Remember Who Said This?

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

It’s also true that there are some who get involved in politics because they see corruption and want to change things. Unfortunately they are wet behind the ears and naive and that’s where Obama was back in 2006. They mean well and are well intentioned but they haven’t been there, done it… Read more »

I don’t think Obama’s intentions have really changed since 2006. His voting record throughout his career speaks for itself. I’m not sure that you can survive to that high of a level in politics either with altruistic intentions.
