America Held Hostage

Even business groups are asking the government to raise the debt ceiling.

    The Republicans are making America play Russian Roulette with bullets in every chamber. Not raising the debt celing would be disasterous and take years to repair, if it is even possible.

    I applaud the President for realizing the stakes and gambling that any short term idiocy required to get passage of the increases can be repaired in 2013 after the Republicans get thrown out again (if that can happen). It is a gamble, but failing to raise the debt ceiling is not a gamble – it is 100% disasterous.

    I don’t know that Repugnicans want ‘America’ to fail, but they’ve made it VERY clear that they want Obama to fail.
    I guess if it’s at the expense of ‘America’, that’s alright with them.

    Guy, I remember when you first showed up a while back, sounding like a troll spouting Republican talking points. Then you mellowed out for a while, and you were actually making some decent points and contributing to the conversation. Then you vanished for a while (watching too much Fox News again?). And now you are back, dropping turds all over the place again.

    It is too bad. You can be an intelligent, thoughtful person. But if you keep doing this, nobody in this forum will take you seriously. Go drop turds somewhere else.
