Today’s twitter town hall with the president should probably not be repeated. In retrospect, we should have known in advance that allowing people only 140 characters to ask questions but President Obama unlimited time for responses would end up with Obama simply propagandizing — and that’s exactly what happened. Most of his answers were indistinguishable from DNC talking points, and no new areas were covered.
One quote, though, sums up Obama’s leadership on the debt issue so far. In response to a question about the debt ceiling, Obama said that “The debt ceiling should not be something that is used as a gun against the heads of the American people to extract tax breaks for corporate jet owners, for oil and gas companies that are making billions of dollars because the price of gasoline has gone up so high.” [Emphasis added.]
I think that quote speaks for itself.
At another point in the event, Obama called a straightforward question submitted by John Boehner (“Where are the jobs?”) “slightly skewed.” I guess he should know.
