QE is tied to debt is tied to political posturing.
Something is WRONG with QE - Otterwood Capital Management
it was above his paygrade at the time
he didn't know then that America is NOT a banana republic
I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt limit.

Ah, the Pendulum President.
"..... And I will not cum in your mouth"
And it's all Harry Reid's fault!
i cant make out the signature...but that person sounds like someone we need.....right?..right?????
what,...what?..oh, never mind...
Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)
VOTING AGAINST RAISING THE DEBT CEILING
March 16, 2006
Official National Debt at that time: 8.6 trillion USD
Official National Debt NOW: Nearly 18 trillion USD
Come on guys, you can't hold this against him. He was stoned out of his gourd when he said those things.
No, this was before the reptiles killed the original Barrack Obama and replaced him with a droid.
It makes one wonder whom to believe, the all knowing honorable senator, or the apparent two faced president.
Debt ceilings be racist!
President Obohica strikes again!
That's only absurd if you believed him
I told you he was a Chimp.....monkey see, monkey do!
Watch it buddy...plenty of chimps are more intelligent than that piece of two-shaded illegitimate douchebag Kenyan mulatto mash-up.
Constitutional republic tribunal time. Every democrat in the house and senate should explain this flip-flop. Everyone who voted for the Patriot Act, FISA, NDAA should explain theirselves. This government is to remain shutdown until we get some answers. We can start with you, before you die, poppy bush and dick fucking cheney.
Wasn't this one of those things he had read into the official record after the fact?
80% of life is showing up.
a woman always reserves the right to change her mind
4give him, he didn't know better then...
This is now.
Game hasn't change.
I wonder what a handwriting expert would say about that signature? My guess: self-absorbed prima donna delusional sociopath. But I'm no expert.
False bravado..... shaky lines on big letters. He is playing way above his game.
If you see the signatures of people like Elvis, who "knew" they were stars, there is a boldness and bigness/penache to their signatures.
This is a pretenders signature.
Plus his real name is Mu-Barak Husein O'sorterobamao.....
Incdentally, Al-buraq, from which the name is derived, was the prophet's horse on his ride to the seventh heaven... and means lightening.
It's ALL in the name...
Al-Bur?q (Arabic: ??????? al-Bur?q "lightning") is a mythological steed, described as a creature from the heavens which transported theprophets. The most commonly told story is how in the 7th century, Al-Buraq carried the Islamic prophet Muhammad from Mecca toJerusalem and back during the Isra and Mi'raj or "Night Journey", which is the title of one of the chapters (sura), Al-Isra, of the Quran.
If Boenner had any balls (that doesn't sound the way I intended), he would read that statement into the record during a press clip, and say, "At least we agree on one thing".
And then roll around on the floor and laugh his ass off.
Asshats, all of them.
When Lincoln was called two-faced, he said, If I had two faces, do you think I'd use this one?
No, this is before the droids realized that Obama was a reptile from the very beginning.
Bankster puppet pants on fire.
Fuck you you corrupt piece of bankster owned monkey.
In Obama's defense....
Oh yeah, there really is no defense.
TIS, you remember Bill Hicks? Crazy as it sounds, he may have been exactly right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MRykTpw1RQ
Bill Hicks was one of the most underrated comedian-philosophers of all time, IMO. He was very much in the George Carlin mold, but Hicks was far and away the one comedian to draw attention to the diabolical forces of marketing & advertising, and their devastating effects on society.
Anyone who is familiar with Big Pharma's complex and evil marketing strategy that is referred to as "astroturfing" understands how purposefully evil the advertising industry is.
What a shitty-ass signature. Can't you write in cursive better than a first-grader?
Semper MF Fi.
E-4 speakin' the truth, baby...oh yeah!
Agreed, and where's the "H" for Hussein?
Maybe it was signed on H ... would explain why it looks like tits and ass.
As someone who's been into philography for some time now, that looks like a really poor autopen.
Re the "shitty ass signature"
Either Obama has Parkinsons or his hand was shaking because he was laughing so hard when signing.
Note the big zero, not a continuous penstroke.
The Forbes article states Obama began to use an autopen when he was President, so this must be some sort of composite image, as I doubt he would have had use or need of one as a Senator.
Either that or we have the makings of a good new conspiracy...
srsly wtf. How hard is it to make an O?
You try making your marionette sign an "O". It's harder than it sounds.
I guess we'll have to wait for Michelle's memoirs.
New lows for ZH. Of all things, this is what you find outrageous?
