Roger’s Rules

A new era of responsibility?

The latest from the folks who brought you a “new era of responsibility” and the promise of unprecedented “transparency” in government:

“Behind closed doors and with no cameras present, President Obama signed into law Friday afternoon the bill raising the public debt limit from $12.394 trillion to $14.294 trillion.”

A trillion here, a trillion there, pretty soon you’re talk about real bankruptcy, Senator Dirksen.

More and more, I believe, the burning question with which the Obama administration confronts us is this: Will he and his colleagues damage the country beyond repair before the voters, roused from their dogmatic slumbers, realize what is happening and throw them out? I wish I were more confident that the answer was no.
