Sarah Palin Shows Her Stupidity Once Again: Obama Risking “Impeachment” Over Debt Ceiling

palin-idiotIf I hear the word “impeachment” from any of these knuckle-dragging Republicans one more time, I really might just lose it.  It’s like the “go-to” move for conservatives whenever a Democrat is in the White House.  It seems like the very moment Barack Obama was elected President of the United States in 2008, Republicans just started shouting, “Impeachment!” any time something’s going on in Washington.

Sarah Palin chimed in with her “insightful words of wisdom” by writing that President Obama is flirting with impeachment because of his actions concerning the debt ceiling.

Let me just go ahead and show you her exact statement, then I’ll proceed to explain why she’s an absolute idiot:

“Defaulting on our national debt is an impeachable offense, and any attempt by President Obama to unilaterally raise the debt limit without Congress is also an impeachable offense.”

So basically, if President Obama doesn’t allow Republicans to blackmail him and give in to their demands on the debt ceiling, and we default—that’s impeachable.  But if he tries to use our Constitution to raise the debt ceiling without Congress, that too is an impeachable offense.

But what if the House refuses to raise the debt ceiling?  Does that then mean they can all be removed from their seats in the House of Representatives?

I love how her comments put all the blame on President Obama.  If Republicans don’t raise the debt ceiling, and we default, it’s something that could cause Obama (in her warped mind) to face impeachment.  Yet, if President Obama tries to use our Constitution to bypass an obstructive Congress and keep our nation from defaulting on its debts (something she just claimed is an impeachable offense) then that too is grounds for impeachment.

Basically, using her “logic,” default is an impeachable offense and bypassing Congress to avoid default is an impeachable offense.

In other words—she’s a moron.

She also went on to say that we won’t default by repeating the ridiculous right-wing talking point that we can simply pay our interest and avoid actually defaulting on our debts.

An idea that’s been dismissed by the Secretary of the Treasury and just about every respected economist the world over.  The only people really buying into that plan are far-right tea party Republicans.

You know, many of the same people who believe the earth is 6,000 years old, climate change is a hoax, dinosaurs and man roamed the Garden of Eden together, evolution is a lie, Obama forged 2 forms of his birth certificate and he somehow caused an economic collapse before he even became president.

So I apologize if I don’t take their “economic expertise” seriously.  Wait, I don’t apologize for that.  These people are batshit crazy.  I wouldn’t trust most of them to watch my dog for an hour let alone give me any kind of economic advice.

And while I know some will say, “Why give this twit any attention?” I just have to remind those people that, as much as I loathe the woman, she still has an impact on the Republican party.  As long as the tea party has influence (which it obviously does considering Ted Cruz has been the de facto Speaker of the House as of late) Sarah Palin will unfortunately have influence on what these radicals think and believe.

But I’ll also remind these people that we should want individuals like Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz and Michele Bachmann to be the face of the Republican party.  The more they steal the headlines, the more the GOP as a whole looks like a bunch of fools.

And if you want to truly define the world “fool,” you don’t need to look any further than Sarah Palin.

        hard to cheat when there’s always room for three in our bed.

      • Desstrat

        And where would that be? (curious much)

      • Independent

        Seriously? I don’t know why any of us with measurable intelligence are even arguing with this “independAnt” guy. I mean, I’m usually not one to harp on spelling errors but… he can’t even spell INDEPENDENT! There is no A in INDEPENDENT! And the dumbfuck made it his screen name! And I chose the actual spelling of the word as my screen name in order to show that the name was a valid and available choice and this guy is simply retarded. If this is the depth of thought that goes into the shit that comes out of his mouth, it’s not worth wasting the breath of us with brains. Also, that was an awesome burn, ARealHousewifeInOC !!!

      • Judith_Priest

        Hi, Lourdes!

    • Sarah

      Her surgically-tightened skin will direct it right back at you. Win, win.

  • FactoryGuy

    What I keep wondering is if she and Cruz and Lee and all the other idiots are so proud of their strategy, then why don’t they own it? Why do they keep trying to deflect the responsibility to the President and Demos?

    • Lee Erickson

      Hey, keep me out of this!

  • jWd

    I hope she wastes millions on a senate campaign

  • Kenneth Cowles

    Cruz and Palin need to run only on a Tea Party ticket for President and Vice, they they could display their stupity together every where.