Outrageous what? The signature or the statement? As for the signature, it is simply childish. The statement in the congressional record was probably written for him. He doesn't know what he believes. He simply does as he's told. Got him elected-twice. If you had a brain, you might begin to wonder, but alas, no. You don't know what you you think, either, until Stephanopouluapuss or Diane Sawyerpenisandlaughed tells you so.
There layers in that document?
Too funny, I wonder if Reggie Love believed him?
Now let's go find his real birth certificate.
It's 'complicated'...now that I'm POTUS... Do as I say, not as I said!

Loved this comment on YouTube referring to that video:
"Came for boobs, left for sanity"
I could only make it through about 30 seconds of that retard. I think I am actually dumber for looking at it. That said, it had 100,000+ +1 views. I am going to go and rub some dirt in my eyes now.
I watched the whole thing. Even watched part of another one. Then went for a walk with my daughter and had a good chat. The bimbo will make for good entertainment in the FEMA camps as she is obviously not part of the group which will stand a chance outside of FEMA.
And nothing would change
"Negotiating with Obama is like playing chess with a pigeon. The pigeon knocks over all the pieces, shits on the board and then struts around like it won the game."
-- Vlad Putin
Sorry to burst you bubble but this expression has been around for a very long time, dates back to the 18 th century and is called "Pigeon Chess".... I doubt Putin said this...
The expression reintroduced in 2005
Pigeon chess" or "like playing chess with a pigeon" is a figure of speech originating from a comment made in March 2005 on Amazon by Scott D. Weitzenhoffer regarding Eugenie Scott's book Evolution Vs. Creationism: An introduction:
Perhaps, but the impetus of it being said by Putin made me spit coffee on my keyboard.
Oh stop. Vlad learned all about using psyops way back when he was a good little commie at KGB school. He can use any quote or whatnot, and make himself look good. See how effective it worked? Macholatte got dozens of up arrows. Makes ol' Vlad look kinda cool and Obama, more like a fool. He'll be quoting Mark Twain soon enough. Mission Accomplished!
PS: He ain't funding RT for the commercials now is he!
You think with all the talent walking around Moscow that they could do better than Sophie Co and what's-her-face on Breaking the Set. Whatever happened to Lauren Lyster?
Just because the attribution is (likelely purposefully) contrived doesn't mean the sentiment isn't spot-on.
Ever notice the smirk on the jerk?
Putin may not have said it first, but he sure as shit thought multiple times, while sitting across the table from Bammer & Company at these summits!!
As probably any other person in the same position over the years from 2009 FORWARD!
I understand everyone's shit's emotional right now, but President Camachobama has a 3-point plan that's gonna fix everything:
1) oppose increasing the debt limit
2) get elected
3) support increasing the debt limit
At least we arent running out of burrito coverin's yet
Yeah, but what does the one-trick pony do for the next 3 years besides fucking up the US even more?
The plan is to have the US go dark on 11/13/13. The other plan is to give Obama the ACA in exchange for cutting ALL the entitlement programs. Kind of a win-win situation. Obama gets his signature piece of legislation and grandma gets her social security cut off.
you forgot 4) Be a major pain in the ass for the Secret Service and walk down the street from the White House just to buy a fucking sandwich.
4) Increase the electrolytes in O'Brawndo...
Brawndo, it's got what eggplants need.
you left off
4) make "certain" groups obscenely rich while making regular people POOR
BO's opposition to an increase in 06 has been beat to death here. but why no where else?
In photo-op & sound bite land, wouldn't that document being displayed at the beginning of every repub counter point "Ross Perot style" be a simple strategy?

"PANEM ET CIRCENSES"
Thank you for that! Didn't know the latin phrase for it. DIY bumper stickers in mind.
"Bread and circuses" (or bread and games) (from Latin: panem et circenses) is a metaphor for a superficial means of appeasement. In the case of politics, the phrase is used to describe the creation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace, as an offered "palliative." Juvenal decried it as a simplistic motivation of common people. The phrase also implies the erosion or ignorance of civic duty amongst the concerns of the common man.
One Panem in Blue, Circenses in Red.
Doubt if Whale-Martians would get it.
Obama has been hanging around John Kerry for too long.
"I was against the debt ceiling before I was for it."
He's playing ketchup, er, catchup.
"I was a Kenyan before I was an Indonesian before I pretended I was an American."
Is there a hand writing expert available to analyse that signature? Looks to me like a split personality. Like half black and half white schizoid..... oh wait. Never mind.
