"We are not out here trying to use this as a means of doing all these really tough political things. I would rather be talking about stuff that everybody welcomes like new programs or the NFL season getting resolved."
All that welcoming of new programs by Barack and his pals is what got us into this mess in the first place, but he apparently has a hard time making the connection with actually paying for it - kind of like a shop-a-holic with a credit card. Maybe he ought to stop sniffing around the NFL locker rooms and try a little reading:
“Socialism works only until you run out of other people’s money.” - Margaret Thatcher
Begone, Barack, and the sooner the better.
