    In the past 2 weeks we have seen a classic example of systematic failure of both legislative houses and the White House.
    Throughout this "debt crises" - all we have seen our failed leaders do - is think of what effect would this or that do to my chances of getting elected. We have no representation in Washington - they only represent themselves.
    Yesterday economic leaders announced that BOTH the Reid plan and the Boehner plan - "are not serious plans, and do not come close to what is needed".
    Specifically, the estimate is that through increased revenue or spending cuts - any plan needs at minimum $5.5 Trillion in debt reduction, however $7 trillion is what is really needed.
    (over a 10 year period).
    Both of these plans are barely 20% of what is needed to avoid catastrophic economic failure in the next 20 years.

    And don't even try to point fingers at one party or another - neither is even attempting to present a serious plan.

    And the President just proved my point a few minutes ago.
    He came out a few minutes ago (probably a knee jerk reaction to the market falling) and in an attempt to perhaps calm jitters on Wall Street he stated he is confident that a compromise will be accomplished.

    But then........he also made a point in saying that the "Boehner plan does not address the issue".
    FAIL.
    Once again he shows America he is no leader by reducing himself to simply pointing fingers at the other side. He is right that the Boehner plan does not solve the problem - HOWEVER - since the Reid plan is nearly identical in outcome - it is ludicrous to say only one of them doesn't meet the "crises".
    Unless of course the "crises" you are referring to is your next election.

    he came out to what? to announce the summer or re re recovery with a 1.3 fucking GDP number?

    the only thing right now that gets obama motivated is money, he was doing between may and 2 weeks ago a fund raiser every 3-4 days...hes been off that trail of for the last 10 days.....poor baby, he needs very single dime he can beg borrow or steal, we are Iam remember, just bumps in the road.

    One side refuses to compromise, after CAUSING this mess- and half of them are mindless fanatics who are TOTALLY misled by a propaganda machine. Hard to lead lockstep brainwashed dingbats...ask Boehner. Thanks for blowing 2012 though.

    There is no leadership in Washington, D.C. is a true statement.

    Is this something you just figured out?

    Remember I said this...I predict this 1.3% "growth" will be downgraded to near or below zero by year end when the actual numbers come in.
    But hey - it's because we need a QE3 right???
    I am taken to a scene in a movie...enter a Jamaican accent here..."ahhh...we be payin for our past sins we are..the bad mojo man...he be come callin..."

    Probably...I can easily imagine how all the wasted green energy windfalls will damn well keep rolling out while everything he doesn't like will come to a grinding halt.
    This man had no problem adding to the deficit in 28 months - what it took Boooosh to add in 8 years. And where did all this spending get us??
    Oh yeah....sorry....I forgot...we would be in a depression if not for the messiah. :eusa_hand:
