“A Sign of Leadership Failure” ?

18 Apr

Back in 2006, before Obama brought his partisan hackery to the White House, he voted “no” on raising the debt limit, as did ALL Senate Democrats.  He had strong words against doing so, stating “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure…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.”
Now that he is President, and Democrats are the majority in the Senate, they are singing a different tune.  Obama claims that his “no” vote was purely “political” (what a shocker!).

But, to be fair, Republicans are hypocrites on this matter too.  It appears that for most Washington politicians, which way they will vote on whether to raise our nation’s debt limit is solely based on which party is in power. The party not in power seems very comfortable voting”no” and proceeds to demagogue the issue, then immediately flip-flop and defend it as soon as they get back in power.

So nice to see that we have principled men and women representing us all.
