Once Again Media Give Obama a Pass: this time on Debt Ceiling Hypocrisy

President Obama has taken an admirable stand for fiscal austerity, and blasted attempts to yet again raise the debt ceiling, which currently stands at $14.3 trillion (with a T) - or roughly the GDP of the United States. Said the president:

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.

Just kidding. That

  • The media has been giving this loser of a president a pass since before he was elected. there is going to be some REAL spending cuts now and the dumb-o-crats better get used to them.

    • ah...well..i wouldn't hold your breath. i've come to expect that one party will vote against and bitch about the other, then turn around and do the same damn thing when they're in control. the only way we will get this in control is when we elect a true fiscal conservative like ron paul as president. but sadly, the MSM will stifle and make that person look like a kook, and the sheeple who care more about muff cabbage on jersey shore will gobble it all up.

  • " That was Senator Obama in 2006, when debt was apparently a far larger problem - even though the ceiling was only(!) $9 trillion at the time."

    Yeah before we found out that the Bush admin was asleep at the switch, and let the unregulated banks hose the economy.

    Someone had to try and fix the mess.

    Of course a trillion of our current debt is Bush's bailout of banker CEO bonueses. A trillion of Obama's was to bail out the rest of us.

    Ooooooooo that villan Obama!

    • lol...you have no idea what your talking about. Just wait till Ron Paul does an audit of the Federal Reserve's actions UNDER Bush and Obama. You think it was only Booooosh that caters to big bankers/lobbyist and wall street? You seriously think that Obama's "stimulus" was nothing more then a pay out to the labor unions, Goldman Sachs etc...? Obama is just continuing the Bush era Bullsheite.

      Take your blinders off Drenigma...
