Where’s the president’s plan (to solve debt crisis)?

As Democrats continue to demagogue the debt ceiling debate, we need to do things to see exactly where the president’s party is coming from.

First, we should bear in mind that when Congress considered the debt ceiling in 2006 with a Mr. George W. Bush was in the White House, not one single Senate Democrat (yes, you read that right), not one single Senate Democrat voted to raise the debt limit.  Guess having the federal government default is just jim-dandy (and also possibly peachy-keen) when a Republican is in the White House.

Oh, and, a Mr. B.H. Obama was then a member of the Senate’s Democratic caucus.

The second thing we need do is to ask a simple question. And for this question (via Gateway Pundit), I turn to the junior Senator from the Sunshine State, a Mr. M. Rubio:

OK, so where’s the plan? Where’s the president’s plan? I’ve never seen a piece of paper with the president’s name on it that’s his plan to solve this crisis. I’ve seen press conferences. I’ve seen lectures that he’s given to the Congress. I’ve seen these press avails where the camera comes in and takes a bunch of pictures. I haven’t seen a plan. Where is the president’s plan?“

Oh, and remember that 36-hour deadline the president was giving House Republicans to come up with a plan, a deadline which they wisely did not meet? Why did the president not come up with his own plan in that timeframe?

He was asking Republicans to do something that he himself refused to do. Guess that’s what you call leading from behind?



  1. It is much harder to back away from something on paper.

  2. President Obama doesn’t have a plan; he wants to raise taxes. Period. The Republicans have to call his bluff. NO MERCY!!!

  3. Vote for the CC&B and send it to the Senate! It’s just a shame that an idiot like McConnell is leader of the Senate and not Rubio.

  4. The more I see of Marco Rubio the more I wish he was our President right now.

  5. McConnell’s plan needs to go down in flames; it’s a total abdication of leadership while giving Obama the keys to kingdom. If McConnell thinks he won’t get the blame, he’s full of mud. I think he wants to take out the Tea Party, but he’s the one that needs to go.
