There are 91 comments on the The Post-Standard story from Jul 30, 2011, titled Analysis: Plenty of damage already done in debt-ceiling showdown. In it, The Post-Standard reports that:

There is no changing how Washington works. It doesn't. Even if a bitterly divided Congress and President Barack Obama avoid a U.S. debt default by striking a last-second deal, as all sides expect, plenty of damage has been done.

The damage was accomplished single-handedly by the islamofascist in the White House and liberal Congress fully went along with him.

- 400 BILLION tax dollars each year for illegal Mexicans and illegal muslims.

- BILLIONS of tax dollars in social security payments each year to those who never worked a day in their life.

- 350 BILLION tax dollars a year to home-grown welfare recipients.

- 50 BILLION tax dollars sent each year to Hussein Obama's homeboy muslims in Africa.

- MILLIONS of tax dollars used to subsidize over 2,000 mosques on U.S. soil.

- Hussein's weekly vacations on Air Force One, each trip costing American tax payers 21 MILLION dollars each.

- BILLIONS of tax dollars to bail out black 'farmers', most of whom have never seen a live chicken or a corn stalk in their life.

- BILLIONS of tax dollars used to bail out businesses owned by muslims.

Hussein Obama runs the most corrupt regime in history.

Certainly the damage has been done...

o-bribe-a is successfully dividing the country against itself....

o-bribe-a has created more hatred, division, negitivity, and constant turmoil in America than at any time in the history of the country.

o-bribe-a must go.....

he is bad for America, the functioning of government and Americans.

as far as the country's credit rating and standing....
It will NOT matter if the country does avoid default......this time.

The entire world knows America is a flucked up mess.....
A dysfunctional, leaderless, government of an increasingly demoralized people, teetering on financial disaster.

I am NOT proud to be an American.....

To get a last minute deal, both sides have to be willing to give a little. The anarchist tea party Republicans will give nothing. They will only take,
take from my Social Security, my Medicare and from the Medicaid of many Americans who depend on it for the basics of health care. And because they come up with a "plan," they seem to believe the Democrats are obligated to sign on in spite of the fact that their "plan" is totally unacceptable to the Dems.

It's like someone wants to sell their car for $5000
(Blue Book price) and a tea party person offers $1000. The seller is then obligated to accept the $1000 just because it was offered?

That's what's going on. The Republicans are offering up nothing of their own and expect the Democrats to do all the giving-up. No way!

the press won't report on the only good thing to come from this...
the people of the united states voted in a group of congressmen that went to washington and stood up to their word...to stop the spending.
neither party was able to bribe, threaten, coerce or, otherwise intimidate them to back down.

we actually elected people with integrity, who care MORE about saving the country than their own butts!
bravo to you, freshman congressmen!

If a private citizen were to run up a debt to revenue ratio as high as that of the federal government, that citizen would have a credit score in the 400's.

This country deserves to have its credit rating dropped. Now the American people need to determine who is responsible for these irresponsible actions and fire them.

Since $4 trillion in debt has been run up during the odummy reign of terror, odummy needs to be held responsible and run out of the White House. Closely behind him should be all of the democrats who have insisted on tax increases and who have stonewalled on attempts by conservatives to reduce the size of government and to reduce spending.

Excessive spending has been going on for years...it exploded under Bush and Obama. But some way, some how, Congress has to quit blaming everybody else and just DO something about it. It's not gonna be pretty, but it's either do something now or the downgrade in credit rating is going to look like a Sunday School picnic.

As the other poster said, with a credit rating equal to a consumer's 400's, the bankcard holder would already have stopped further spending and the interest rate would have escalated. It's time this Congress and President used some good business sense -- or get some ordinary smart people in there to show them how to live within a budget. This bunch apparently cannot figure it out.

Show me the bill passed by Congress and signed into law that gave Boehner the right to spend money defending DOMA.

You keep saying Dems, tax and spend. Well what about the unauthorized spending by Boehner and the TEA party over DOMA?

Debt-to-GDP has SKYROCKETED under the communist kenyan fraud's ahem, "leadership". Just imagine a chart showing projected ratios -- his budgets call for ANNUAL $1+ trillion budget deficits for the next 10 years.

When Democrats have controlled congress (thereby the appropriations), debt as a percentage of GDP has gone up each time over the last 30 years. With Republicans in control, it happened only once, right after 9/11 and the 2001 recession.

PEOPLE BEFORE WE ARE LEAD TO THE SLAUDER.. What
is he going to do? Who will give him more credit?
What are you, his loyal ones going to ask of him.
You all know it was coming months ago and you kicked the can down the road until it can't be done anymore. Who is going to fall? Not one
of his backers, right? Ask for others just not
any of your croonies. Right? Do you know whats
right, if you did, why did you not speak up before
you let him break the bank????Because you did what
was expected of his lackeys, lied and hid. The gig
is up, time to pay or Obama and you won't have a
pot to go in. That might be something to watch
before we kick the whole worthless bunch OUT on
your As$!!!that will be the day the Country will
rise again. You leave an awful taste in the mouth
of any who hears your lying cheating spending mouths.....Pelosi, Reid and Obama are closed up
