OBAMA: Give Me One More Chance

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.”
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006


  1. No one ever has to like the man in the office of President of the United States, but every American is expected to respect the Office he holds. Only racist Republicans would come up with an illustration such as this! The screwed-up economy Republicans handed him when he first entered the Oval Office and subsequent determination not to help him thereafter (because their first goal was to "bring him to his knees") has made this country so much worse off. And on top of all of that, the disrespect shown says much more about Republicans than it will ever say about the president. Grow up and get over the fact you were beaten in 2008 by a black man! I thought - by the name of this blog - that you would be "correcting" stories in the Havre Daily News. I can now see that is a sham. You are just another right wing GOP newsletter.

  2. John you had better take a look at some of the illustrations used for Bush when he was in office.

    We all know that it was, and still is, all "Bushes Fault" Why is it that all of you newspeople are die-hard biased democrats that blow a cork at the thought that someone would dare question a democrat?

  3. You're right about the illustrations for Bush. They were over the top and I didn't approve of them. As to being a biased Democrat and retired newspaper guy, that wasn't always the case. I voted with you folks until George W. and especially when the Republicans went ballistic in the U.S. House and Senate in 2008. The GOP is not your grandfather's (or even your father's) party any more. When did you all become so nasty? I long for the good ol' days and a spirit of compromise, but I'm afraid that isn't going to happen until the GOP has the Oval Office, the House and the Senate. Anything less and it's going to be "fight 'til the last breath!"

  4. Be careful of history, it was the Republican's that proposed making everyone buy health insurance. That happened back in '93 to counter Clinton's health care plan. What a difference 20 years makes! Both sides seem more intent on making the other look bad than getting anything done. Please quit making it 'Montana, Bigot Sky Country'.
