it's twisted logic. the reality is, the only reason for raising the debt ceiling is to borrow more so bills can be paid but raising the debt ceiling
doesn't mean you have to borrow more. It only means you can.
However, in the 100 previous ceiling raises that he mentions, there was increased borrowing which is increased debt. I think he, and his writers,
figure they can say whatever they want. He seems to do this alarmingly more often and he's having it backfire.
He, and his crew of bumbling oafs, did this with Syria and Russia jumped on it and wound up out politicking him to the point that he now seems useless
regarding foreign politics.
A smart republican will seize these comments and say "ok, then, if it doesn't mean you want to increase the debt, then don't raise the
That will be the end of that.
These guys are destroying the country. They are, to a man, morons. There's not a single politician worth keeping. These guys are given way too
much and they produce way too little.
One thing that I have seen over the years is that lawyers are, generally speaking, very good at being lawyers. Not all but, for the most part, they
are. Doctors are very good at being doctors. Electricians are good at being electricians and so on.
When you need your books balanced, and you need help figuring out your finances, and you need to figure out how to handle the insurmountable debt, do
you call a lawyer? Not unless you're filing for bankruptcy. Do you call a doctor? Only if your bills make you sick.
Nope. you call an accountant. These guys are not equipped to deal with this and they are making decisions that they shouldn't be making.
I wouldn't begin to try and write laws or dictate how we should handle overseas isssues like Syria. I'll voice my opinion but, if you tell me the
decision is mine to make, I'm calling in some generals, some folks with real war experience. I'm getting second and third opinions.
If I'm getting chest pains, I'm calling a doctor, not a lawyer.
These guys are equipped to do one thing. Argue.
That's it. That's all they're good for and they're fairly good at it but right now we need accountants who can find ways out of the ever
deepening hole we're in. We need some quality advice from bankers and investment gurus who can advise us on where things are headed in various
markets. We need to know where we can make up some of the slack and where we can cut the fat, starting with top gov't salaries.
Lastly, we need quality leadership. Someone who will stand up and say "I don't care about the party. I don't care about stupid crap that has no
bearing on our society, I care about our country, our safety and, most of all, our economy." Without that, we won't make it to the end of this
