I would love to see them run an impeachment through the House, it'll die in the Senate like it did in 1998 and Obama will gain in popularity just like Clinton did and the Greedy Oil-soaked Pharisees will lose the House and hand us a Democratic supermajority in the Senate for Obama's last two years.

Too bad we couldn't just impeach the GOP in Congress since they are the ones who ran the debt through the ceiling for the past 12 years plus..

Right on Alan Lambert !

The GOP needs to go. They are like a malignant tumor...a pox on society. Nothing good has come out of that party for years.

Starting with Ted Cruz, Michelle Bachman, and The Turtle, every GOP who has been obstructing the government since the election should be sent to Guantanamo and tried as terrorists.

I'm in agreement with Arielle. These disgusting and malignant people are using any vile means and any lie they can conjure up in their tiny heads to bring this country to it's knees AGAIN.

NEVER trust a Republican!! Reid and Pelosi would do well to run by that mantra. They have no conscience or shame and will destroy what's left and hanging by a thread of our Democracy, middle class and God help the poor. The soulless tactics of revenge, extortion and just plain hate driven politics on a Nation that, in their BS racist eyes, elected a black President has to be addressed with ousting their sorry, slimy asses from our government, hoping they never darken our country's doorway again to cause such damage and pain. I don't have an adjective strong enough to express my complete disgust with THIS dirty little band of insane in a political party that uses hate and vile ploys to damage the country they claim to love so much. Frauds and Fakes. Remove Republican's starting 2014 until we clean out the bottom of the barrel garbage that seeped it's way into our lives and government. NO DEALS WITH EXTORTIONIST!!

"...it would allow House Republicans to save face, because instead of caving into extortionist Democratic demands that they prevent a default by raising the debt limit (which, coincidentally, is the only thing that can prevent a default), they could sit on their asses and do nothing.

Then, when the government defaults because Republicans sat around and did nothing instead of raising the debt ceiling, they could impeach President Obama for obeying the law that they refused to change. Sure, they would be blaming him for a crisis that they created,..."

Goh-merde, Guano Girl, Cantaloupe Calves King and the many others are so crazy . . . they are extortionists, domestic terrorists . . . pick your descriptive.

People remember Timothy McVeigh, the domestic terrorist that bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995 killing 168 people. He was convicted of the use of a weapon of mass destruction, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, destruction with the use of explosives, and
8 counts of first-degree murder, and sentenced to die by lethal injection, which he did 11/06/01.

The same should be applied to the Teabagger fanatics including, Goh-merde, Bachmann, King, Cruz etc. The weapon of mass destruction: government shutdown and debt default. Conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction: look at their own rhetoric that has being going on, and look at the 2011 shutdown and credit downgrade as proof of continuing conspiracy. Destruction with the use of explosives: define shutdown and debt default as explosives and you have your smoking gun! Charges of first degree murder: how many will die is yet to be determined, but with no SNAP programme, no WIC programme, no food inspections, no children getting life saving cancer treatments at the NIH, and on and on . . . well that is murder. The Republicanus/Teabaggers should be tried and convicted and sentenced to death by lethal voting.

2014 midterms are coming. That should be, will be the date of death of the Republicanus/Teabaggers and their sedition!

Petition previously signed.

Mildly annoying and yet amusing all at the same time. That anyone would stoop so low as to help the terrorist GOP is laughable. I don't think you'll get any takers here, Carol. Let them sink into the mess of their own making. Let them lie in it.

The lot of them should be tried on Treason. The whole world is watching as they hold our government hostage. If we default, it would be the first time in history if I'm not mistaken.

Reid and Pelosi are jackasses themselves, but yes "Never trust a Republican."
Cruz, Gomhert, Rand (who has been awfully quiet, it seems) and their ilk are clearly demented, and ought to be re-called for malfeasance!

Thank you for the post.

Lots of good people are without pay, going hungry, while these folks just sit back and let the paychecks roll in.

Please help. Make them as uncomfortable as we are by calling, visiting, or writing them and telling them to cease and desist.

Signed & noted. Thank you, Judy.
I agree with Jae, too. Those 2 wars weren't even included in the budget....it was a totally separate deal. Obama added them in soonafter becoming Pres. Clinton left with a surplus, and the GOP just went on a crazy spending spree after 9/11.....giving all their cronies "No-Bid-Cost-Plus" contracts. Those were my tax dollars, too! And, I objected, for all the good it did. Now, they want those with the least, INCLUDING OUR VETERANS to pay the price for their greedy shenanigans.
I also agree with Arielle.....that we should ship them off to Gitmo, since they have refused to close it.

There is a lot of name calling and rabid hate here. Perhaps we could we try some peace and logic instead.

What would you do with your household budget if your credit card debt totaled more than your yearly income and you were bumping into your credit limits? Raise your limits? No, you would stop going further into debt and start cutting your spending so that you could continue making payments (and perhaps make even bigger ones) on your credit cards.

Not raising the debt ceiling does not equal default. It just means not going further into debt. We are making our payments now, and we would continue to make the payments even if we do not take on more debt.

The government is shutting down national parks, veterans memorials, and food stamps rather than bringing home our military or putting an end to foreign aid. This is some theater.

Some it seems who otherwise have sense... are judging a book by its cover, while a "know nothing" lectures on that huge sum of ignorance they possess and hope to share. The fun never stops.

When someone compares a "household budget" to Macroeconomics or the international economy and our place within it as its leader with all the inherent complexity therein ..I hear someone who knows nothing seeking to share it, by trying to passing off simplistic clap trap as... logic.

Just a few tidbits about the GOP Congressman who wants to "impeach Obama" if the government defaults:

"Hooray! Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, perpetual leading contender for Dumbest Member of Congress, has a shiny new impeachment bauble. Since that IRSghazigate thing didnít pan out, and the presidenting while black thing didnít pan out, and the no-show-us-your-real-real-REAL-birth-certificate-from-the-Hawaiian-Nation-of-Kenya thing didnít pan out, and the Obama-did-9/11-to-America-with-the-Muslim-Brotherhood thing didnít pan out, maybe this will work:

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) isnít sure whether heíll support a debt limit deal, but he is sure of one thing: a debt default would be President Barack Obamaís fault. [...]"