    • bigsmarts

      don’t leave Michelle Bachman (sp?) out of this brain trust. I have to be careful about watching her speak, as i’ve had a stroke in the past and can’t afford to have her absorb what brains i have left into her pointy little head.

    • William Carr

      OMG. That’s BRILLIANT !

      They’d lose SO bad… but they’d pull votes away from the GOP at the same time.

  • Lisa

    I don’t think my hands can take all the bitch slapping I want to do to those Moron Republicans!

    • independant

      Good idea, how would you handle that food stamp card?

      • Sarah

        Typical freeloading Teabagger, always inappropriately inquiring about their own food stamp card…

      • B.David

        Typical freeloading libtard, always inappropriately inquiring about their own food stamp card… FYI, The Tea Party is demographically very diverse. The Tea Party stands for a Constitutional government, NOT the talking head diarrhea that you people regurgitate here. Do a little homework, get an education, a REAL one, educated people join the Republican Party, THEN, if you can understand the principles of a free market economy, and a limited government, you will be allowed to join the Tea Party.

      • melloe

        I call em Tea Turds, because of the damage they have done to the country and what they have shown they want to do. Constitutional Government? You have to be kidding , they trample all over the constitution and Law. They get lost when trying to tlak about anything beyond the second amendment, and screw that up.

      • William Carr

        Their idea of “Constitutional Government” is to re-interpret the Constitution to imply the Federal Government has no authority.

        Tenthers, Birthers, Truthers… it’s a wave of Stupid.

      • Milton D Beattie

        No, You call em Tea Turds because you don’t have a rational thought to offer and your mind is a toxic waste dump.
        Or else some reason would come out of it not toxic abuse with no connection to and offense.

      • Nay KnowledgeisPower White

        The tea party…also known to all as the Ku Klux Klan

      • Milton D Beattie

        You are one deluded egg aren’t you.

        Guess what variety of people freed the Black people guaranteed them Equal rights to bear arms and Spilled their Blood Fighting Democrat retards that wanted to keep blacks as slaves. The same folk as the Tea Baggers.

        I can’t believe how deluded some folk are.

      • William Carr

        Oh, please. Diverse ?

        We’ve SEEN the Tea Party Rallies. White, 40+, more men than women.

        You’re obviously desperate to be taken seriously, but we have EYES, man.

  • Daniel Moore

    What I am looking forward to the most is all the quasi-normal moderate Republicans that will lose their jobs/seats because of the actions of the bat S%$# crazy ones on the fringe! Bye-Bye House majority!

    • independant

      Dream on Danny Boy. Pelosi as speaker again? Now that is stupid. You must be a DEM. Go smoke another one.

      • Daniel Moore

        Proud to be a Democrat. Unlike you Republicans who are Independent when asked. And get used to Speaker Pelosi becaus you Jack asses way overestimated your clout. See ya later vapor.

      • William Carr

        It’s going to be HILARIOUS when the GOP loses the House over this stunt !

        Pelosi will walk back up to the Speaker’s Podium, to a round of applause from Democrats and strangled cries of hatred from the few remaining Conservatives.

        We need 17 Seats, and as of this week, 25 Republican Seats in the House are in Jeopardy.

      • TeaScum

        Go smoke another leather cigar, TeaTard

  • Manassa

    Tthe only reason that they listen to her is because she is “eye candy” for the Republican party. If she wasn’t so, they would tune her out. Sad, but true!
    Same applies to Michelle Bachman!

    • gemma liar

      sorry,,,,,,,,,,,I disagree: palin I would go down on in a second. Bachmann and “no tits” malkin I would take to a rock fight,,,,maybe

      • William Carr

        Now, if Michelle Malkin had an emergency brain transplant…

    • Sarah

      Sad thing is, it’s so easy to be considered Republican “eye candy”. Did you see their convention last year? Fumarase City.

      • Ralf T. Dog

        Lots of high millage moo puppies.

  • Spinnaker

    Disconnected; wilfully ignorant; abrasive. The Wasilla Wonder Woman is the perfect spokesmoron for the Teabillies.

  • openlyblack

    The Wicked Witch of Wasilla and Carnival Cruz – and his fanboy 1-2-3 Look at Mr. Lee – have finally been associated with (and exposed as) the racist dingbats that comprise so much of the Tealiban.

