The GOP's racism has driven them mad
The debt ceiling has never been an issue before and the only reason it is an issue now is because the repugs let loose their core racist beliefs when they unleashed the teabaggers. They are now willing to fuck over the country in the belief it will make a black man look bad.
Well then, I guess that means Obama's a racist too.
March 20, 2006: Floor speech by Senator Barak Obama:
http://www.democraticunderground.com...ss=439x1582849The 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 U.S. Government can’t 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.
