What part of out of money, and live within your means do the Democrats and Barrack Obama not understand. They whine and complain that we need to reach an agreement, when the House of Representatives have already done the job they were sent to Washington to do, Cut, Cap and Balance.
Does Harry Reid REALLY think we the people are that stupid? While Highwayman Harry cries over the possible loss of federal funds for his beloved Cowboy Poetry festival, and Barrack Obama refuses to rescind the 53 Billion Dollars promised to his buddy Jeff Immelt at GE to build High Speed Rail no one will ride, Rome is on fire.
I feel compelled to remind everyone that in 2006 Barrack Obama himself said, "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
You are right Mr. President, we do deserve better, and the lack of leadership is squarely in your corner. The GOP in the House have done their job, you just don't like it. You and Highwayman Harry would much rather enslave our children under a mountain of unspeakable debt than swallow a little pride, admit your policies haven't worked, and accept a deal to pull our beloved nation back from the brink of disaster.
Shame on you Mr. President. Shame on you Mr Reid. We know. We the American public, know that like Nero, you are fiddling while the Nation burns. We know you would prefer to burden our children and grandchildren with the yoke of bondage to the Federal Leviathan for generations to come, you would gladly hand our country over to our advisories than act responsibly. You do not fool us.
When the country crumbles under the weight of your massive increases in spending over the last two and a half years, we WILL hold you responsible. We know it is only your ego and childish insistence on having your own way for political reasons which will lead the country to ruin.
Shame on you Mr. Obama, Shame on your house!
