Bankruptcy: National and Presidential

There he goes again:

WASHINGTON — President Obama on Saturday implored Congress to provide more aid to states and cities to blunt “the devastating economic impact of budget cuts” by local governments that imperil the jobs of teachers, the police, firefighters and other public employees.

In a letter to Democratic and Republican Congressional leaders, Mr. Obama said the “mounting employment crisis” in the states “could set back the pace of our economic recovery.”

I think we can lay to rest the idea that Obama is some kind of post-partisan, deep thinker of new ideas. To Obama, every problem in the world can be solved by applying either his superior personality, or great gobs of other people’s money.

And it’s just not true and it’s got to stop.
