Where is Obama's "balanced" approach???

Slick. Real slick.
Got caught in another lie (complete with a mis-quote this time) and you just gloss right over it. Because the president actually wants Congress to PAY FOR things it already SPENT MONEY on--that makes Obama a Dictator. Go figure.
(This makes your absurd inane comparison to the average family even worse--Besides NEVER being in debt (like a mortgage) Now--Are families supposed to deliberately bounce checks? Or are they obligated to pay for what the bought?? What a tool.)
As for the Teabaggers; of course they caused the last Debt Ceiling Crisis. "one Senate Republican sent a strong message to the Tea Party block in the House and Senate that are still withholding their support: get on board.
Senator John McCain’s, R-AZ., message was in particular aimed at those who are withholding their support for any debt ceiling bill – Republican or Democratic – holding the Balanced Budget Amendment passage as a precondition to the debt limit increase.
“To hold out and say we won't agree to raising the debt limit until we pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the constitution. It’s unfair, it's bizarre,” McCain railed on the Senate floor, “And maybe some people have only been in this body for six or seven months or so really believe that. Others know better."
McCain called this “amazing,” foolish” and “deceiving” that some members believe that this can happen, now with only 6 days left until the nation defaults on its debts with the August 2 deadline for action looming.
"The aftermath of the debt-ceiling crisis caused the Tea Party, which was seeing its support somewhat wane prior to the crisis to lose support among many Americans as many House Republican supporters of the movement opposed raising the debt ceiling under any circumstances, while others were reluctant in supporting the raising of the debt ceiling. In a poll taken shortly after the deal was signed by the President, 40 percent of Americans held an unfavorable view of the movement, with only 20 percent supporting it. In a September 27 poll taken by CNN and the ORC International, 53 percent of Americans polled held a negative view of the Tea Party, with just 28 percent supporting it" (wiki)
And that was LAST YEAR. This week Congress ended up with a 82% Disapproval rate. I'm sure that's Obama's fault too.

Do you have a pathological need
to twist and misquote EVERYTHING? It would appear so. For the entire time you and I have been disagreeing on virtually everything, you have SELDOM described or quoted ANYTHING accurately.
You're a pitiful human being. Must suck to be you.
