At a Business Roundtable meeting today, President Obama warned Republicans to not use the debt ceiling as leverage in talks over spending cuts or entitlement cuts. Obama told business leaders they "should not accept going through" that "game" which would be a "catastrophe" for the country.
"That is a bad strategy for America, it's a bad strategy for your businesses and it's not a game that I will play," Obama said.
"I will not play that game, because we've got to break that habit before it starts," Obama later added.

Lets see how far the GOPe will bend over for this unaccomplished, indolent punk.
I'm gonna sue 0bama for stealin' my line!
We have to break the habit of being concerned about saddling ourselves with debt. He thinks increasing the debt of our nation is a game. Thanks, Mr. President.
You rascal.... you beat me while I was looking for it. I admire your intelligence.
FUBO. History is not going to be kind to you.
Is it really something to admire that I know who “Homey the Clown” is?
I’m sometimes embarrassed that the “new creation” remembers stuff from the old wine skin.
He and Bubba Klintoon already trotted out their stance last year that the President don’t need no Congress to allow him to pay whatever bills come due to the Federal Government - the Debt Ceiling is meaningless to this asshat and he will quickly show the doubters of his kingship. After all he has told everyone that he won with a MANDATE to tax the rich. All of us high information voters know that taxing the rich will keep the Feds running for EIGHT DAYS - ever hear the Won talk about that?
As long as the legislative branch actively negotiates with the president, they are abrogating their power and responsibility. Sure, the president can sign the law, or not sign the law; but allowing him to write the law makes them effectively representatives of the political parties, and not the people.
He's too stupid say this stuff. His handlers are doing his work while he watches TV and plays golf.

Ok then... I admire your ability to remember and make the connection.
This made me think though...
what American around during the 90’s WOULDN’T know the line
“Homey don’t play that”...?
“American” and “around during the 90’s”... 0bama? Maybe not.
Worry Not—All things are in God’s hands. We are One scandal away from a Biden Presidency.
And this comment is coming from the same guy who said that George Bush was unpatriotic (or words very close to that) when he wanted to raise the debt ceiling several years ago. Now, in this strange parallel universe of Obama, it’s entirely the right thing to eliminate the ceiling altogether.
Debt is not a game for adults, it is a game for children. Adults have learned to delay gratification for future rewards, children want to steal from the adults to finance immediate gratification.
At a Business Roundtable meeting today? This is the best Real Clear Politics could report? It’s all incoherent, both the article and “not use the debt ceiling as leverage”.
