I wonder if the president is secretly grateful for this debt ceiling brouhaha…

by wfgodbold

Because if the debt ceiling talks were actually resolved, instead of being extended again and again, he might have to have an opinion on Operation Fast and Furious.

And the media might actually cover it, instead of trying to ignore it, or actively covering for the government (H/T Uncle).

I don’t think the debt ceiling problem is unimportant; I just think that it provides a convenient excuse for ignoring the illegal actions the ATF has taken vis a vis Fast and Furious and straw purchases.

If I were a cynical man, I’d think that the reason Obama is unwilling to go with a small deal instead of a deal that would cover the deficit until 2013 is so that he doesn’t have to deal with debt ceiling issues in the midst of his 2012 reelection campaign.

If I were cynical.