  • Jon

    “In other words—she’s a moron.” Shoot any good fish in that barrel recently?

  • I really think there should be a mandatory IQ test administered to anyone seeking public office in the USA. That way mentally challenged people like Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz would not be permitted to waste the time or political leaders that actually have IQs north of 80. Nor would they be allowed to cost the nation credibility on the world stage.

    • Stephanie

      what is Obama’s IQ? Oh thats right, we don’t have access to any of his files (birth certificate, school transcripts)…… Weird how that works out.

      • independant

        He’s a community organizer, c’mon.

      • Daniel Moore

        Your a an internet troll, buzz off republican!

      • vwbtl99

        A lot higher than most republicans in goverment if not all

      • Sarah

        What is easily confirmed is that the lowest ACT and SAT scores come from all the states with strong Tea Party support. I’ve heard some are still birthers and climate deniers, but I wrote that off till now.

      • B.David

        Wrong AGAIN , sarah (do you look like Mrs. Palin?) The red states enjoy a VERY high ACT and SAT average. The lowest- Michigan. (derp) The Highest is the VERY RED New Hampshire. Get a clue. Get an education. Join The Tea Party.

      • jim

        She would , but she would have to have a lobotomy to fit in with those racist a$$holes.

      • Reddkl

        B.David – for the record – New Hampshire, a very red state did rank fairly high and that’s because only 19% of the students took the test. Maine did well too, but only 9% tested. You’re completely wrong as most red states ranked 47th-40th. Out of 50, that’s pretty bad.

      • Nay KnowledgeisPower White

        Who would want to join the ku klux klan? Really?

      • William Carr

        You get that if only the smartest students TAKE the test, the State looks pretty good ?

        Do you know how Soviet Russia used to handle Education?

        They encouraged anybody that wasn’t brilliant to drop out.

        Yup.

        They WANTED a class of peons that could only follow orders.

        They certainly didn’t want the expense of providing a world-class education to everybody.

        By the time a Soviet Citizen reached High School, all the “average” students had quit.

        So, when they bragged that their High School graduates all spoke two languages and could do Calculus…

        Well, that’s because only the Honor Students were left.

        Class sizes shrank year after year, until the graduating class was getting individual mentoring and encouragement.

        It’s the absolute reverse of the American ideal, that everybody should be provided with a good basic education and then choose to go on with College or a Trade School.

        But then, the Soviet Union was ruled by an Oligarchy, and was as far from Democracy as you can get.

        A Democracy NEEDS educated Citizens.

        All the Soviets needed to do was produce a few new Oligarch candidates per class, and a regular crop of drone workers.

      • melloe

        Considering he Graduated in the top 10% at Harvard, we know he is no dummy, unlike the previous President.. who was a cheer leader < Sorry, I could not resist.

      • Nay KnowledgeisPower White

        The person with the lowest scores, grades, and terrible school transcripts was President Bush.
        He gave all his birth certificate for all to view. you racist klan members just won’t accept it.

      • William Carr

        Weird, that a law passed in 1974 says college records are private?

        Weird, that no Presidential Candidate has EVER been required to release college records?

        As for the Birth Certificate, stop making yourself look stupid.

        Both versions have been released and verified for years.

        Only nutjobs continue to insist to the contrary.

      • UrStupid

        He was the editor of the Harvard Law Review, moron.

    • gemma liar

      yeah,,,but a sexy body with that temperament she would be fun to go down on

      • She would have to do a lot to earn my vote… but that would do.

    • independant

      The city of Washington, D.C. would be leaderless.

      • @Independant I am not so sure that would be a bad thing in light of current events. Too bad Ron Paul did not run. Only honest politician to have ever been in that city and he was smart enough to remain an independent.

      • William Carr

        I’m sorry, Ron Paul has a lot of racist baggage after his newsletter revelations.

        He’s just another nutjob in a suit.

        For an “honest” politician, see Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Alan Grayson, John Kerry… I won’t say there are hundreds like them, but they do exist.

      • I will give you this one, Elizabeth Warren would make an excellent President come 2016

    • vwbtl99

      The problem is that it really isn’t their IQ. It is more their mean spirited, their racism, their greed and their heartless beings.

  • Christine Peckelis

    Every time I hear one of them screech impeach him, in my mind I hear lynch him. I must have lived a very sheltered life because I have never seen such a large group of ugly spirited, morally bankrupt, ignorant loudmouths all in the same place before

    • ClearThinker

      Don’t be such a racist Christine. It’s not good.

