I once was blind, but now I see?

(h/t Crew of 42)

Passing 218 - 210 in the House, with 5 abstentions, here's a breakdown of the voting on the Changeling's and Boehner's, hardly bi-partisan, "Please sir, can I have more"/debt-reduction bill (such an oxymoron!)

Hopefully for their sake, come 2012 - after (maybe) having been thrown a few crumbs and (definitely) more bullshit promises - the CBC and the rest of the "faithful" will remember this bamboozle and say:

"Hopefully for their sake, come 2012, after (maybe) having been thrown a few crumbs and (definitely) more bullshit promises..."
And just like clockwork...

UPDATE/Politico - President Obama looks past debt debate to job creation:
President Barack Obama turned his attention to jobs immediately after the Senate passed a measure that raises the debt ceiling and reduces the deficit by at least $2.1 trillion, narrowly averting a government default.

"We can't balance the budget on the backs of the very people who have borne the brunt of this recession," Obama told the nation on Tuesday, pledging to fight for "new jobs, higher wages and faster economic growth." (emphasis mine)

...the "bullshit promises" begin.

"Immediately?"  Please!  He was selected THREE YEARS AGO! {SMDH}

And on another note; seems, rather than "crumbs," the Pentagon will continue to get almost the whole loaf (minus the two butt ends of course) in furtherance of empire - Tomgram: Engelhardt, Two-Faced Washington
