When all the Turkeys return to Washington next week......

...... flutter up to their roosts in the House and Senate........ numero uno on their agenda will be the National Debt Ceiling... They'll speechify, beat their breasts, and then with loud sighs heard across the land - they will approve it and and send down to that Turkey on the other end if Pennsylvania Avenue to sign,

He will sign it quietly... if it's big enough and doesn't have any strings.. of course. 

To encourage these hard working folks- I offer the following carefully constructed and presented words by a US Senator:

"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 

Bless his heart, ain't it great to have a true Statesman President Community Organizer looking after our interests in Washington!
