I see, so any act, big or small that sends us into debt is bad.  Does that go for republicans too?  how about members of the tea party? 

Our debt is the result of over 100 years of reckless spending, poor planning, and the politics of re-election.  Its ridiculous that you have chosen a state dinner to suddenly draw the line and declare to the world; "No More."  Where were you when G.W. enacted the biggest expansion of government in American history? 

The thing that kills me most about the far right is that they have no shame, and apparently no memory.

Much of the so-called far right is about as socialistic as you are.  The basis of the Republican Party is socialism - we're talking about all the way back to Abraham Lincoln.  How many times have you seen a so-called "conservative" Republican support a socialism?  Happens all the time.  Being on the opposite side of Obama's issues does not make one a conservative.

I can understand you being a Republican or re-constructed Democrat - the country is full of 'em.

      I see, so since it's been going on for so long, it's OK

     It doesn't matter where you draw the line, as long as it gets drawn before the total collapse of our country.

     This president is no different than Clinton, it's all one big party to him, cost be damned.

Still on the state dinners?
 How about something truly important like the debt ceiling. Look up which Presidents raised it the most.You might be sadly surprised, and every one of them had their excuses. Now we are still stuck paying for a war that just won't go away, because some are still making huge profits off it.  Also every state that has Gov't contracts is protecting it's own... including building planes that the military doesn't want.oink.oink.  ( now pushing ironic sarcasm button)
Some of those taxes you say you can't afford are taken from me and given to you, and other states. You think you deserve my money? Think again! Especially with the nasty attitude I see on the forum. Why don't you folks do the right thing and refuse the money? Where is your misplaced pride now, huh? Learn to get along without our charity. We can use every penny right here. See, I have my Gov't dislikes. You just never hit mine.

This president is different than Clinton.  Bill Clinton was the only president in my lifetime, and probably yours that balanced the budget, paid down the debt, and made real progress on the trade deficit.  He did all that without making any severe cuts to important domestic programs, instead he allowed the economy to grow, and he had a little luck.


Now if we can have another president that can pull those things off without making draconian cuts, I'd say that president deserves a fancy state dinner.

      Where I would disagree is your so called domestic programs. Being in one of the largest welfare states, I can understand.

      No. there are several presidents in my lifetime that far surpassed anything that Clinton accomplished.

    Agreed, if we can put a president in office that does the will of the people , I will personally cook him the best steak he has ever had.
