If that's true, then there's zero hope, as there's no cure for idiocy.

Speaking of which, here's what he said just five years ago:
"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 US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America ’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
- SENATOR BARACK H. OBAMA, MARCH, 2006
I agree, Senator Obama -- Any effort to raise America's debt limit most certainly is a failure of leadership, and American's most certainly do deserve better. If I may be so bold, be a good leader and step down. Let someone far more qualified to be President take the helm in 2012. Thanks.
