Most American support Obama’s position on the debt ceiling

Thanks to the support of the Media-Entertainment Industrial complex, most Americans agree with Obama on raising the debt ceiling.

President Obama heads into his second term with political momentum on his side, and leads congressional Republicans when it comes to dealing with the country’s debt limit according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

More Americans now approve of the way Obama is doing his job than at any point in the past three years, except for a fleeting spike upward after the killing of Osama bin Laden. The number seeing him as a “strong leader” is sharply higher, and a clear majority again sees him as empathetic with the problems they face.


Nearly half of Republicans also take the president’s side when it comes to one important aspect of the intense debate over the nation’s debt limit: that the issue of raising the borrowing limit should be separate from the identification of spending cuts.

Republican leaders in Congress have drawn a hard line that such cuts are essential to any legislative deal to raise the debt ceiling. Republicans in the poll, however, are divided on the issue: 48 percent say any increase in the debt limit should be tied to cuts, while nearly as many, 45 percent, say that the two issues should be isolated, discrete issues.

The general public sides with Obama on this question: 58 percent say cuts should be a separate matter, and 36 percent say they should be knotted with the borrowing limit. Obama also has the trust edge here: 49 percent say they have more confidence in him to handle the issue, compared with 35 percent who put more faith in the GOP.

If the GOP can’t even convince Americans that raising the debt ceiling without cuts is irresponsible, there is no point in them existing as a party.. The US is now a 3rd world style Fascist style one party dictatorship.

    If you keep raising a debt ceiling, it isn’t a ceiling – it’s an illusion.

    New Debt Ceilings are a New Spending Floor
    —apologies to Paul Simon, and “One Man’s Ceiling is Another Man’s Floor”

    There is a debt ceiling here
    Because we’re deeply in the red
    And there’s some hard feeling on
    The Congress floors
    Because the Tea Party oppose
    What the Democrats propose
    To raise taxes and to spend a lot more
    It’s just those no-budget blues
    And when you spend without rules
    A raised debt ceiling
    Is a new spending floor
    A raised debt ceiling
    Is a new spending floor

    Where did the Stimulus go?
    Don’t you ask the CBO
    No shovel-ready jobs materialized
    They say that the economy
    Has had a big recovery
    But instead I believe my own eyes
    They want to savage defense
    And bloat up entitlements
    Remember new debt ceilings
    Are a new spending floor
    New debt ceilings
    Are a new spending floor

    But the economy could be rebuilding
    If Congress would just reshuffle the game
    Stop spending more than it makes
    No matter how much it takes
    Regulatory agencies must be tamed

    [Instrumental interlude]

    New debt ceilings are a new spending floor
    You bet
    New debt ceilings are a new spending floor…

    [Instrumental fadeout]

    I think we’ve already established the fact that the majority of Americans are idiots, so this comes as no surprise.

    Have to start measuring dollars and how responsible each one is. lots of reports about poverty in the US. But how many of those people are poverty slaves to the Democratic party. No hope of getting past the rules. It is in their interest to evolve into a permanent gimme class.

    There never would have been a housing bubble if Americans had any sense at all. America is going broke because of the stupid.
