Latest Lame Democrat Talking Point: Debt Debate Will Ruin Christmas or Something

They've got today's marching orders and are running hard with it.
On MSNBC this morning, top Obama adviser David Plouffe made a similar claim, pointing out that the Boehner plan would ensure that “this whole debt ceiling spectacle” will be “repeated again a few months from now over the holidays.”

“The debt ceiling debate would ruin Christmas,” Plouffe said. He was apparently ad-libbing the line, but now it’s found its way into the White House’s official talking points.
Oh noes! John Boehner's the new Grinch!
The Boehner plan would require "all of us to go through this again before the end of the year, in the most important economic season in the country," Carney said. "At a time when people don't want to worry about whether or not their interest rates are going to go up, their mortgage payments and their car payments and their student loan bills, and their credit card payments, especially as they're buying gifts for the holidays."
Of course nobody will be buying anything since we'll be in the midst of a 500-day recession.

It's funny, though. Democrats didn't have any compunction about ruining Christmas when it came to voting for ObamaCare. So it's OK to interrupt the holidays to pass a trillion-dollar boondoggle, but finding time around the holidays to save the country from financial ruin is forbidden.

Glad at least to see the Democrats being consistent.

Charles Krauthammer showed a Time magazine tonight from the 90's with the Democrats saying the same thing back then. His point was they never come up with anything new. I can't believe all the vile things they are saying.

As you know, Christmas is just the day we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, so it’s more or less disposable here in DC. This debt limit issue could interfere with the celebrations and fundraisers scheduled to take place around August 4, a REAL Holy day, marking the birth of our true messiah.
