… yeah kind of like their vote for Obama as President… was a mistake.
Here a just a few of the Democrats that flip-flopped on raising the debt ceiling – wrong thing to do under Bush but now it is responsible government under Obama…
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer has joined President Obama in conceding that he blundered by voting against an increase to the government’s debt ceiling.
“I have voted against the debt limit in the past. That was a mistake,” Hoyer (Md.), the second-ranking House Democrat, said in an unprompted admission to reporters on Tuesday.
National Republican Senatorial Committee attacked Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who voted against raising the ceiling in 2007, for “flip-flopping” on the issue when she called Republicans “profoundly irresponsible” for threatening to do the same thing.
In the Senate, a spokesman for Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Reid has previously stated that he “believes he should have voted differently.”
Assistant Democratic Leader James Clyburn (S.C.) said through a spokeswoman: “My vote was in protest of Bush’s unwise and obscene tax cuts. The circumstances today are entirely different.”
Obama voted against raising the debt ceiling as an Illinois senator in 2006.
But they weren’t playing politics in 2006 and 2007 oh no but you can bet your ass if the Republicans vote against the debt ceiling now it will be because they are divisive, partisan, want grandma to starve and children will die – I’m so sick of them I can’t even find humor in it.
Let me just call the democrats what they are… hypocritical liars.
Frankly, I don’t want the debt ceiling raised regardless of who is in the White House – you live within your means – period. It’s what average American have to do – live within their means…
Oh here is the raising the of the debt ceiling since WWII -
