      The President said 80% of American people want a balanced approach? What!!! 80% doesn't even vote. Who is he listening to ?

      President Obama has finally demonstrated his true colors. He is tied to ideology and cannot break away for the good of the nation. He has turned down every good effort saying he will "look" at structural changes to budget items but will not commit to anything. He is acting in bad faith not only to these discussions but to Americans. This man must be removed from office through impeachment for incompetence.

      President Obama refuses a balanced budget Amendment. He clearly has demonstrated his desire to spend America into oblivion. This is his path to "Fundamentally changing America. Now, maybe this will become more meaningful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwhKuunp8D8&fe

      Is the collapse of America the future Democrats have elected Obama to do? Well, this is what Democrats, our youth and irresponsible conservatives have done to America.

      Thank you for electing a citizen of Kenya to the highest office in our country. Mr. Obama is clearly expressing Kenyan ideology. Tribal shared wealth and responsibility. Get it? It's a foreign thought and ideology.

      Americans got who they elected and now we all get to pay for it. Obama will collapse this country. He is intent and he has said he will change it. Now we see how.

      The House Republicans will offer a bill to Cut, Cap, and Balance per House Speaker Boehner. If the bill is passed and turned over to the Senate, it will probably be voted down by the Democratic majority. If this happens I wonder if the Republican ensamble will simply allow the debt ceiling negotiations to drop? It would seem it would be in the best interests of the Republican Party to show their opponents as the party of "no." The question becomes not only political but very detremental to further discussions of handling the economic distress the country has been experiencing.

      A new breed of terrorist hit Washington this year. These republican terrorists are holding our country hostage to an ideology which has brought us to a point of no return. The bond markets may very well reduce our AAA rating reguardless whether we raise the debt limit or not only because of the republicans policy of "just say no".
