We knew this was coming. But like Vice President Pluggers always says, ya gotta spend money to keep from going bankrupt.

From the Washington Post:

President Barack Obama asked Congress Thursday for another $1.2 trillion increase in the nation’s debt limit, a request that is largely a formality but which carries election-year implications.

Congress has 15 days to reject the president’s request. Majority House Republicans, eager to criticize the president’s spending policies, immediately announced they would hold a vote next week on a resolution of disapproval.

It was the third and final such request the president was allowed under a deal the White House reached with lawmakers in August to prevent a government default.

Adding as much debt as Obama has is just plain unpatriotic. But don’t take my word for it:

    And of course the reason we have to talk about it again is the clueless congresscretin didn't have the guts, brains or nads to deal with this before the break, so here it sits and stinks and festers.

    Is there any chance of bringing back "drawing and quartering" or, say, "keelhauling" for traitorous congress cretin. Seems like that would at least make them think twice b4 putting the screws to us. Just a thot… a rather viceral, pleasant… oh never mind.

    What amazes me is he asked for the increase with a poker straight face!

    Of course. The only time liberals believe this country doesn't have an unlimited amount of money for the government to spend is when Republicans are in charge.

    Why not ? He thinks he can pull it off and little or nothing has happened to cause him doubts !

    Were the vid from an R, it would be worn out to skipping by now by the LSM, but since Oblamer said it, it`s just our own proof that whatever he says comes with an expiration date ! In this case, that date was late in January, 2009 when TehOneHe`sBeenWaitingFor was immaculated !

    Why do I get the feeling he's asking us to pull his finger?

  7. SignPainterGuy on January 12th, 2012 9:24 pm

    I like the keel-hauling option; it wasn`t always fatal and left open the possibility of future punishment !

  8. SignPainterGuy on January 12th, 2012 9:32 pm

    Could it be because that`s the level of lame trick we feel he would try to pull ?

    I wonder how Obama manages to raise so much money if there are so many people/companies who have been hurt by his policies? How can any company donate to an administration who blames them every step of the way? Maybe I just don't understand politics…

    As do I. One of MM's posters, a dentist in Beaverton, OR said he had this patient. A local contractor and real Obamabot going into '08. Always had insurance, always covered the co-pays, ded. etc.

    Two years into teh wun's pResidency and the guy comes in w/ a terrible toothache. Only now he has NO insurance and can't even cover the co-pay! After years of having to listen to "how He will fundamentally change this country" the good doc took pity on him and fixed his tooth for free.

    Cuzz' all Conservatives are @-holes you know? Well.., 'whom' should this contractor be supporting THIS election? I'm sure we can all think of examples. Big and small.

    A hedge fund is a private investment fund open only to sophisticated investors. Depending on the type of the fund, the investor needs to fulfill the requirement of “accredited investor” or “qualified client.” In most states, hedge funds are not required to register with the Securities and Exchange Commission and are therefore often regarded as “secretive” or “unregulated.
