CBS News’ Mark Knoller was tweeting from President Obama’s 20th pivot to the economy today. The president met with business CEOs and made a few remarks, before kicking reporters out of the room as he continued to talk with those invited business leaders. Knoller has a very good memory.

The “reckless game” is resisting raising the national debt ceiling again. The president himself has harshly criticized Republicans this week, on Monday as the Navy Yard killer was on his rampage, over that issue.


So, using Obama’s own remarks and actions as a guide, as a senator, Obama played a “reckless game.” Or, he is a failed leader now.
