    Clinton, McCain emerge as comeback winners in New Hampshire primary



    WASHINGTON - Democrat Hillary Clinton pulled off an unexpected narrow victory in New Hampshire on Tuesday, dramatically rescuing her bid for the White House in a tense battle with Barack Obama.
    Clinton, who's fighting to become the first woman in the Oval Office, mounted a surprisingly strong showing after bracing for a second defeat following her devastating third-place showing in Iowa.

    Republican John McCain also nabbed a major comeback victory, putting him solidly back in his party's nomination race.
    While Obama, vying to make history as the first black U.S. president, scored big among independents and voters between 18 and 24, Clinton attracted lower-income voters and seniors and did best among voters citing the economy as their top concern.
    But a big factor for Clinton was women voters, who had gone over to Obama in large numbers in Iowa. Nearly half in New Hampshire were once again supporting her, while Obama got only a third.

    President Obama called House Speaker John Boehner today to tell him that he won't talk to him.

    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 U.S. 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 Obama in 2006
    That is what Obama said before voting against raising the debt limit to $8.965 trillion. On October 17, the United States will max out it's debt limit of $16.7 trillion. Now Obama says it would be irresponsible not to raise the limit.

    What is the point of even having a debt ceiling if we are going to raise it every time we get close to it?

    Very true. Debt ceiling needs to be set and stayed in place. Budget has to be set where it has more positive balance to start paying off the debt no matter who is the politician. Would post an image but cannot upload.

    Well as Republicans cave under the pressure of falling poll numbers thier tendency to go into self political preservation mode kicked in, having secured only to provisions fought for and that being: income verrification for Obamacare subsidies and the sequester cuts remain in place. So in essense Obama gets 100% of everything he wanted so that there will be nothing left to negotiate.

    Seems last night would be the answer, even if the budget is only for a couple of months.

    ...Kicked the can down the road. I believe that the attempt to defund Obamacare was an overreach given the political demographics on Capital Hill, but Ted Cruz and the other Tea Party Republicans were doing what their constituents sent them their to do. It was the divisive tone and the attacks against those Tea Party Republicans from within the Rebublican Party itself from RINOs like McCain that killed any effort to delay or roll back the unfair exemptions and gave the President a clear path to get 100% of everything he wants regardless of their harmful effects.

    Like I said before, if the party wants a bill to become law, changed or completely remove, they have to get enough in Congress that will support them. Now, worldwide, the tea party is seen as extremist. I miss the good old GOP, Reagan style, not this.
