Boehner offers to take debt limit off the table

Dec 16, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

House Speaker John A. Boehner has offered to push any fight over the federal debt limit off for a year, a concession that would deprive Republicans of leverage in the budget battle but is breathing new life into stalled talks over the year-end "fiscal cliff." The offer came Friday, according to people in both parties familiar with the talks, as ... (more)

You can take the debt ceiling off the table but you cant stop Americas creditor nations from making an issue of this in the future.If other nations that lend money to the U.S. refuse to continue doing so because they think we*re too much in debt and wont be able to pay back then the U.S. will find out what a fiscal cliff really looks like.And it looks like Greece.

Boehner is giving Obama everything he wants. When it fails, and it will, it will be Obama's Depression. Obama's debt, Obama's failed Presidency. Obama's mess for the next generation of Rublicans to fix. After the Deocrats blamed Hoover for the Deprssion Republcans din't win an election for 40 years.

The cigarette puffing Boehner needs to go and someone with lungs and a backbone needs to step up and tell the self-serving slug who dropped out of bill ayers' behind to take a hike.
These RINOs like Boehner are gutless wonders and they are responsible for obama's reelection. Case in point, Libya 9/11. At the end of the presidential debate 2 the lying obama claimed he said in the Rose Garden that Libya 9/11 was a terrorist attack and that sht was backed up by the fat azz moderator. Romney could have nailed the lying obama on the issue in debate 3 but Romney and his RINO handlers let it all roll by giving the lying obama the upper hand throughout the debate.
This silent affirmative action program that's been going on for the marxist man-child b. h. obama is a disgrace. The passes he receives because of his skin color is quite obvious. That self-serving lying slug should be treated like everyone else who is a bag of manure...
So what happened to content of character? Apparently no one in DC has any.

Attention lance lowlife!!! What happened in Nov. was suckers like you voted for a despicable self-serving slug who was mentored by bill ayers.
Now here we are again following a mass shooting having to listen to the slug who was mentored by the America hating communist-terrorist bill ayers. We might as well hear condolences from loughner and holmes as to hear anything from someone as close to ayers as b. h. obama. It's obvious to everyone but clowns like you that b. h. obama's head is full of the same deranged disdain ayers' has for America.
It was ayers' diabolical plan to kill rich people, kill parents and exterminate 25,000,000 Americans...Obviously those plans included more than the 20 first graders that b. h. obama pretends to care about...It's just like the Rose Garden sadness for Libya 9/11 then it's off to Vegas to party with jay-z...Now GFY.

Boehner and other Repubs finally realized that listening to Right Bent Tea Baggers such as yourself is a waste of time and political poison theses days.
Back to the nut job fringes for you.
The GOP is dropping that part of their base of simpletons like a hot rock.
Your completly out of touch with teh majority of Americans who actually put this Nation ahead of Idealogical demagogery.

Someone should really do a study on the correlation between Right Wing beliefs and scumbag A-Holes with a personality disorder...so many of them sound exactly alike,just like this paranoid lemming.

Oh please, all that is happening is that the training is bearing fruit. The "majority" of Americans are only putting up their freedoms in exchange for the government to take responsibility for their lives - lol, yet you pitifully claim some kind of enlightenment is occurring. No - it's just the pacified, dumbed-down peasantry fumbling about.

You are very similar to Limbaugh in that I could predict everything you and he will consider the problem and solution regarding any given situation so what's the point of listening to either? Now get back to the game....Limbaugh is waiting - of course he will make tens of millions of dollars at it at least.

The Republican Party is a failed political party because it is populated by mediocrities like John Boehner. There is not one true leader amongst them. They are just a bunch of wheeling-dealing hacks doing the bidding of their big business cronies.

True so true. A couple of guys have tried to do some meaningful things but as a party they are empty and really, their only use seems to be as a propaganda tool by the leftists. It's as if their pretend position as absolute opposition is actually making matters worse. The left will use them while destroying them until they are like the so called "conservatives" in Europe. Where tweaking the centrally planned society in a "conservative" fashion is considered an alternative.
