    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising Americans debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US government can't pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. America deserves better."

    --Senator Barak Obama 2006

    Now, now. We must not look backward. We must look Forward. That's the Democratic motto.

    Don't look back, that's not fair, unless it's to blame Bush for Obama's shitty job performance.

    If Romney is elected, I can't wait to see the silence from the board's conservatives regarding the first time he raises the debt ceiling.

    I am 100 percent confident we will continue to run deficits until at least 2016, no matter who wins the White House, and no matter who controls the Congress. And I am a critical thinker who is almost never 100 percent confident about anything.

    There is not the necessary critical mass of balls of steel to get the job done. Washington DC is overrun with cowards who get votes by writing checks the taxpayers can't cash, and who are too afraid to lay out the specifics of a real plan to balance the budget. They say things that make their base orgiastic, but the base never notices the promises are never fulfilled and that the politicians they love and defend are chickenshit liars and hypocrites.

    We have the government we deserve.

    You may have a point there.