According to http://putroperdana.wordpress.com/2011/07/09/traits-in-handwriting/ , inflated, very tall capitals means an arrogant, conceited personality. Also note the length of the "a" at the end of his last name. If word or name endings are long, it denotes an angry person. In addition, if there is a line drawn through the signers name, like the "O" in Obama, it could mean someone who is self critical, unhappy and a person who has something they do not wish to reveal about themselves.
Gee, ya think?
You don't need to look at his handwriting to know he's a dick....
I likewise wonder about the handwriting. I am no graphologist, but practically speaking, that seems like a very contrived, artificial signature, suggestive of pretentiousness and insincerity. What can it really tell us about the writer? Any resident experts online today?
well, i might not be a graphologist but i did stay at a holiday inn express last night.
and in short i'd say that signature is indicative of a punktard.
Remember, the poor guy had to learn to write Dunham, then learn to write Soetoro, then learn to write Obomber.
You know whats wrong with QE?
A bunch of bankers are eating the money and spending it on foreign garbage like foreign sports cars the depreciate in value by 70% the moment you buy them.
If the money was actually going to citizens and being used to pay down debts the economy would de-leverage and expand..... but everyone is stuck in the same mess they were in , in 2007 ~ 2009 only worst... the only ones doing better are financial institutions.
Everything else is falling apart or papering their shit over to look profitable.
This is a trusted source of information???
Whoa, there are principles...they just dont benefit us.
Could imagine how often the MSM would be reminding the sheeple of this act if it had been done by a Republican?
Wait a minute...
I could vote for a guy like that.
If I thought he wasn't a lying sack of shit.
It's different this time.
he draws his "O" like a 4-year-old who is tracing for the very first time.
That is because he has a hard time remembering his given name.
His real initials B.S....would be too obvious or lead to too much justifiable snickering.
'Looks like the all seeing eye if you ask me
B.O. or Body Odor isn't much of an improvement.
Yeah, that's not a signature but a drawing. Was that a Borg that wrote that?
I see a drawing of 2 titties and a VJJ.
2 year old.
Well obviously conditions are SO much different now....since Chalky is president we obviously no longer have a failure of leadership, it's perfect now, so the coast is clear to raise the debt limit to whatever!
His lips are moving...
It's all Bullshit!!!
Linda Green. Nice touch.
I didn't catch it.... I'm slow, but it is brilliant.
Got to love our favorite combat artist.
OK - given there is "only" $4 T in public Treasury debt 1 yr and longer...and given the Fed can only buy 70% of every specific Treasury issuance, this means there is "only" $2.8 T available for the Fed to buy - of which they already own $2.2 T (since they own no debt 1yr and less). So, in less than 1yr @ current QE rate Fed will own all new and existing Treasury Bills / Bonds / TIPS up to their 70% limit and there will in effect never be any interest rate risk to the Federal gov...unless no one wants to own even the other 30% the Fed can't buy...or the Fed subsequently amend their rules to allow an 80% or 90% or 100% Fed ownership of all Bills and Bonds.
That means all the risk will be in the $7 T worth of public debt notes if somebodies decide to simply stop rolling (of which almost all $5 T of foreign held debt falls)...all the excitement is in the front end now. The Fed owns none but could own $7T in short order??? Would that also be known as hyperinflation???
A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.
He asked, “What are all those clocks?”
St. Peter answered, “Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie the hands on your clock will move.”
“Oh,” said the man, “whose clock is that?”
“That’s Mother Teresa’s. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.”
“Incredible,” said the man.
“That’s Abraham Lincoln’s clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life,” St. Peter informed him.
“Where’s Obama’s clock?”
“His clock is in Jesus’s office. He’s using it as a ceiling fan.”

Check out his signature...doesn't have nice steady flowing lines. It's almost like he has only had that name for a couple of years
he didn't sign that
The guy hasn't had his own thought for so long that we can hardly blame him for not being able to keep the lies straight.
BS??, your views.I think it's right up his alley.
Does not compute
The full speech is worth reading
March 16, 2006 CONGRESSIONAL RECORD—SENATE S2237-2238:
“Mr. OBAMA. Mr. President, I rise today to talk about America’s debt problem.
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 the U.S. 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. Over the past 5 years, our federal debt has increased by $3.5 trillion to $8.6 trillion. That is ‘‘trillion’’ with a ‘‘T.’’ That is money that we have borrowed from the Social Security trust fund, borrowed from China and Japan, borrowed from American taxpayers. And over the next 5 years, between now and 2011, the President’s budget will increase the debt by almost another $3.5 trillion.
