Speak To US, Prez.

Be sure to check out where the "quote" came from. 
The Quote of the Decade: 
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, 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.” 
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006!
pass it on till eternity...
( was so nice of him to give us this great quote for posterity!)

There's little room for compromise when our government representatives are so obviously playing with our futures.  I'm really in a quandary when trying to understand how decision makers can be so cavalier about killing the "Golden Goose"; the US innovation idea and money generator that has raised the tides of wealth worldwide for decades.  It's taken for granted, but Dark Ages can return, believe it or not.  Ideological corruption is relentless in it's process of dumbing us down to squabble about plattitudes (rich vs poor etc.) content that we'll always "need them" and continue to tread water rather than actually work towards solutions.  Real smart people are usually unwilling to put up with the brutal gauntlet of public office so we're stuck with these bozos?
