Day By Day August 4, 2011 – On the House

Did you see how quickly President Obama beat it out of Washington after he signed the debt limit compromise bill in a private ceremony in the White House? Obama has an anathema to governing and wants to get back to what he does best – campaigning and delivering speeches.

I don’t think this pivot towards jobs or anything else will work this time.

And, the Obama jobs bus tour in the Midwest?

This I have to see.

The protests won’t be pretty. And, then, there is Joe the Plumber.

The Debt Limit deal is not the greatest, but at least Speaker Boehner came off better than the President who is slinking off to Chicago today with the LEFT blogosphere pissed at him. Boehner called Obama’s bluff and he won by not losing.

Now, if the economy continues to go into the ditch, Obama REALLY owns it.

The LEFT understands the scenario better than the White House and know Obama is spiraling down to Jimmy Carter type territory. I mean, when you Jon Stewart starts to go after you.

Video: MoveOn.Org and Ventura County Democrats Protest Rep Elton Gallegly Over Bipartisan Debt Ceiling Deal

Posted Posted in American Debt Linit, Elton Gallegly, MoveOn.org, Ventura County Democratic Party

 

 

This is just a set up from the Ventura County Democratic Party who astro-turfed this protest in their press releases. You see, the local Democrats know the California Citizen’s Redistricting Commission has gerrymandered Gallegly out of the current CA-24 Congressional district to the newly formed CA-36 which is less GOP friendly.

So, they go to the streets ala Saul Alinsky to paint Gallegly in the worst “intellectually dishonest” light that they can.

But, remember the American Debt Limit deal was a bipartisan affair and was supported by Democratic Senators Barbara Boxer AND Dianne Feinstein. President Obama signed the legislation yesterday.

House Votes 269 – 161 To Raise Debit Limit and Cut Spending

Posted Posted in American Debt Linit, Gabrielle Giffords

No American default now.

The House has passed legislation designed to keep the government from defaulting on its debts. The measure also sets a course for reducing the federal deficit in the future.The Senate, where support is stronger, is expected to take up the bill on Tuesday, the deadline for Congress to act before the government loses its ability to pay all its bills.

The 269-161 vote in the House came after Republican leaders spent the day urging recalcitrant conservatives to support the bill.

The bill would raise the debt ceiling by more than $2 trillion and cut federal spending by a similar amount over the next decade. A special congressional committee would be set up to consider entitlement and tax changes.

So, the long Washington drama is over and default has been averted.

On a happy note, Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, the target of an assasination attempt in January returned to the House and cast her vote for the Debt Limit bill.
