Time for a little Saturday morning comedy from Barack Obama. Problem is, nobody's laughing.
Obama sounded a positive note about negotiations over raising the federal government's debt limit.A decade of racking up deficits and debts? Uh, more like 30 months. But nice try and thanks for playing.
"The good news is, we agree on some of the big things," he said. "We agree that after a decade of racking up deficits and debt, we finally need to get our fiscal house in order."
Seems to me when he speaks of shared sacrifice he's talking about the GOP sacrificing their campaign pledges to go along with him.
Used to be everyone laughed at his jokes. It appears these days the laughter has died, along with his political future.
