    Here is the problem with you Flaylo. You are more concerned about which party to blame and you completely ignore the fact that whether the debt limit increases or doesn't the American people are screwed.

    See we, the people, are the ones that lose in this entire debate. Our politicians from both parties have abused this people. They have abused us with overtaxation. They have spent money that even our children will never see. They have tried to regulate everything in our lives. And because of their grabs for power, their poor stewardship, and a complete failure of leadership on this matter, we have to discuss whether we default now or give our politicians power to spend more money and default later.

    And despite all these serious issues facing our nation. You are more focused on how you can blame the Republicans for it. Do you have no love for your country whatsoever? Or are you just going to waste your life on the government dole with the hopes that playing these games will make you somehow less responsible before your fellow man and before God for your lack of action to actually fix this country?

    Stop being a stooge and be a freaking man for once in your life.

    Obama's already admitted he's a failed leader

    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. ... It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies." -- Barack Hussein Obama, Failed Leader, Community Organizer and low-level socialist agitator

    Everyone loses either way. Just go back and look at this current President's own past words on opposing raising Debt Limits. He was right back then. He's wrong now. Hopefully there will be real spending cuts attached but i'm not very optimistic about that. This thing is a huge Lose/Lose for Americans. When will more people wake up to that sad reality?

    Brooks isn't a conservative. Nice try.

    Who cares more about the debt ceiling the rich or the poor? The rich because they risk becoming poor. The poor don't care because they are not going to get more poor.

    Brooks was just giving voice to fairly obvious points.

    It doesn't get any more obvious than Obama calling himself a failure

    Possibly the biggest and most egregious Flip-Flops in Political History. This current President now cheerleading for Raising Debt Limits after years & years of insulting & criticizing the other guys for doing it,really is pretty disgusting. This guy has no shame. I recommend everyone go and read this guy's own past words on opposing raising Debt Limits. How can so many people conveniently ignore such awful dishonesty & hypocrisy? Those people are as soul-less as he is.