Numbers that large are sometimes hard to understand. Some people may wonder why they matter. Here is why: This year, the Federal Government will spend $220 billion on interest. That is more money to pay interest on our national debt than we’ll spend on Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. That is more money to pay interest on our debt this year than we will spend on education, homeland security, transportation, and veterans benefits combined. It is more money in one year than we are likely to spend to rebuild the devastated gulf coast in a way that honors the best of America.
And the cost of our debt is one of the fastest growing expenses in the Federal budget. This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy, robbing our cities and States of critical investments in infrastructure like bridges, ports, and levees; robbing our families and our children of critical investments in education and health care reform; robbing our seniors of the retirement and health security they have counted on.
Every dollar we pay in interest is a dollar that is not going to investment in America’s priorities. Instead, interest payments are a significant tax on all Americans—a debt tax that Washington doesn’t want to talk about. If Washington were serious about honest tax relief in this country, we would see an effort to reduce our national debt by returning to responsible fiscal policies.
But we are not doing that. Despite repeated efforts by Senators CONRAD and FEINGOLD, the Senate continues to reject a return to the commonsense Pay-go rules that used to apply. Previously, Pay-go rules applied both to increases in mandatory spending and to tax cuts. The Senate had to abide by the commonsense budgeting principle of balancing expenses and revenues. Unfortunately, the principle was abandoned, and now the demands of budget discipline apply only to spending.
As a result, tax breaks have not been paid for by reductions in Federal spending, and thus the only way to pay for them has been to increase our deficit to historically high levels and borrow more and more money. Now we have to pay for those tax breaks plus the cost of borrowing for them. Instead of reducing the deficit, as some people claimed, the fiscal policies of this administration and its allies in Congress will add more than $600 million in debt for each of the next 5 years.
That is why I will once again cosponsor the Pay-go amendment and continue to hope that my colleagues will return to a smart rule that has worked in the past and can work again.
Our debt also matters internationally. My friend, the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, likes to remind us that it took 42 Presidents 224 years to run up only $1 trillion of foreign-held debt. This administration did more than that in just 5 years. Now, there is nothing wrong with borrowing from foreign countries. But we must remember that the more we depend on foreign nations to lend us money, the more our economic security is tied to the whims of foreign leaders whose interests might not be aligned with ours.
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. Americans deserve better.
I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit”
Maybe Republicans would have a little more credibility right now if Ted Cruz had read that on the floor during his marathon fillabuster instead of Green Eggs and Ham.
Green Eggs and Ham is much more sophisticated prose than one of Obummer's speeches.
So he gets in office and does an about face. If this doesnt prove whoever is in the White House is just a puppet I dont know what the fuck will
Yes it is worth reading and is a eye opener.... this is the direct link to the government record of the transcript that Senator Obama's speech was taken from. I have found "redstate" quotes are not always accurate or in context...
THIS ONE SURE IS THOUGH!!!!!
that was then - this is now!
I love it!
Awesome. So we're done here with Boehner? Oh shit...I expected him to be consistent. What a dumb ass I am...spending is ok, so long as I'm doing it and not the other side. We got George the 43rd and now this buffoon. We're screwed...and it is exactly what most Americans deserve.
No Tree Left Behind: decorate 'em all with a politician...
hahahaha - I thought that this might be his new 'Monday' afternoon negotiating strategy.
In all fairness, he has amended his position.He started out as no negotiationsAnd is now at No negotiations until I get everything I want.
Which in truth means no negotiations except he is showing willingness to negotiate after he gets everything he wants and therefore needs no negotiations since he got everything he wanted without negotiations pre-negotiated. Sorta like I was for it until I was against it....
That scene from The Princess Bride again?
Gee. And I thought it was just a fun movie.
Does he not sign his name very often?
I betcha that Timmah's hand got real sore signing all them new $1's....Probably had trouble wanking for weeks.
Frequently on EO's.
Saying whatever's politically expedient, for the children - Barry O!
The phrase, "I intend to ________" is a politician's best friend.
Stay!! Thy Infidel hand!!
Yes, but increasing the debt limit does not increase the nation's debt. And deficits don't matter anyways.
Paul?Is that you, Paul?Paul!Come out come out wherever you are, Paul!
That's really his signature? geez
The man needs three strokes of a pen to make an O?
Probably used multiple pens to give out as gifts to his disciples...
