If the Politico labels Tea Party activits as “terrorists” for opposing the debt ceiling increase, does that make Barack Obama a terrorist for articulating the exact same stance in 2006?
US Senator Barack Obama (D-IL): “The fact that we’re here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. Leadership means ‘The buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”
Consistency in news reporting and analysis? Naaaahhhhh.
