Now remember, don’t be confused by the facts. The debt limit crisis is the Republicans’ fault. Got it?
Now that we got that out of the way, there are reports that Obama has killed a possible debt limit deal between Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Republicans.
The GOP bill to cut spending and raise the debt ceiling, which would avert the coming default crisis, would also require at least one more debt increase before the 2012 election, and the president, working hard for re-election, does not want to deal with the issue again before November 2012. After consulting with Obama Sunday evening, Reid's willingness to work with the GOP disappeared.
The re-election of The One is so much more important than a trivial default of the United States of America, don’t you know.
If these reports end up being confirmed true, it will be interesting to see how even the “Mainstream” News Media can successfully spin any failure to raise the debt limit in time as the Republicans’ fault.
But Lord knows they will try anyway.
