I Completely Agree with Barack Obama on the Debt Ceiling

“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.”
Barack Obama March 20, 2006

One Response to I Completely Agree with Barack Obama on the Debt Ceiling

    He is an idiot and only states the obvious. Our dependence on foreign economies is ridiculous! There is no reason we should not take charge of our own destiny by way of distancing ourselves from the rest of the world and taking care of our own. We must get back to constitutional ideals and stop letting a Muslim run our country! We have the natural resources that will enable us to do that very thing right here. To hell with a bunch of import too. Vote for him again and be ready to realize a Germany that Hitler ran!