      • Judith_Priest

        There is nothing racist about calling a large group of ugly spirited, morally bankrupt, ignorant loudmouths what they ARE.

      • Christine Peckelis

        There is nothing clear about your thinking if you think I’m the racist. You have to be a blithering idiot to miss the racist undertones when they parade a Confererate flag in front of the President’s home.

      • bigsmarts

        i do find that when the local free advice squad begins to cut down Pres. Obama’s platform, they eventually come down to racism as the real reason behind their dislike of his political stance. I call them “softcore racists”…the kind of weak-willed sub-hater who glance around the room and check for listeners color before speaking their leaky logic arguments.

      • William Carr

        You mean the guys that are sitting huddled together, muttering about the “gubbermint”, as if they’re afraid someone will hear them?

        Yeah, I know those guys.

      • Penciljockey

        You’re clearly a teatard

  • rockit robb

    Why would anyone listen to a quitter like Palin she quit on Alaska she would quit on America too

    • Stephanie

      At least she loves our country and has the best intentions in mind, unlike Obama who puts down our country to other countries every time he gets the chance.

      • marshall jr

        When? Can you give an example of putting down our country or others? please use citations.

      • ClearThinker

        “At times America has been arrogant.” BO

      • Judith_Priest

        That’s not a put-down! That’s TRUE!

        At other times, America has been awesome.

        Maybe THAT’s what’s wrong with you Teashits: you can’t accept the notion of constructive criticism. You think all constructive criticism is “hate”.

      • Nay KnowledgeisPower White

        That’s because all the dumb tea baggers are filled with hate towards all minorities, and especially direct it towards the first African American President. They are filled with racist hate. They are the Ku Klux Klan and they might as well just put on their white robes, and pointed hood hats. They should all just come out of the closet. They have been outed anyway. The whole country is aware that they are Klan members. Any group of people that would be as inappropriate as to wave a confederate flag in front of a Black Man’s family is certainly filled with racist hate. My prayers are with President Obama and his family, all minorities and the poor who are suffering during this shutdown. Women who cannot get Wic, families, yes families white, and black that cannot get foodstamps, children that cannot attend Headstart, Military who won’t get paid. And all this because a bunch of racist idiots don’t want to work with a Black President. Terrible. And the world is watching the Congress, NOT the Noble Peace Prize Winner, President Obama. The rest of the world countries like an admire President Obama like they did Nelson Mandela. Only in this land does the racism spew forth like cancer.

      • oldntrd

        The tea Party has its problems but RACISM is not one of them.

      • Milton D Beattie

        Like a few weeks back when he tried to sign the USA up to Al Queada and Al Nursa in Syria on the side of the In Disputable REAL Chemical weapons users.

        Obama must be Evil or Muslim to have wanted to do that. Thank God for Putin and the British (Excluding their PM) for blocking him.

        He was pushing and pushing and pushing to rush to the attack BEFORE the UN reported and Perversely Insisting that the UN evidence of WHO …. YES WHO did the attack be ignored and not given.

        What and EVIL BAR STEWARD!!! He TRULY HATES America!!!

      • melloe

        LOL, Obama pulls a diplomatic moves that would have gotten any white guy a citation for excellence, and you try, but fail to make it into a failure.

        You are the racist! MUPPET!!!

      • Nay KnowledgeisPower White

        You are one batshit crazy fool. President Obama put it to the world, and congress. He put it back on them…not pushing any agenda because he knew no one would agree with him. No matter what he does you klan members are so racist you will never agree with him. He is a US citizen, He is not Muslim. But what if he was Muslim? So what? Racist Idiot. President Obama is black and he is the POTUS. Get over racist hatred.

      • Milton D Beattie

        Do you have any information to offer or are you just oozing your hate based assumptions on me?

      • Ben Webster

        What a crock of shit!

      • William Carr

        You’ve got a serious case of Obama Derangement Syndrome there.

        So, you’re clinging to the delusion that the Syrian Rebels gassed THEMSELVES.

        When of course, we know that the Syrian Army had requested permission to use Serin on the Rebels over and over again… and we know they were in control of the biggest stockpile of chemical weapons in the Middle East.

