No votes yet

came from one of my Facebook friends. I don't think she would mind if I shared them with you......

Actually, I thought the president came off as rather petulant, a transparent attempt at Hollywood stagecraft.

Not that the Republicans are innocent either but it's sad that at a time where we need statesmen to step up and actually make the hard decisions to get the deficit under control and bring the debt down, we get bad Kabuki Theater.

Political Championship Wrestling- putting politics in proper perspective by presenting it as pro wrestling.

Coming in January, a political satire about the sorry state of American Politics- Jesusland vs. Progressiveville.

I don't think you or your friend understand half of what you read. In fact, I believe you, like wolfman, have only read the headlines.

How is Murdoch going down? I will be willing to bet Murdoch ends up making more money after he sells off the newspapers because newspapers lose money.

As for the President he's going to lose out big time on the debt ceiling. Either he will permit 2.4 trillion in cuts without tax raises or he will get a 1.5 trillion deal with a looming debt ceiling vote right before the election. Neither get him any political capital. These are the choices because the House of Representatives won't pass anything that raises taxes and are standing firm on that.

And AH is right. The President looked childish storming out. We expect our leaders to lead and make tough decisions to find compromise. You can't find a compromise when one side storms out of a meeting. Being that the President SHOULD have been involved in the debt ceiling discussion months ago but instead went on vacation he will have to face voters who are not happy about the debt ceiling being raised without cuts AND he's now threatening to take away Grandma's Social Security check. I'm sure those will get him votes.
