Are you two secret tea party agents? Only tea baggers would try to confuse people about the real issue by arguing on and on pages after pages about nonsensical stuff.

The latest news on the issue is this. Boehner now wants $3 trillion cuts without any tax raise at all. Let's step back a moment and take a look. Initially, the republicans wanted $400 billion cutsfrom social security and medicare without raising any taxes. After 2 weeks of negotiation, Obama agreed to cut $900 billion from social security and medicare without raising any taxes. Boehner walked away from the negotiations yesterday. Today, they announced they want $3,000 billion cuts.

Obama raised a good point yesterday. Will the republicans say yes to anything at all? They kept raising their demands everytime the democrats agreed to something.

Obama is too moderate to do that. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

I am absolutely appalled at how average republican voting people can be so hypocritical. Bush expanded the executive power. During his time, they raised the debt ceiling 7 times. And all of that was done without a single voice raising in dissention. Now that we have for the first time a black president, all of the sudden we have the formation of an entire political party for the soul purpose of being against the current president.

Where the hell were all the fiscal conservatives during Bush when he turned the biggest surplus we ever had from the Clinton years to the biggest deficit we ever had? Where the hell were all the fiscal conservatives when they raised the debt ceiling 7 times for Bush?

I am still convinced the tea party and other conservatives are racist at heart. They just hide it behind the political correctness called fiscal conservatism. This was not a problem during the Bush years even though Bush was spending like there was no tomorrow.

Their fear of "Socialism" is color blind. I don't think it would matter if it were Obama or Kerry. The Tea Party and related movements were built from the hyperpartisanship used during the Bush administration. They are are a product of Fox News, not a racist group, IMHO.


There have been plenty of democratic (communist) presidents in the past. Yet, they created an entire party dedicated to opposing the president just as the first black president took office.

I don't believe in coincidence.

Re: Paying The MilitaryPerhaps
Didn't you hear? The republicans have been trying to cut medicare and social security in the name of fiscal conservatism.

Re: So Where Are We Now?
Like creationists repubs are really good at obfuscating the matter. They shifted from demanding 400 billion in cuts with no revenue to 900 to 3000 and then walked out of negotiations, and then somehow managed to blame Obama.

Congrats republicans for turning me from being against Obama to for him.
PS still a disgruntled Hillary supporter.
