We have such a mature president… no, not really.
Via Washington Examiner:
President Obama on Thursday hammered congressional Republicans for refusing to increase the nation’s borrowing capacity unless the White House agrees to spending cuts, using another economic speech outside Washington to accuse his GOP foes of getting in the way of job growth.
“Threatening that you won’t pay the bills in this country — when we’ve already racked up those bills — that’s not an economic plan,” Obama said at the Jacksonville Port Authority in Florida. “That’s just being a deadbeat.”
Obama traveled to Jacksonville to press for more infrastructure spending. But the more glaring message behind the presidential trip was the not-so-subtle warning he gave to House Republicans right before their August recess and with bruising budget battles expected in the fall.
