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?
