President Barack Obama says there are multiple ways to resolve the debt ceiling mess, but it has to be bipartisan (in other words, the GOP has to go along with the Dems) and it has to happen fast.

Four ways, actually:

1) Give Obama what he wants
2) Give Reid what he wants
3) Give Pelosi what she wants
4) All of the above

See? It's easy!

Almost out of time my ass.

A credit downgrade is going to happen no matter what we do and there will be no default without somebody making a conscious choice to default.

The mask is slipping form the DC Political media machine. The truth is coming out. This is why Progressive Facists in the 0-bot media are in hysteria today

The big DC political machine lie of this whole thing is the GOP needs a bill.

NO, the 0 Democrats need a bill. They are the party of spend. They are the ones who have to go to the voters in 2012 and defend their total mishandling of the economy for the last 4 years.

The GOP candidate in 2012 is going to be running against DC. The 2012 election will be a referendum on 0’s Presidency.

Time for people to quit buying the propaganda fed them by the DNC Media-Political machine, the 0 Dems, not the GOP, will be hurt the worst by a failure to strike a deal.

Here what you do GOP, you tell the Senate “Sorry but all your Debt bills are D.O.A. CCB was the compromise, if you want a bill, there it is.”.

So, you just rush the legislation I want on through without any further discussion, because I say so.

First they stall for 800 days, then all of a sudden we are in a crisis and we have to sign a emergency blank bill with details to be determined later.

Hey! I like peas, particularly snap peas. They're rich in antioxidants and taste good.

This whole thing makes me sick. There is no common sense anywhere. There is no correct thinking. It’s just a giant chess game.. us against them...and we are all the losers. They don’t suffer any of the consequences. They still get their paycheck and all the freebies on the back of taxpayers. They don’t have to participate in the nasty bills they pass.. BTW... for our good. They pose and make sound bytes. Then they all slap themselves on the back and go out for a round of golf and cocktails. THEY ALL MAKE ME SICK.

The more he cries "crisis" and "we must act fast", the more I want to slow down and really look at the terrain.

We've been suckered by this line too many times!

BLITZER: So what you’re saying is the president did present a plan to the speaker, John Boehner.

DALEY: Yes.

BLITZER: But - but he didn’t...

DALEY: Right.

BLITZER: - make it public.

DALEY: No, because there’s... both the speaker and - and the president had agreed and - that these sort of negotiations do not happen in public. There’s not a plan out there in the public realm, whether it’s the fiscal commission, whether it’s the Gang of Six, whether it’s Congressman Ryan’s plan - Congressman Ryan’s plan lost in the Senate overwhelmingly.

So there’s no plan that’s out there, by any of these people who are saying this, that has any sort of chance of passing both houses and getting signed by the president
