Obama now regrets his 2006 vote against raising the debt ceiling when Bush was President. Imagine that.
Obama in 2006
The fact that we're here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. Leadership means '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
Looks like we have a continuing failure in leadership.
So Obama has changed his mind on GITMO, Military tribunals, The President can act to go to war without congress, The Patriot act and do not forget he is for deficit reduction while asking for a 1.6 trillion debt budget. Do not forget his transparency pledge along with his attacks on special interest while protecting his own special interests the unions. There was also the meeting with rogue leaders instead of bombing them but as we see with Libya that was also a little mistake on his part. The regrets and lies just keep piling up with this administration. At the verry least he could do is admit that maybe Bush was right on some of these subjects.
We need a balanced budget next year as the price to pay for the limit going up. But I realise tha the tanned crying man Boehner does not have a set and will bucklee and cave on this issue to. Maybe he can go down the hall to Representaive Bachman's office and borrow hers.
