Yesterday, Michelle Malkin wrote about Sen. Mitch McConnell’s debt ceiling proposal.

If you’re not familiar with what McConnell proposed, click the above link — but as far as I’m concerned, this is all you really need to know about it:

Not surprisingly, the proposal has received a warm reception from Democratic leaders. Harry Reid said Tuesday that he was open to considering it. White House spokesman Jay Carney said that the McConnell proposal means “defaulting on America’s past due bills is not an option.” And two sources familiar with the discussions at the White House Tuesday afternoon said that Nancy Pelosi offered McConnell “congratulations.”

Yikes.

    This makes big game hunting for RINOs all the more attractive.

    "White House spokesman Jay Carney said that the McConnell proposal means “defaulting on America’s past due bills is not an option.”

    Sure it is Jay ( we're broke ) Holders of our DEBT know that. It's not like it was a secret. Question is, how will DC handle this? Admit their half-prenant socialist leaning policies have failed and bite the bullet?

    Or ( as usual ) dump it on the backs of the American Worker and then tell us you're doing it for our own good? Interesting side history note and genuine Tea Party advantage here folks:

    Eldest daughter pointed out that during The Depression, our little OR town issued it's own 'currency'. Basically it was "script". All across Rural America ( read Non-Blue states ) we'll get along just fine! Stores will set up tabs, and… once DC pulls their heads OOTA's, ledgers will be reconciled. Not pleasant but doable.

    Prog-infested major metros? Good luck!

    And where is the SS Lock Box? Dick Obama says checks may not go out. Well, why the hell not? So, his high paid staff and shit heads that work on Capitol Hill including Congress will get paid but retirees and soldiers will not. More scare tactics and lies from Dick Obama to force RINOs to tow the line. SICKENING!!!

    Mitch. After you said that you didn't think a real deal was possible as long as Obeyme was in the Whitehouse, you should have stopped talking. Here's some advice: Let Marco Rubio do your talking for you.

    Granny,

    As MM would say; Bring.It.On Those of us in the pvt. sector have been getting our fannies handed to us in a lunch sack. Our Property Taxes have been tweaked to either show a fluffed up appraisal ( or amp'd up Millage Rate? ) to cover local folly and NONE of us got a DIME in Porkulus $'s!?

    Oh… me so scared..! Whatever will we DO..? I've been waiting for my Nat. Guard checks to either bounce or reflect "shared sacrifice" for some TIME now! Bring that on too. I'll keep showing up and pack a lunch. ( Read your Enlistment Contract! )

    Giving the Dick Oblunder carte blanche to raise the debt ceiling at will by EO for the remainder of his (first) term is beyond ludicrous and laughingly stupid. Can you imagine the cram-downs Dick will do after the `12 elections as it is ? Giving him 15 MORE months to do as he pleases ……..unthinkable……..unspeakable in it`s danger !

    Someone at MM`s said, "it may be a ploy, but it`s a baaaaad one" ! Baaaaad is an understatement !

    Anymore "chills up his legs" and Chrissy Tingles' Depends will explode a la Mr Pissydraws Himself Olberman.

    Over at Potluck ( potluckbloggers.wordpress.com ) Zilla has a post about "Obama tries blackmail ….", commenter "just a conservative girl" believes this is actually a brilliant move by McConnell. It will force Obozo to get real about his spending and force the dems to take all the blame, etc., etc. ! Go and read it yourself so I don`t fowl up the explanation even worse ! She may be right ! Or she may be having an "Optimystigism" !
