    SNIP:
    Americans for Prosperity will spend $1 million to put this 30-second spot on television that contrasts the debt-limit philosophies of Barack Obama and, er … Barack Obama. When Obama was safely ensconced as a backbencher in the US Senate, raising the debt ceiling in 2006 (to $8.95 trillion) was “a sign of leadership failure.” Five years later, Obama’s colleagues passed $4.5 trillion in new debt ceiling limits while controlling Congress, and now Obama wants another $2.7 trillion. Why that amount? The ad explains:

    In fact, Obama’s not the only Democrat with an interesting record on debt-ceiling votes and positions. Byron York gives us a look at Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, and others who now accuse Republicans of playing partisan games, and find that they seem to be suffering from a case of projection (via Instapundit):

    2.7 Trillion. Why that amount?
    Because the new report that CBO released for the cost of the new Health Care Bill is 1.2 Trillion dollars instead of 960 billion.
    It has to be funded for the next two years that's why.

    who is it that is swinging this threat of default like an axe?


    Who is it that crashed the world economy with their historically failed ideas?


    You people are the minority.

    How is it you are getting your way in this country?


    How is it that the Majority of Americans WANT taxes on the wealthy raised yet that is not going to happen?


    Its because this mess was entirely CREATED out of nothing by the right.
