I guess you could say that Moses was kind of a community organizer.

Oh King Obama, you don’t need to sign the bill. Just pass your hand over it and it becomes the law of the land. Another four years.

Senator OWEbama 2006. My how times have changed.

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 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.

Over the past 5 years, our federal debt has increased by $3.5 trillion to $8.6 trillion. That is “trillion” with a “T.” That is money that we have borrowed from the Social Security trust fund, borrowed from China and Japan, borrowed from American taxpayers. And over the next 5 years, between now and 2011, the President’s budget will increase the debt by almost another $3.5 trillion.

OWEbama sure doesn’t worry about running up his record breaking multi year Trillion “with a T” deficits anymore now does he?

It seems your politicians in the US are as useless and lie as much as the sniveling crooks we get in the UK!
