    Guess liberals want to avoid this thread.....since the lie is so BLATANT....his own Treasury Secretary is even against him...

    Obama is just as financially irresponsible in supporting the teacher union in Wisconsin as he is with the national budget.....he ignores the fact that the Governor of Wisconsin is attempting to bring his state back from the brink of bankruptcy...BO provides no leadership to bring both sides to the table to have an adult discussion about the financial realities...

    Nationally we are also headed for bankruptcy.... but Obama just as irresponsibly continues to spend, spend, spend....completely ignoring the consequences of his actions...

    ...maybe BO really wants America to go bankrupt....the world socialist union dream...?

    Workers of the World.....Unite...!

    I "like" what Giethner says later in his testimony. Something to the effect that the administration, having put this forward wants to see if the House has the "courage" to make more cuts. In other words, he admits that the administration didn't have the "courage" so I guess the best they could do, lacking any semblance of leadership or courage themselves, they are casting about for someone who might have it.

    In that case, they really shouldn't complain if it turns out the House does have the courage and can lead. In that case, the spineless wonders (what else should we expect from a back-bencher who repeatedly voted "present" in the Illinois senate) in the White House.

    Another stunning lack of substance, leadership and moral fiber brought to us by BO.

    Yes....BO is blatantly putting his political aspirations above the well-being of the country...

    He wants the GOP to do the dirty work.....so he can blame them later...

    I was listening to Geithner's testimony on my favorite hate radio shows. He was very direct in admitting that the budget is a sham Congress would be derelict in passing. If a Republican President had submitted a budget and said we're too big a cowards to do what we know has to be done so you do it so we can attack you for what we know needs to be done, the press would be running them through. As it is they are lined up behind the administration ready to attack the Republicans for either being responsible and starving grandma or being irresponsible and passing a sham budget. Life's a beach when you're a liberal, at least in the media.

    Actions speak louder than words and despite the rhetoric coming from our "conservative friends," if you want a party that is responsible for acquiring 84% of the cumulative US national debt since 1950 - vote Republican!

    Well, DUH.

    Trillion dollar deficits are not sustainable.

    Any one with functioning cognitive abilities realizes this.

    This is why businesses use accrual accounting so that you reflect the true consequences of your decisions rather then cash flow, as you're doing. Democrats seldom make decisions they have to pay for, they make decisions their children have to pay for. Your stats are irrelevant. Though I agree Republicans are also irresponsible spenders even though your stats didn't show that, or anything else.
