Hiking the debt ceiling is a failure of leadership

Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue.The sooner the US economy collapses the better, so these brutes will finally learn NOT to live beyond their means.

Time for Barry to govern by decree: suspend the Constitution and declare Martial Law.

I agree, the U.S. needs to default.  Obama last sentence was "If you are a leader than it is time to lead".  What he means exactly, I am not sure.  Hope it isn't that he will become a dictator and do as he pleases.


The Congress should not vote on a debt ceiling rise!  Default and lets get the hard times over with and start anew, will a new government.  End the wars and everything!

It means it's time for Barry Soetoro to STFU, pack the fuck up, and get the fuck out of the White House because puppets can't lead... they can only dance at the end of the strings Wall Street pulls...

Barry is no puppet. He is narcissistic, reporting to no one but everyone reports to him in his little world. And impossible to negotiate with. As narcissistic people go, they must be shocked by events into temporary sanity, then you can strike a deal while they fold like a house of cards (continual yelling and screaming at them while calling them names does work, but the effect is delayed by days or weeks). Otherwise, impossible as I said.

Are you a Brit, with that sucky handle it sounds like it.(if not a profound apology to Brits).

You certainly do not sound American.If the POTUS did what you suggest,all hell would break loose here,and globally.

We go down, YOU go down also.

We do not have a Parliment,nor have we ever had a Queen, nor a King.

And, as I live we will never have either, also we will not be governed by decree, without major disastrous consequences.

We are not subjects, we are citizens.

You sir are  useless CUNT.

When  you  say Americans are stupid animals, you include me,and all on this site.

 I take offense to that remark, you are neither a gentleman nor very intelligent.

How did we get homeland security, wars with iraq, afghanistan, libya, etc.? Rule of do-nothing by congrestion, from our non-rulers, fiat currency, tax code, registration as cannon fodder, nuclear power etc.?

What have we ever voted on-----we are not-stupid? Give me a word for this except for doing nothing, please.

Maybe, it is just too early in the morning for me, but I don't see any citizens---I see a lot of people 'subject'ing themselves to more of the 'same old stuff' with a shrug of their head. 

I don't want to call us shit-eaters, but I am at a loss of how else to describe this populace.

Can you help me out, please, sir?

Indeed, let's be positive.  This negativity has got me bummed!  We don't really need a city of gold to solve our problems.  An anti-obesity, anti-laziness pill will work just fine as suddenly the need for health care will plummet along with medicare and medicaid expenditures.  Doctors, now in great surplus, will make house calls, accept chickens or canned goods for payment and NMR imaging machines will be converted to pop vending.  Last saw my doctor about 10 years ago, plan another visit just to chat in another decade or so.

Oh ya, and the backing and support of Dana White, CEO of the UFC. The reason I dropped supporting them... And also the reason this Titanic ship is taking on catastrophic debt water.

Republican talk genius when they are in opposition. Fuck everything up when they are in power. Except now out of power they are trying to really, really fuck things up. Republicans = total feckin' eejits. I used to count myself as one, not with this crop of demented pols and wanna be next big things. Republicans now have a big following of morons too, most of you included. William F. Buckley used to say he spent half of his time 'keeping the nuts out' of the Republican party: he is gone and the nuts are in control.

Agree, they are afraid of bad liberal press propaganda but they needn't be.

89% of Americans polled say the MSM is biased for obama anyway. Obama and liberals are on their way out and are going to take the MSM with them.

Conservatives should push back against the press as part of their MO to win support.
