    Keeping hope alive

    Keeping hope alive

    Isn’t that what this all is about at this moment in time?

    We just have to last another 18 months and win the presidential election, and then our long national nightmare will come to an end.  Until then, we’re just trying to limit the damage.

    Until he put forth his “plan,” Mitch McConnell was on the right track

    You can’t make a “big deal” with this President and this Senate.  The best you can do is limit the damage done by the (Nancy)-Harry-Barack tag team.

    McConnell’s plan wasn’t damage control; to the contrary, it made Republicans participants in the continuing damage. 

    There is a way out, spending constraints short of an overhaul of entitlements and no tax increases.  At the end of the day, Obama will have to take it. 

    And if he doesn’t, the damage is on him.

    President Obama abruptly walks out of talks

    “President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of a stormy debt-limit meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday, a dramatic setback to the already shaky negotiations, according to GOP sources.

    “He shoved back and said ‘I’ll see you tomorrow’ and walked out,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told reporters in the Capitol after the meeting.”

    Pollutico

    According to Michelle Bachmann a couple of minutes ago on Fox, paying the interest on our debt represents about 10% of all INCOMING REVENUES (not total expenditures) so default is not an immediate risk. And if we pay the interest on our debt, we don’t risk being downgraded by the bond rating agencies.

    Then why is the entire GOP leadership adamant about the need to raise the debt ceiling? Let’s not and see what happens. And by the way, how about killing ObamaCare as one of the cuts in spending?
