You just have to marvel at the liberals. Since 2006, they have meticulously been laying their IED’s within their own spending legislation. Now that the chickens (literally) have come home to roost, they are comically trying to dodge the shrapnel of their own making by firing off salvos of their patented crapnel to anyone within earshot..
According to Politico (Dems seek cover to boost debt limit 10/22/09) “the Senate must soon increase the national debt limit above $13 trillion..” I suppose that it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that that total is one trillion dollars ABOVE the limit that the liberals set for themselves when they were conning the country back in February relative to their “economic stimulus package”.. When a liberal shows up with any kind of “package” designed to “help” from their dystrophic brand of government, I would advise that before you open it that you should listen for the ticking..
In yet another surprise liberal move, they are “considering” attaching their Obama-made debt increase to “a must-pass bill”, namely defense spending. The opportunity for the disingenuous Demokrats, the “we support the troops when it appears to be politically expedient” crowd to attach an intentionally malicious maneuver to such important legislation as military spending during a time of war is totally within their lack of character. Not only do they want to cover their own cowardly tracks relative to their deficits and debts, they want to force the Republicans to vote against the legislation initially written to provide funding for the troops on the front line.
Put yourself into fascist forward thinking mode. Why not make these debts and their amorphous “ceilings” more like twenty trillion? The numbers are of no concern to their voting base because the overwhelming majority of them aren’t employed and therefore they pay virtually nothing in taxes while siphoning off revenues to beat the band. The hard part for the mathematically challenged savants of the left (just look at their tax returns..) is the possibility of trying to get ahead of the impressive debt machine known as the Obama administration. The pinkos are in a four corner stall in the hopes that they can bury this number whatever it ends up being, that way they never have to “discuss” the matter until AFTER 2010.. That being the case, the leftists had better shoot for 100 trillion..
The Senate now sits in the crosshairs. “Unlike the House, the Senate’s rules do not allow it to automatically increase the debt..” Here is where it really gets humorous, “if the Senate balks at the increase, Treasury Secretary Geithner has warned that the slow economic recovery could collapse..” The liberals “blame someone else” political foundation now causes them to blame themselves.. Just as long as the Dark Knight doesn’t take the heat and just as long as they can create a diversionary excuse for the problems that they have created..
Never fear, liberal heroes/zeroes still have the moronic mantra at the ready.. “This president inherited, in some ways, an economic fiasco” said conservative (WHAT??) Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu..” “Conservative”? If she is a conservative then Michael Moore is a marathon runner and Keith Olberwomann is an intellectual.. Here even the LIBERAL Landrieu leaves herself the “out” that all liberals need in order to function, “..in some ways..” The NATION has inherited this “fiasco” firstly from a liberal House and Senate responsible for years and years of out of control spending and now add to that communist concoction the Illinois Bolshevik as we salt to distaste.. Landrieu just wants to be able to point to anybody else once her seat at the trough comes up for consideration by the voters of Louisiana..
For the last time, lets assume that the liberal bleating about “what they have inherited” is even remotely true.. What has the Democratic House and Senate done to alleviate this problem? They have only had since 2006 to actually do something about it.. What did the 143-day wonder himself do about this issue? What did the Secretary of Statists do during that time? What did Vodka Joe do? THEY are personally responsible for creating, enabling and magnifying the “problem” that they now try to identify as something that they “inherited”.. Being that the average liberal family tree goes straight up, the only thing that the majority of them have “inherited” is a propensity towards extra fingers and toes..
Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus (L-Mont) when asked about the possibility of adding to the already impressive Obama debt increase said, “oh yeah, it’s a possibility..” The icing on the communist cake was his follow up to that blithe comment, “I care less how it’s done so long as it is done..” The short sighted liberals and their “ends justifies the means” would rather saddle generations to come with the responsibility for their irresponsibility as “long as it is done”.. Hearkening back to and borrowing from another liberal loser, I suppose that depends what the definition of “it” is.. This “it” that Baucus is referring to is of incredible importance. Based upon their actions and inactions, this “it” seems to be the “Destroy America First” platform of Obama and the liberal marionettes.
Even Evan Bayh from Indiana said that he wouldn’t support ANOTHER INCREASE “unless there’s some mechanism to start getting the deficit under control..” Aside from the fact that Bayh needs ANOTHER INCREASE and maybe THEN he will want some kind of “control”, I can think of two things to help Evan. Impeachment proceedings and then the mid term election of 2010. The voters had better do this because the liberals themselves are so addicted to taxing and spending irrationally and illogically that all of the intervention programs, patches and hypnotists available in the country would be useless and ineffective at stopping the deviant behavior..
Jim Manley (candidate for the most illogical last name held by a sniveling liberal..) communications advisor to Harry Reid when cornered about the “long-term fiscal challenges” said, “Those discussions are ongoing, and the administration is evaluating what they may want to recommend..” What that means is, “until they find something or someone tangible to blame this on..” What happened to the Obama “hurry up and vote” nonsense during the bailout and stimulus debacles? Why the need to “evaluate” unless they are waiting for another “balloon boy” diversion or maybe another “liberal lion” to pass away in order to surreptitiously skulk in unnoticed?
Even Olympia Snowe(job) (L-Ma) said that she was “uncertain how she’d vote on a debt limit increase..” “You absolutely have to make government run..” she said. Dear Olympia, Obama and his socialist puppets are making the government “run” into a ravine. As a “Republican” (allegedly), please try not to assist them in this embarrassing endeavor any more than you have to..
