The Quote of the Decade: Who made it?
« on: March 01, 2012, 06:12:12 PM »
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.
"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me . . . Anything can happen, child. Anything can be"

lots of things he said as senator that he seems to have forgotten as prez.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Thats a heck of a quote there Iddee.  It's to bad that it's too long for a bumper sticker. 

Before you pointed this one out, I thought it was
       "We have to sign the bill to find out whats in it"  -  Nancy Pelosi

Oh Crap!

You fell for it.

Now blue bee will be telling us about republicans who raised taxes, side steeping what we have now, and rationalizing this as best he can.

You didn't see the line being cast?

Come on guys, you actually think he did not know who said that qoute?

Go ahead blue bee....they gave you the opening you were looking for. Reel in the line.  :roll:

Here....I'll start it for you: "Well, with the history of republicans, I was mystified who it could of been since the qoute could be applied to all those I mentioned......"
