I just finished watching the President's news conference. He was asked about the debt and deficit measures being debated in Congress. He said the Congresspersons needed to be leaders and likened their poor performance on doing their jobs to the stellar performance of day early completion of the homework his young daughters have consistently accomplished. A reporter said that was impressive he agreed and then said that they don't procrastinate and then have to pull all-nighter's adding Congress knows what they have to do. The issues surrounding the debt and deficit both in the long and short term have been well defined and that the Congresspersons should be leaders and make the hard decisions now as there was no reason to wait until the August 2 deadline except for selfish political gamesmanship.
