Yesterday there were some lackluster headlines that Bonior was 'ready to negotiate' on that pesky raising the debt limit thing. Well they didn't. Makes you wonder how many more 'creative' manuvers will be used to avoid dealing with the issue? And how serious a crisis is it anyway when those negotiating a deal aren't even going to meet this week? and PLEASE. Somebody explain to me how our fearless leaders HAVE to raise the debt limit and will do so if everybody agrees to cut spending. If they cut spending, why do they need to raise the debt limit? Does anybody besides me smell a rat here?
