Pelosi To The Rescue!

The current debt ceiling/deficit debate going on is important to be sure.  I've been doing a lot of ranting and raving about it for days now.  I must thank the former speaker, however, for adding some much needed levity with the comment,
"What we’re trying to do is save the world from the Republican budget . . . We’re trying to save life on this planet as we know it today."
Oh, don't I wish!  I wonder if she has a clue how idiotic that sounds.  It's right up there with her comment when health care passed; she said we could then all read it and find out what was in it!  To think this woman is one of the most powerful in the country.

Oh well, a good belly laugh now and then is good for the soul.  Forget the flaws in the Republican plan - and the Democratic plan.  Or that neither side trusts the other to keep their word. The problem is where both parties have taken us with their unlimited spending spree.

Somehow I just don't see Nancy saving us from what she herself and others like her have done to the country.  Life as it is today isn't so great when you consider the unemployment rate, the housing crunch,  the cost of gas and food and the humility thrust upon us by the TSA to mention a few.

Do us a favor Ms. Pelosi.  Don't bother.  As for the rest of the world?  Do it a favor and leave it alone.  They've managed to muck things up for themselves just as well, if not better, than we have, but the last thing they need is our help.  It would be like someone with a face full of Botox being asked to furrow their brow!

It seems to me that most of the folks in Washington have lost their ability to reason.

And we have to remember that when Clinton left office, we had no deficit. This was all done on Bush's watch...the wars...all on his watch.

Well, Margie, the Democrats had the House and Senate for 4 years and they're the ones that didn't put forth a budget. You can't cut spending reasonably unless there is a budget to determine where the cuts should be. Isn't it time to quit blaming Bush and admit to Obama's shortcomings?

I admit to Obama's shortcomings, Mari, but Bush got us into these unwinnable wars and the financial mess happened on his watch.
