Pres. Obama “Deflector-in-Chief”

President Obama held a quick press conference yesterday where he gave an update of the continuing negotiations on raising the debt limit. As with every speech he gives, he pushed the blame on others while pretending he never supported their beliefs in the past. Case in point:

“Now, I’ve heard reports that there may be some in Congress who want to do just enough to make sure that America avoids defaulting on our debt in the short term, but then wants to kick the can down the road when it comes to solving the larger problem of our deficit. I don’t share that view. I don’t think the American people sent us here to avoid tough problems. That’s, in fact, what drives them nuts about Washington, when both parties simply take the path of least resistance. And I don’t want to do that here.”

This is the same President who just a couple months ago called for a clean increase in the debt ceiling. Isn’t that “kicking the can down the road?”