        Obama had been planning a way to get those Chemical Weapons destroyed for a year, before some un-named Syrian General ignored Assad and used the rockets.

        That gave Obama an opportunity. Bring the hammer down, and let Putin take credit for being the “good cop” by offering a way out.

        And it worked, too. They’re destroying the stockpile as we speak.

      • B.David

        When has he NOT?!? please use citations

      • bigsmarts

        yes, please post with some citations that we can wrap our tiny demo brains around your arguments. And this to the “aided syrian terrorists” theme: i know which pundits were putting that crap out there before palin and bachmann ate it up and spit it back out a distorted semi-truth. I bet you’re speaking of the aid obama sent to syrian rebel forces, all non-lethal defensive materials such as gas masks and chemical protective suits and antidotes. it will save many lives, without any spill-over of weapons into neighboring (weak but still standing ) nations like lebanon and iraq.

      • William Carr

        Practically any speech Barack Obama gives is positive and inspiring.

        You twisted morons seize on the least comment to bolster your fear of the Invisible Obama.

        He’s the one you’re afraid of; the Man in the Empty Chair that Clint Eastwood was arguing with on National TV.

        He’s the imaginary Socialist, Marxist, Gay, Fascist, Anti-American plotter you fear; and he’s entirely the creation of your own minds.

  • Stephanie

    Running our country to the ground because you are a narcissist and cannot come to an agreement? That’s President Obama. The minute he lied about Banghazi was when he should have been impeached.

    • DadAltman

      Come on Stephanie, you can do better than than this. First you misspell Benghazi, then you accuse President Obama of not releasing his birth cert, then you say Palin loves ‘Merica and President Obama puts down our country. You’re waaaay behind in your Faux News talking points. LOL

      • Milton D Beattie

        Grow up…Spelling PLEEEEZZE! Get over it The rest is perfectly true. He even tried to have USA support Chemical weapons attackers and fight against the victims of the False Accusation for Saudi and Turkey’s new Oil Pipeline planned through Syria a few weeks back.

        He HATES America and will rape it until it is destroyed.

    Dress it up however you like. She’s actually right. Defaulting on our debt would be a violation of the 14th amendment of the US constitution.

    Now you seem to have confused the debt with the debt ceiling. Those are two entirely different things. I suggest you research as I don’t want to fill your page by explaining what each one is. We can reach the debt ceiling and not default, so long as we reduce spending. Unfortunately, even in this bogus shut down we’re still at over 80% of regular spending, and have already agreed to retroactively pay those furloughed so we’re not saving a penny right now.

    Don’t worry though. Nobody tried to impeach him over the illegal war in Libya, or the murder of American citizens Anwar al-Alwaki, and Abdulrahman al Alwaki without due process, so I’m sure nobody will attempt any impeachment over this. It’s just political theater to entertain partisan hacks like yourself.

Do any of you read or follow what is going on in this country and form your own conclusions or do you just regurgitate some propaganda fed to you by the shitty President and the almost as shitty government we have and their media?!?! You would honestly try to sit here and try to tell me Palin is worse than Biden if you did?!!!?!

    awww. caribou barbie is so cute when she tries to think. too bad the death panels have her on the “non-essential personnel” list….

  • FarSide2012

    We give her attention because she’s got a bodacious rack. She has a hot clutch of ka-bambas. A hefty haul of hooters, a savory satchel of sweater meat, a brace of bountiful boobers, etc. if she were flat-chested everyone in this blog would have forgotten her name back in 2009.

    The 1/2 term Governor of the most “socialist” state in the nation. She represented fewer people than live in any single borough in NYC, and couldn’t handle the job. She would probably have been investigated and charged with misuse of the office had she stayed on. The list of financial abuses that she and her secessionist husband perpetrated is long and reads like “trailer trash gone wild”. Her grasp of common literature and current events dates from ’08 forward, so it’s not surprising that she has no clue about law and parliamentary procedure. This is the best known face of the TEA party, and, I believe, the most representative. The entire gaggle of idiots promise to “take their country back”, and by that they mean to the dark ages of religious rule over every human advance since we crawled out of the cave.

    Once you’ve said “Palin” you’ve said it all; MORON is redundant !

