President Obama was back in front of the cameras and teleprompter again this afternoon to provide a chirpy update on the debt limit negotiations.
He waved his pom-poms for the emerging Gang of Six or Seven talks and commanded political opponents to “put aside their differences” and “talk turkey.”
What we need is government to go COLD turkey on its bottomless spending binges.
For those of us who have watched the last trio of vague, demagoguery-clogged Obama pressers, he IS the talking turkey.
Fitting that the creature he invokes in these trillion-dollar spending discussions is the one that goes “Gobble, gobble.”
Does this fit the bill for you?
If not, make your voices heard: Congressional switchboard number – 202-224-3121.
On the House side, rules government debate over Cut/Cap/Balance plan are underway with several hours of debate anticipated.
