    Think about it. You radical lefties think about too if you can. Obama said today he is willing to compromise about the debt ceiling and even Pelosi is talking about addressing the debt problem. What would have happened if republicans didn't gain the majority in congress? Democrats would have been taxing and spending and pretending everything was fine like they did before Fannie Mae collapsed. Isn't it obvious that Obama would have been leading the US down the path to ruin if the Tea Party didn't put some backbone into the republican party and stop the foolishness?

    That's all it takes to avoid a train wreck.

    There's a brilliant concession by bunny. Both parties suck. Think about if you can radicals. The republican majority in the House caused Obama to come to grips with his failied economic policies. If it wasn't for the Tea Party putting some backbone into republicans and winning the majority in the House I guaran-damn-tee you would have seen a collapse in the economy that would make Fannie look like childs play. Maybe that's what Obama wants.

    Like when Clinton had a balanced budget with a republican House and like when Bush went down in flames with a democrat House? Are we talking about that kind of train wreck?

    FLASH ANNOUNCEMENT....
    While the Republicans were in total control the debt ceiling was raised 7 times.

    My Point?
    Both parties are equally irresponsible and are addicted at spending our money.
    The sooner we stop the partisan rock throwing and start DEMANDING both sides do the right thing - we might get somewhere.

    And which party has put any regs/changes in place to prevent another finaincial fiasco meltdown?
    Neither one!

    both seem to think that more of the same will fix things.
    Dumbutts all.
