    (AP) WASHINGTON -- The White House said Monday that President Barack Obama regrets his vote as a senator in 2006 against raising the debt limit - a vote he's now pressuring Congress to take.

    Obama "thinks it was a mistake," presidential spokesman Jay Carney told reporters. "He realizes now that raising the debt ceiling is so important to the health of this economy and the global economy that it is not a vote that, even when you are protesting an administration's policies, you can play around with."

      front, in the thousands and tens of thousands, for as long as it takes:

      out in front of the Capitol;
      on the Mall;
      out in front of RNC offices,;
      out in front of K Street house;
      out in front of every Republican legislator's district office and home;
      out in front of Abraham Lincoln's Memorial;
      out in front of Chamber of Commerce offices;
      out in front of newpaper offices and tv networks who do not cover the story properly.

      This is the time, folks, for mass demonstrations, against the Repugs and their complicit allies.
