It's time for your daily teleprompted brainwashing. Frontal lobes: out.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” …….. Senator Barack Obama

I'm sure Barry is just as pissed as the rest of us because it takes away his time from the golf course. And furthermore, the more time he has to educate us plebs, the worse his handicap becomes.

Meanwhile, locust like swarms of private jets are seen heading from the U.S. towards Paraguay.

Nothing like being fashionably late to a debt ceiling address.  "The address starts at 10:20?  Okay, I'll be there at 10:35."

Go Obama go...

Dr. Impossible's picture

Does he admit the P.O.T.U.S. is a failed office and then disolve it, and all its compononts,  to the hands of Congress?

magpie's picture

Cdad's picture

Show us your teeth, President Obama.  It is time for the nation to see who you really are.

g's picture

He's toothless.

Cdad's picture

Toothless?  You have not been paying attention.  The damage he has done and can continue to do to this nation is enormous.  Watch as the divider does his work in the midst of this chaos.

g's picture

I will concede that point.

TheFourthStooge-ing's picture

He's sackless.

There, I fixed it for you.

Will POTUS use a last minute 14th Amendment play at this news conference as authority to raise the ceiling on his own?  And what would that do to the markets? Strange times indeed.....

rsnoble's picture

I've had enough for one day and will be shutting this "highway to hell" machine off.  LOL, that's what my grandma calls the PC.
