When did our federal politician's start selling out America?
When did they start offshoreing our job's?
When did they start giveing our technology to china?
when did they decide to put the grandchildren in debt to our enemy china?
when did they, screw it the list goes on and on.
why to we pay these traitor's?
why do we pay their health care?
why do we pay their retierment?
Iam shur an audit of their offshore investing would shed some light on the subject

Whether you agree with his approach or not, Obama is trying to analyze the problem and work toward toward a solution. Republicans don't seem to be facing reality.

Instead of working to solve the nations debt ceiling issue and seriously back their rhetoric with action, the GOP (as Sen. McConnell reaffirmed with Chris Wallace last week on Fox) is more concerned with their desire to oppose anything Obama does rather than doing the job they were elected to do and represent their constituents. Not only has the GOP now failed to deliver on their promises of JOBS, JOBS, JOBS but they have also failed to negotiate in good faith toward a solution to a crisis they manufactured for political gain. As Lindsey Graham so aptly put it: "We (i.e. the GOP) only have ourselves to blame."

Obama keeps talking like it is a simple matter of compromise. He is saying that if he is going to give on budget cuts they the religicons need to give on taxes. What he seems to miss is that no matter what happens with taxes we still has to make the spending cuts.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising Americaís debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government canít pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Governmentís reckless fiscal policies.
Increasing Americaís debt weakens us domestically and internationally."
Senator Barrack Obama 2006

Here's some questions for the POTUS:

Was that a lie then or is it your lie now?

Why is it that you expect others to do differently?
The word is hypocrisy..

Leadership failure- Why no budget when the DemocRats had a super majority, BO?
Too busy creating more huge spending programs and hiring federal workers with wild abandon that add no value and have no constitutional basis?

Why do DemocRats propose to spend even more of other people's money rather than address spending issues?

Why are all of the "cuts" in spending accounting tricks that kick in years from now after the US is Trillions further in debt?

Don't expect answers from the empty suit until the townsfolk show up with torches and pitchforks.
