QOTD: "I'm asking myself if we have ever had, as I listen to it, and I'm not exaggerating, I'm asking, in my lifetime, have we ever had a more dishonest president? I mean, with all due respect, what he just said about the debt limit is... Well, I don't know how to characterize it. It was dead wrong. This is a man who voted twice against raising the debt ceiling when he was a senator. He did it once in March of 2006 and again in September of 2007. So it obviously can't be a crime against humanity. Now, what he said was that -- and he reiterated it. He said (paraphrasing), "Just because we raise the debt limit doesn't mean we're gonna go into more debt. The Republicans want you to believe that that's what we're gonna do." And he said, "If we don't raise the debt limit, we will not be able to pay our bills." And Warren Buffett has called that a nuclear bomb, and he quoted a couple of other people.

I'm telling you, don't take my word for it. He's lying. Or let me say it a different way. He's wrong. That is so incorrect. We will not default with the debt limit where it is. It's not even possible, folks. Every month the federal government collects income and other tax revenue, and the amount of revenue that the government collects every month is much more than is needed to pay our bills, and paying our bills is essentially paying the interest on the debt. That's it. And we have the money to do that, whether the debt limit changes or not, and he is just making it up when he tells people otherwise.

This was really bad. It was really, really bad. And here's a guy who voted twice against raising the debt limit when he was a senator, 2006 and 2007. And he did it to try to shut down the war in Iraq, in one instance. I forget what the other reason was. In both instances he called Bush all kinds of names. He called him irresponsible and any other number of things for wanting to raise the debt limit. This is not how you run a government, he said. This is irresponsible." --Rush Limbaugh, "The Most Dishonest President Ever?">
