During today’s absurd press conference on the debt ceiling, President Obama evidently decided that we just aren’t smart enough to understand just how debt works.

You don’t go out to dinner, he said, eat all you want, and leave without paying the check:

That’s how the GOP wants to do it:

In order to simplify things for us rubes and bring things down to a level even we can understand, he compared our precarious situation to a choice between restaurants.

We’ve got to be smart about this:

Too bad Obama has such expensive tastes.

For more of our money. He needs to fund his party habit, after all.

No kidding.

    “You dont go out to dinner then don’t pay the check.”

    You don’t go out to dinner AT ALL if you have no money, have debt or have a budget deficit. No brainer.

    Is this the same Obama who took a $7.2 million Hawaiian vacation? Compared to discretionary spending like that, I don’t think my choice of restaurant in the problem here.

    Does this mean he’ll stop supplying The First Wookie with sides of $275.00/pound beef?

    But that’ll kill the refrigerated-truck industry!

    When you’re whining and stomping your feet for tax hikes, you don’t waste another $3 million of taxpayer money having to make an extra round-trip flight between DC and Hawaii bcuz you balk at cooperating with anyone to get your job done in the first place; bcuz you’re such a putz of a prezuhdunce that you refuse to follow your own advice about fiscal responsibility; bcuz you’re such a crisis ho’; bcuz you act like a major fussbudget just driving up the fussdeficit.

    Obama just last week: “We don’t have a spending problem.”

    Obama thinks everyone should be able to have all you can eat at Ruth’s Chris and only have to pay Golden Corral money.
