After a while you almost get numb.
…Obama told CNBC’s John Harwood that Wall Street should be far more panicky about Republican efforts to use the debt ceiling to win concessions from the White House. I don’t blame Obama for being annoyed with Republicans for trying to use the debt ceiling the exact same way he did when he was a senator. But normally a sitting president doesn’t try to talk down the economy just to win a political point.
I know that many people on the Right continue to harbor a certain annoyance about George W Bush’s policies, and goodness knows, they have reason. But I’d still really prefer to have him in office instead of this nightmare caricature that the Democrats chose as his successor.