    I have despised the fraud from day one. She is a total narcissist, but one with very limited intelligence who thinks she is smart. That makes this cretin dangerous. She whips up her stupid base of non-thinkers and then pulls in the religious right with her fake Christianity. She is vile and has caused immeasurable harm to this country. I shall never forgive McCain for putting this woman in the spotlight. She will never willingly leave it.

  • I just love the way liberals spin the news. It is always one-sided and never addresses the truth..Frankly, I don’t know how anyone with any sense of patriotism and desire for freedom can subscribe to either party. They are both corrupt and serve only the interests of the rich..They use bleeding hearts to push for more freebies for those too lazy to work at all..3 generations of welfare has resulted in people believing the working people of this nation should fully support them. Wake up people.. Liberals aren’t liberal and conservatives aren’t really conservative.. it is a curse of Democracies throughout history..Corruption.. It is why the founding father established us a a republic..Learn the difference or you will all lose all your freedoms as we become a slave nation totally dependent on government that serves only the rich.

  • After reading many posts on this site, I see a horde of blind followers. Not one ever addresses the constitutionality of this President. None of you even care about your own freedom.. Liberals are always calling it racist..Favorite words..If you actually studied, you would know that the Democratic party has a long history of racist attitudes..It has always been racist..it was the democrats that disarmed Blacks after the civil war, it was democrats that comprised the original KKK, it was democrats the installed the present welfare system and oppressed Black people with it.. Martin Luther King, Jr. called Welfare the “white man’s way of oppressing black people.” If you would stop reacting with emotion and learn to read, your opinion might change.

      Anyone that “likes” Ted Nugent like you do has no credibility. Do you s**t yourself too?

      Actually, they were Southern CONSERVATIVE Democrats – Dixiecrats – like Strom Thurmond – who pretty much all turned to The Dark Side, aka the modern-day GOP.

    I feel sorry for you guys in the USA dealing with these Selfservative spivs, but here in the UK we’ve got the same bunch of odiously vile, abhorrent lower than vermin scum Republicans trying to destroy the UK, asset strip and privatize everything for their own gains. I’m guessing that they are all so inbred that their family tree’s are nothing but a stump…

  • Jack Shipley

    This is where the bagging idiots have lead. Frankly, if necessary, President Obama should uphold his oath of office and adhere to the Consititution over a a law, a mere law.

    Palin is no patriot: She’s a secessionist of long-standing.

  • Sue Rose Castiglione

    It’s time to leave Sarah Palin and her audience behind. Let’s concentrate on the puppetmasters behind the scenes; the ones who orchestrate foolish scenes like this to distract us from their stealthy, and far more sinister, behavior. In Michigan, it’s Dick DeVos and his Mackinac Center for Public Policy that are writing legislation, undermining public schools, robbing government workers of their reputations, pensions & healthcare.

      Today’s contribution from the Peanut Gallery; anybody in Michigan that fails or refuses to take a drug test will lose their jobless benefits.

      What’s next ? A law saying the WORKER has to pay for the drug test too ?

      So very true! They’ve been trying to get their own impeachment going ever since Jimmuh took office. Five decades!

    “default is an impeachable offense and bypassing Congress to avoid default is an impeachable offense.”

    The latter is technically true, the former is not. Such power is delegated only to the Congress in Article 1 Section 8. The debt ceiling (aka. credit limit) will be raised to avoid default, but the true problem begins with Congress authorizing appropriations that the Treasury, by law, must then fund, but restrained from borrowing more money via debt ceiling (borrowing limit) to meet the requirements. Thus a default, and even recession is possible as the Treasury is forced to resort to “extraordinary measures” to finance government expenditures and obligations.

    The national debt is 17 trillion; with current revenue and spending, the
    deficit is just under .8 trillion. That would be the equivalent of a household that brings in $55,000 annually but spends over $70,400 per year, with a total credit card debt of $342,000, and rising.

    Granted Palin is a religious nutjob that no one should listen to; To believe we can tax or borrow our way out of this, rather than control spending…. government throwing more money into the economy via bailout or stimulus, and sticking its nose into one industry after the next, legalized counterfeiting, or borrowing more money… that is batshit crazy.

    We can either work together by “hunkering” down on spending, while
    trying to make it as painless as possible (the opposite of what Obama was
    doing during the shutdown of non-essential government), or we can continue on this seemingly carefree path, until nature takes its course with financial ruin or even collapse. And then the Democrats and Republicans will do nothing but blame the other, and they will both be right.
