As a senator Obama voted against every increase in the debt ceiling because of his extreme partisan politics, but now thinks there should be no debt ceiling. Go figure.

Why not just stop the deficit spending than we would not have to worry about the debt ceiling. Dahhhhhhhhh.

it's just one step in a broader effort to boost the economy and shrink federal deficits. - The first step is stopping the run away wreckless spending. I guess that doesn't compute to our great and illustrious leader.

Silly Obama voters. You really never expected him to address his insane spending, did you? Obama will bankrupt America, and you people will be just as responsible for re-electing this disaster. Anyone happen to notice team Obama's year 5 deficit is expected to be around 1.4 trillion dollars? I get a kick out of the fools who blamed anyone but Obama for HIS poor results and the massive debt. We take in about 3 billion dollars a day, yet we spend about 11 billion per day. What the hell did you think would happen? You asked for it, and you are going to get what you asked for. Too bad you didn't take the time to educate yourselves before re-electing this fool.

Obama is no fool. He knows there are more than enough uninformed, gullible, live off-of the taxes paid by others liberals out there to support his every move and blame the House or the Bush Administration (not the Senate, because it has a democrat majority) for everything that has or will go wrong. Need proof? Take a look at the thumbs down on any comments in any postings against the community organizer. They could write that this empty suit stepped out on his wife and they would still be praying at the alter of obama. More proof needed? Look how they adored Clinton, the Kennedys, Gary Hart, John edwards, et. al. It has nothing to do with their abilities, character, or leadership. They are worshipped because they are democrats and provide taxpayer monies to their supporters!

Mr.Obama need I remind you.........

"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........I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt limit." ... BH Obama March 2006
