    but expecting different Results. Raising the Debt Limit again should be labelled 'Insane' for sure. And it certainly doesn't = "Hope & Change" either. Now if they agree to raise it with real spending cuts attached,that could be perceived as doing something different. And that could end this endless cycle of Insanity. Personally i do not agree with raising the Debt Limit but if they get some real spending cuts attached,i could be more forgiving. But for Gods sake,lets not just raise the Debt Limit the way it has been done so many times in the past. Lets do something different so we can expect different results. Lets just stop the Insanity.

    Congress having the authority to raise the debt ceiling is the same thing as letting a convicted drunken driver set the blood alcohol limit for DUI.

    I agree it is a sad charade. But they're going to raise it. That's just the reality. Lets just hope they attach some serious spending cuts to it. I'll take what i can get at this point.

    The day was going well until... I watched Obama's speech (translate: campaign stomp).

    When the POTUS holds up China as a shining example of the way for this country to progress and prosper... something is very, very wrong. The man has an Alice in Wonderland ideology but no concept of leadership. I know he's not stupid nor uneducated but clearly something is wrong with his neural synapses. ... Just listening to him talk makes me want to puke.

    Cut enough to reduce the debt and you won't have to raise anything.

    Yea good point. The best we can hope for is the Republicans getting them to agree to some sort of spending cuts being attached to raising the Limit. It's all we can hope for at this point.
