3. Thanks, No Elephants. It's long past due
Edited on Mon Jan-14-13 01:45 PM by Enthusiast
that the President explained the nature of the debt ceiling to an uninformed American people. There just isn't anyone else that can do it.

Right wing propaganda has convinced their followers that raising the debt limit would be like giving the irresponsible President a unlimited credit card. This is the political brinksmanship Obama was speaking of.

What do you bet Limbaugh, Beck and Hannity will once again be characterizing raising the debt limit as a blank check for a wild spending president. You know black people never spend responsibly, Limbaugh said. :eyes:

The President can easily win this argument. He already has.
