Balanced the budget we mean, and they would have the word and the work out, if the very important senator from New York, had allowed the TPs to prove their abilities in matters of money and the economy:


The TPs Balance The Budget — While Congress Runs Amuck


No, you do not need a permit or license to “run a muck.”  Just get elected to high public office and do your thing to deceive those you are to represent.


While everything wrong about the budget and spending solutions are blamed on the Tea Party,  it seems they are the only ones able to come up with solutions.

Either these two reporters (ELIZA LARSON AND SARAH PARNASS} can’t count or they are a tad gimmicky in their own right.  The two, reporting for ABCNewsPolitics have titled their article, Top Six Washington Budget Gimmicks — Reading Between The Lines,  yet they continue and list 7 rather than stopping their count at six.

While I am sure there is a hidden clue contained in their list of seven,  I will jump out of that contest and just recommend reading their list.  While they may not be entirely correct in their tolling of what is best or even close to best, your bound to be able to discern how real journalist think … or fail to think.

Here’s the link to their list.  See what you come up with.

Who’d Thunk It — Ever

Well, to hear POTUS squeal like a pig in a gate about the repubs not wanting to raise the debt limit, you might just think that he has always favored the tactic, i.e raising the debt limit.

Apparently you’d be thinking and believing wrong if you bought into that belief.  More than a few magazine articles and blog post to an entirely different attitude or belief system on the part of our President just a few short years ago.  Information from the National Review Online contained in an article by Katrina Trinko, found here, points to the opposite.  But, that was then and this is on a different watch. What do we read now, or more precisely on January 3, 2011 about POTUS as a senator in 2006:

Here are Obama’s thoughts on the debt limit in 2006, when he voted against increasing the ceiling:

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. … 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.

One might think POTUS sounded very conservative back then, but the conservatives have seen debt limit raises that they could vote for.  We won’t stray from the path we are on because we really wanted to think about who’d thunk it about our current president.

What I really want to know — will the Republicans cave or will they save by not raising the debt limit?  Look for related links below.
