This week President Obama is burning jet fuel in earnest as he seeks to avoid the sequester that he created. Totally ignored in this debate are his own words from 2006. The Washington Post reported President Obama’s own opposition to raising the debt limit.
See the article: “Annotating Obama’s 2006 speech against boosting the debt limit” http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/post/annotating-obamas-2006-speech-against-boosting-the-debt-limit/2013/01/14/aa8cf8c4-5e9b-11e2-9940-6fc488f3fecd_blog.html
If it is indeed true that your own words come back to haunt you, perhaps House Republicans would do well in using this quote from him. Have they ever considered that idea? Nah, that would make too much sense.
