Senator Rubio informs president of his opposition to raising debt ceiling

Marco Rubio has declared to obama that he will oppose raising debt ceiling any further:

In a scathing letter sent to Barack Obama this morning, Senator Marco Rubio said that under the President’s first term in office, “more and more people have come to believe that America is becoming a deadbeat nation.”
Rubio went on to pledge that he would challenge any further increase in the debt ceiling, arguing that “we [Congress] need to make it routine to actually spend no more than we take in.” In the letter obtained by HUMAN EVENTS, the Florida Senator said that President Obama’s upcoming request to increase the debt ceiling by a whopping $1.2 trillion will cause the nation’s public debt to surpass the $16 trillion mark.
“I will oppose your request to continue borrowing and spending recklessly.”

Current GDP  $15,105,346,000,000 (rounded)

Current Debt $15,199,051,000,000 (rounded)

At the end of August, the ceiling was raised to $16.7  trillion.

obama plans to request $1.2 trillion soon.  Just how high do they intend to go.  This does not even include SS and medicare liabilities (which is now receiving less money because of obama’s big fine so-called tax break, a reduction in FICA deductions.)

And he is worried about “payday loan” companies.

Watch him.  He may try to go around the congress on this, too.

Obama losing independents in Florida with 61% disapproval, Rubio gains 4 points

The post-debt deal poll shows little change in Obama’s May approval among Republicans and Democrats. But among independent voters he plummets from a 47 – 45 percent split in May to a 61 – 33 percent disapproval today.

http://www.quinnipiac.edu/x1297.xml?ReleaseID=1632

New Poll:

It was with independents where Obama took his biggest hit. Sixty-one percent of independents said they now disapprove of the president’s performance compared to 33 percent who approved. In May, 47 percent of the independents approved of Obama’s job performance compared to 45 percent who did not.

Obama wasn’t helped by the recent fight with Congress over raising the nation’s debt ceiling, the poll indicated.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio‘s approval rating jump four points (from 45 to 49 percent) after he voted against the debt deal. 

Senator Rubio recently associated himself with the tea party in his address on the debt ceiling on the Senate floor.  See:  https://bellalu0.wordpress.com/2011/07/31/marco-rubio-freshman-fla-senator-telling-truth-on-debt/

And who acted in the best interest of the United State in the debt ceiling plan?

Total D, R, and I:  Obama 36 %, Boehner 33%, and Harry Reid only 11%.

Marco Rubio: Can’t compromise when the other side has no plan

Senator (Marco) Rubio: “I have watched the President give press conferences, I have watched the President give speeches, but I have yet to see a plan from the President. And with all due respect to my colleagues in the other party here in the Senate, I haven’t seen a plan from them either. They are the majority party. They control this chamber. They control the Senate. And I haven’t seen a plan from them.

“A moment ago we heard this talk about – well we have to compromise. Well it’s really hard to compromise when the other side doesn’t have a plan.

…..

And so I would urge the leadership of this chamber and the President of the United States to offer their ideas on paper. Put your ideas on paper and offer them so we can begin to work on this concept of compromise that you’ve offered. Because you can’t compromise and you can’t negotiate with people that will not offer a plan.

They are blowing smoke with the so-called “Gang of 6” plan.  It’s not a plan.  It’s a decoy.  It’s not in writing.  It’s nowhere near being a piece of legislation.  Obama blew that out there to try to deflect attention from the fact they have no plan and the fact that the democrats and the president have shot down the only plan there is.

Marco Rubio at Ft. Myers Rally

COUNTDOWN

SEAT BY SEAT BY SEAT

“The image of Gov. Charlie Crist embracing President Barack Obama at a Fort Myers rally to promote the then-yet-to-be passed $787 billion federal stimulus package. On Wednesday, (02.10.10) Crist’s primary challenger, former House Speaker Marco Rubio, went to the same hall exactly a year after the Crist/Obama event and rallied a wildly enthusiastic crowd of 500 against what he says is failed economic policy.”

STAND WITH MARCO RUBIO

REWIND – Scott Brown: “Shame on Chuck”

Prior to January 19, 2010

The tone has changed a bit since the 19th election, but it’s kinda fun to look back at the ridicule the tea parties have suffered.

First, is Scott Brown’s response to Chuck Schumer calling him a “far right teabagger Republican.”:

Below, watch Rachel Maddow and Ana Marie Cox mock “teabaggers” prior to the Tax Day April, 2009 protest.  Notice the smirk on her face.  She is so cute, huh?

Odd, when you type in the word on you tube, all that comes up are these videos disparaging and making fun of the tea parties.  Now, I know there are many, many videos out there in favor of them, so the search mechanism seems very fixed.  Definitely trying to control the perception.  But then it is to be expected from You Tube/Google. See Google Goes to Washington

Oh, well, watch those election results, beginning with JANUARY 19th Massachuetts.  🙂

Tom Friedman is just saying “he doesn’t sense a positive agenda”  from the tea bag movement.  Notice:  The positive agenda is to change Washington, D. C., by use of the ballot box, seat by seat.  That is the agenda.

One to watch: Crist/Rubio in Florida.

“The Republican primary in Florida, which pits Governor Charlie Crist against Marco Rubio, is being watched carefully as a harbinger for the impact the Tea Party may have on the midterm elections.”

Brand new poll today:  showing 47 Rubio/44 Crist.

This is the seat vacated by the resignation of Mel Martinez.

Crist appointed George Lemieux to basically hold the seat for him.

“Lemieux, 40, was Crists’ closest and most loyal adviser and political guru. Lemieux ran Crist’s 2006 campaign for governor — earning the nickname “maestro” from the governor — and later served as his chief of staff. Before that, LeMieux was Florida’s deputy attorney general under Crist from 2003-2007.”  From Orlando Sentinel
