Debt problem a failure of leadership

February 13, 2013 

I have been trying to figure out for some time now what the problem is with our current president. Leave it to the president to tell me what is wrong with him (and I am thankful).

The president says he will not negotiate on cutting spending as part of raising the debt ceiling, but he voted against raising the debt ceiling as a United States senator, saying that to increase the debt ceiling constituted a sign of leadership failure.

So thank you, Mr. President, for telling us that the problem with America today is that we have a leader that is a failure.

To further the problem the people elected to serve in the Senate and House of Representatives are not as smart as sixth graders! At least sixth graders realize that if your income is $5,000 per month you can’t spend $10,000 per month!
