Presidential irony

I got this in an email and thought about it. It seems that his thoughts have shifted another way. I am not for or against him but this seems so ironic that this is still a present problem today as it was in 2006 and his views have really changed.

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.”

He's come on tv later and was asked about this. He said it was just the views of a freshman senator not understanding the whole situation. Plus, this was when W. was really pushing his ______ agenda and being a ______.

I absolutely do agree though, the whole budget and tax systems need to be reexamined for equality, fairness (for the betterment of all), and growth.

Last night, The Daily Show had a great line about changing the word "rich" to "job creators".
