I just forced myself to watch President Obama's remarks on the debt crisis (and I don't even get paid to do so!!). Not once during the entire speech did he look directly into the camera and into the eyes of the American People. He also took absolutely no blame for the mess we're in, but instead did his normal "it wasn't my fault" line where he blamed everyone else, and specifically people like you and me (you know - Americans) who are just sick of this mess. It is time for the President, the Vice-President, and the leaders of the Senate and House to all resign, and take the rest of the bilge with them.
I am beginning to be concerned that the Republic can be saved. Last year we voted for people who swore they'd change the way Washington does business. Now, it's looking like we're going to compromise at some point on a plan to raise the debt ceiling by - get this - not increasing the spending as fast next year. What? What happened to actual cuts? This is totally unacceptable! This whole debt-ceiling argument is a bogus argument in the first place. Not raising the debt-ceiling forces spending reductions - it's as simple as that! But, the current crop, even with the landslide last year, can't seem to make that point!!!
