Both parties are up to their eyeballs in guilt when it comes to the rising national debt. But Obama is by far the worst. The reality is that most of the American people, the ones who are literate and from Red States, are uncomfortable piling on more debt on the next generation. Under Obama alone, the average American worker has been saddled with $50,000 of debt. That's about $20,000 of debt for every man, women and child.
Debt is accumulating so quickly that the debt ceiling debates are coming up more frequently. And whose fault is that?
The President is Irresponsible, Immature and Wrong
He's said that he won't negotiate with Republicans regarding the debt ceiling. What? Won't negotiate?? Everything in life is a negotiation! Obama has to negotiate nearly everything in his life including with his own children! Furthermore this President, to satisfy his egotistical narcissism, loves to be seen negotiating with America's enemies, but when it comes to handling the routine business of our country, the President is AWOL and not up to the task.
In his typical phony way, Obama was flapping his lips yesterday saying "You have never seen in the history of the United States the debt ceiling or the threat of not raising the debt being used to extort a president or a governing party and trying to force issues that have nothing to do with the budget and nothing to do with the debt."
Wrong, wrong, wrong. This man always gets it wrong. From Glenn Kessler at WaPo:
Going back decades, the debt ceiling bills have been linked to campaign-finance reform, Social Security, ending the bombing in Cambodia, voluntary school prayer, banning bussing to achieve integration, and proposing a nuclear freeze. Way back in 1982, then-Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker unleashed a free for all, allowing 1,400 non-germane amendments to the debt ceiling legislation.Obama himself, when he was a Senator, voted against a debt limit increase for budgetary reasons. From WP, then-Senator Obama refused to approve a debt-limit increase in 2006 if there was not a plan to reduce the deficit.
