Obama gets away with rank hypocrisy because the news media enable it. Yesterday he broke bad with his stance on the debt ceiling.
Yet everything he said contradicts what he said in 2006, as seen here and put to music. (There are actual video clips of this, but I spare you the nausea of actually listening to him.)
This should be a big deal, but it won’t be because the news media won’t make it one.
So here is what Speaker Boehner should do: get every member of the GOP caucus to read this quote from Obama on the floor of the House, one after another.
Make a spectacle of it.
The media will be forced to cover it, even scornfully.
But the message will get through.
