Raising The Debt Ceiling is a Sign of "Leadership Failure"

Once again, the 75th time since 1962, we have hit the limit on how much government is permitted to borrow. The argument is we must raise it again to prevent default and so government can pay the bills. What will happen if we do raise it yet again?

Also:

“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.”

Senator Barack Obama, March 16, 2006

Sweet Irony

Sometimes, you just have to laugh. Nothing special about this car or the bumper stickers, we see them all of the time. Except, this one was parked in the Hazel Dell WalMart parking lot while the occupants were inside shopping today when I snapped the photo.

Obama’s Economists: Stimulus Cost $238,000 Per Job Created"

A group of three economists all handpicked by Obama released a report, the Seventh Quarterly Report indicating t hat each job claimed as created or saved cost $238,000 each!

According to a post from Weekly Standard, “the government could simply have cut a $100,000 check to everyone whose employment was allegedly made possible by the ‘stimulus,’ and taxpayers would have come out $427 billion ahead.”

Paying little attention that it is “Obama‚Äôs own Council of Economic Advisors” releasing the numbers, the Obama White House is disputing the claim saying the study is based on “partial information and false analysis.”

Quoted in Fox News

Ethan Pollack, a senior policy analyst with the progressive Economic Policy Institute, told FoxNews.com that the comparison between dollars spent and jobs created or saved shouldn’t be made because “it’s a silly way of looking” at the stimulus.

David Letterman’s "Civility" Towards Michele Bachman

“Signs There’s Already Trouble at Michele Bachmann Campaign Headquarters – Number 6. Latest strategy: X-ray Bachmann’s ass to prove it’s real.”

Can we xray Letterman’s head to make sure there is a brain in it?

What is it with Liberals that must make off color remarks in public about conservative women?

Didn’t he learn with his off color remark about Sarah Palin’s daughter?
