We knew we were voting to destroy our Economy when we voted for Obama over Romney.
We simply don't measure up to previous generations. It had to happen eventually. Nothing last forever.

Give it a rest. It could be worse. As Black Dictators go, the Black dictator in Zimbabwe is far more destructive than Obama has been for America....so far at least.

Republicans need to ask themselves if they still need to trash the economy the way they nearly did during the LAST showdown, given that they lost their bid to recapture the White House and have been repudiated in OTHER elections, to some degree, by the voters.

What would they gain by sending the economy down the crapper NOW?

C'mon, GOP, let's be AMERICANS for a change.

Indeed, anyone who believes the two men are comparable is not playing with a full deck.

Republicans need to hold onto their principles, and let the Democrats be damned. Democrats have no morals, or principles so they don't have a problem with making Americans pay for their stupidity.

Reality check for the truly stupid:

1. Republican Leaders Agree U.S. Default Would Be a "Financial Disaster"
2. Ronald Reagan Tripled the National Debt
3. George W. Bush Doubled the National Debt
4. Republicans Voted Seven Times to Raise Debt Ceiling for President Bush
5. Federal Taxes Are Now at a 60 Year Low
6. Bush Tax Cuts Didn't Pay for Themselves or Spur "Job Creators"
7. Ryan Budget Delivers Another Tax Cut Windfall for Wealthy
8. Ryan Budget Will Require Raising Debt Ceiling - Repeatedly
9. Tax Cuts Drive the Next Decade of Debt
10.$3 Trillion Tab for Unfunded Wars Remains Unpaid

A little backward, the federal government is a subsidiary of the
Banking Cartel (aka the Federal Reserve), Large Coroprations and Wall Street. The real power in Washington D.C. is on K Street.

Money is a mechanism for control.(David Korten)

Looks like the TEA people hold the key votes. I called my Congressman, and told him not to give Democrats another dime to squander. Let them go over he damn cliff. Enough is enough. Don't raise the debt level. It is over.

Show where I've demonstrated any such thing, or cease lying about me, please.

Certainly the post you answered offered no hatred or anything partisan or irrational. So far, nothing is all you've got.

Taxes and spending are in the hands of Congress, not the President. Why won't they solve the problem?

You've got the wrong guy here. Nor would Romney have solved the current problem, since he wouldn't have taken office yet.

Try again.

Your congressmen and you are the reason we have no agreement and our economy is in danger. If you want to see a traitor here, you'd better look in the mirror for them.
