My Mother, who is a fairly staunch Republican, and who I have had some disagreements over the years with, sent me an email last night that I wholly and totally agree with.  I verified it and actually found the quote in the Washington Post:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government can’t pay its own bills. … I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”

— Then-Sen. Barack Obama, March 16, 2006

Does anyone else find any discrepancy between then and now?  Seriously, if I balanced my checkbook the way our government balances “our” federal checkbook, my bank would shut me down in a heartbeat.

Tom Clancy said in an interview at one point the problem with politics is we elect idiots, that seems to make more sense than anything else when explaining politics.
