    I do think it was Cartoon Cantor and his Republicans. So who do you think will be blamed when we default?

    That should be an easy answer. That would be the party who abandoned negotiations. I think the American voters will agree.

    There’ll be no default - Obama and the spineless democrats will give in, to the detriment of he Nation; the ‘walk out’ was a calculated tactic – republicans may be crazy but they’re not stupid.

    I think the American public is finally starting to "tune in" to the Republican disasters of the last 10 years.

    One clue is all those recalls. Another is those Republican politicians who are desperately trying to pass as many socially based laws as possible. They know with the changing population, they may not get another chance. That's why they are going after women's rights. And this "slash and burn" of the middle class. Education, Medicare, SS, they want to leave behind as much devastation as possible to protect the uber wealthy for as long as possible.

    I don't know. From what I have read, it may be too late already to lift the ceiling. If we default the repubs may have dug themselves their deepest grave.

    You're right as always rdean:
    Debt ceiling: Deficit battle shaping up as a Republican victory - latimes.com
    Remember that rdean? Obama had his own version of "No New Taxes" when he said what he wasn't gonna' raise taxes on those that make less than 250K.

    Go ahead Mr President, push for tax hikes. The Republicans won't use that as a campaign commercial in 2012 no sir! :lol:

    Rdean doesn't pay taxes. That's why he's so willing to chip in.

    I am sure he's stroking his checkbook now - payable to the U.S. Treasury - leading by pathetic example.

    We have recklessly cut taxes to levels below which we can run our government. The result has been increased debt ever since the tax cuts took effect.

    Time to raise them to previous levels until such time as we have paid off our debt
