We’re all about in-depth coverage, but when it comes to political grandstanding, better to just skip to the good stuff. Here are two minutes or so each from the president and House speaker’s Monday debt ceiling speeches (during which John Boehner said it’s “not going to happen.”)
Guess that means it’s time to plan your debtpocalypse party.
It’s worth mentioning that while neither Speaker Boehner nor President Obama can find common ground (yet, anyway), each would happily agree to trillions in cuts that will almost certainly kneecap what’s left of the American economy. Tea party: 1. America: 0.
And for the thorough, the full speeches are below. —PZS
