Breaking: Barack Obama Admits that He is a Failed Leader
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.
Through an unnamed official, the WH says "some Republicans in Congress are playing a reckless game ...for an ideological agenda."— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 18, 2013
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.
In remarks on the Senate Floor on March 16, 2006, Sen. Obama said the need to raise the Debt Limit was "a sign of leadership failure."— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 18, 2013
Sen Obama said the need to raise the Debt Limit was another reflection of the "Government's reckless fiscal policies."— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 18, 2013
Denouncing the ever-increasing National Debt, then-Sen. Obama told the Senate he would oppose an increase in the Debt Limit.— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) September 18, 2013
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.
