.

Ads sponsored by public employee unions will only make Rep. Cantor more popular in his own district. They may as well have just sent the money to produce and distribute the ad to Cantor's campaign fund.

And Obama hasn't initiated any military actions since he was elected? Funny how he claimed he was going to pull all the troops home before he was elected, and we're still there. Pull them all out or leave them in -- a reduction in troops only serves to make those left behind more vulnerable.

Unless we have access to all classified information, then we only know what we are told. If we knew all that was going on, we probably couldn't sleep at night.

Surely is is a good idea for us to raise the debt limit just one more time (?) so we can allow our government to borrow even more money from the Chinese so that we can keep our elected representatives afloat for just one (?) more term..........

Fifty years from now all the undiscovered treasures will be answering to Chinese bosses who will make them work for a change a la "No workee, no eatee" and that will be the country's reward for a century of welfare mongering and liberal delusions.

By all means RAISE the debt ceiling now and forever.

The Chinese will do for us what the Germanic tribes did for Rome.

When under a Chinese funded government, will we be seeing women in 70 thousand dollar Escalades buying 400 dollars of meat at the FL and paying for it with food stamps?????

If your libtards had any appreciation of the future they would be fighting against the idea of raising the debt ceiling but as it is they can't see past their next welfare check or additional public assistance program. Why do I say this? Simple. Check out the public assistance programs in China, or even Japan and South Korea and compare them to the welfare paradise of Charlottesville and the US-----people that will, in the space of just a few decades, be bowing and saying Yes sir" to their new masters that only value profit instead of feel good social programs.

So tell the Libtards to vote YES, OH YES to raising the debt ceiling one more time. Tell them "Don't worry, it won't matter if China holds a few trillion more of our national debt." After all, they don't vote, they will just OWN us.

Both parties are to blame for this mess.George Bush Senior and his 1000 points of light with the free trade agreement that Bill Clinton signed into law,George Jr. started 2 wars that will not change anything.I say bring all our troops home and protect our own borders,And bring our jobs back to
working Americans.

Not the George Bush card again. Don't be a hypocrite. Call the shots for both sides. Good kids continue to be killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, Guantanamo is still open, we've added a third war (if you don't think that's for oil, you're an idiot- Libya is an oil producer for Europe, Syria isn't, so the gov't can continue to kill its citizens while we jump in to keep the oil flowing), we have even more "czars" so the president can do an end run on congress and the czars can hide behind "executive privilege" when called to task, the Patriot act has been extended again, and so on...

Obama is Bush on steroids with a different agenda and a bigger narcissistic streak. Otherwise their tactics are about the same. The only real difference is that Bush actually loves this country.

Agree with who is to blame, for bringing the troops home, and bringing the jobs back. Both parties are making these things entirely too difficult- politicians are so entrenched in their beliefs they no longer care what is best for it's citizens.

Our government officials forget that they are stewards of 300,000,000 people, not only those that agree with them or give them money.

While I am not really a fan of Obama or Bush, I can't Obama is more narcissistic more narcissistic than Bush. Bush seriously thinks God wanted him to run for president(seriously, read Decision Points). That's pretty narcissistic!
