Emancipation and the Debt Ceiling

I just heard with my own ears an attempt at moral relativism that should shock and disgust every individual in the Untied States.
Chuck Todd, while asking the President why he was not using the 14th Amendment to unilaterally raise the Debt Ceiling, attempted to equate the irresponsible spending with the Emancipation Proclamation… “it had to be done when congress would not act…”.
So spending money we do not have is morally equivalent to individual freedom?

Do these Leftists have no shame?

Therefore… being responsible with our money while admitting that we have spent ourselves into oblivion and we must CUT spending in order to remain solvent is equal to, what?  Slavery?  Indentured Servitude?

I would argue that continuing to spend money that we do not have is enslaving everyone and those not yet born to those who are loaning us 40% of every dollar being spent.

Meanwhile back at the press conference:

“You do not go to dinner and eat all you want then leave without paying the check…” – Barack Obama 1/14/13

Well Mr. President… this is exactly what we have done.

It’s done.  It is too late.

Now is the time to STOP EATING… so that we have some possibility of “paying the check…” as you stated.

Sophisticated Sophistry seems to pass for intelligent discourse.

And again:

“We can’t manage our affairs in such a way that we pay our bills?” – Barack Obama 1/14/13

No Mr. President, we cannot.  Clearly.  And what you are proposing does nothing to alter that fact.

Pathetic… Mr. President, you ask why we are having this discussion every three months?  It’s because we are AT THE LIMIT or CEILING of any reasonable (frankly unreasonable) level of debt that could be paid back.

I hear the violin in the background… quick grab some wood to throw on this beautiful fire.  Rome has never looked better.

Finally:

“The public has agreed with me.” – Barack Obama 1/14/13

May be they have.

(An aside… it’s the Debt Dummy.  The Deficit is irrelevant.)
