No need for lectures from a debt-saddled president

“Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally,” Mr. Obama warned. “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. America deserves better.”

All that insane tea party talk was from Mr. Obama back in his pre-hope tween years, when he was just old enough to want world peace but too young to be corrupted by the ravages of bureaucracy. And not yet drunk on the power of spending taxpayer money to tell everybody what to do.

Today, he is a washed-up, aging rock star trying to live off the good vibes of his old days. And he is hopelessly addicted to that drug he once so roundly denounced.

Now Mr. Obama warns that “economic chaos” will ensue if the debt limit isn’t raised again. He accuses anyone who disagrees with his current political position of being terrorists, arsonists and kidnappers who wish to destroy America.
