You Heard The President!!! You Heard The President??? I'm Sick to My Libertarian Stomach.

Debt ceiling deadlines may come and they may go, but the biggest fear I have is political propaganda. Here's a quick shot of your president hard at work behind the scenes trying to get anything the Republicans in the House put forward to fail:

Tweet from Official Barack Obama account:
The time for putting party first is over. If you want to see a bipartisan #compromise, let Congress know. Call. Email. Tweet. —BO

Followed within minutes by this tweet:
You heard the President. So here's what we're doing: throughout the day we'll post the Twitter handles of GOP lawmakers in each state.
If you're not feeling something wrong in the pit of your stomach, read that again, or better yet, I'll read it for you: You heard the President.

These two tweets were then followed by twenty tweets with GOP Representatives and Senators with more coming every few minutes.

So first he plays it coy today trying to grimace his way into getting the American people to believe he is sincerely trying to fix something that it is obvious he doesn't fully understand. Then, on his official Twitter page he allows people who work for him in the White House to speak to the American people as if they are children, while he is working in a backdoor way to defeat the work of the only branch of government that has put any effort into fixing the problem.

If you're not outraged, don't bother complaining about the problems with the Federal government, we've all got much bigger problems.
