And so, a move is increasingly afoot to have Obama raise it himself. It’s hard to imagine that the growing clamor doesn’t have the approval of the White House. And it’s hard to imagine a more egregious abuse of power.There are few Constitutional principles more clear than that Congress is in charge of allotting the nation’s cash. . .

    Obama doesn't give a fuck.

    He's an ideologue.

    We all have seen how Maobama works. He will attempt to usurp Congress' power of the purse. He is trying to destroy Congress and is doing a good job. Are we as the PEOPLE of America going to let Maobama get away with his manical spending?

    I wrote a post earlier tonight called Barack Obama's dependency power. He needs the debt ceiling raised in my opinion he will lose his power. A high percentage of Americans like him for the free stuff. Without he free stuff he has no power

    Yep.....

    " Mr. Lew is to the left of the departing Timothy Geithner, just as Senator Hagel is to the left of Leon Panetta, and Senator Kerry is to the left of Hillary Clinton. It gives you a sense of Mr. Obama’s second-term direction, which is likely to move toward high taxes at home and weak national security abroad."

    No.

    But with every moronic thread you add to the body of evidence that most on the right are blind partisan hacks, clueless idiots, or likely both.
