This whole federal budget issue would be funny except for one thing:

The man who was elected to be the leader of the United States can’t seem to figure how to lead.  He’s great at giving speeches, running for office, spending other peoples (future) money, handing rewards out to his cronies and supporters, and blaming others for the shortfalls of his governance and the mess he has made of our economy..

But he can’t lead the other lawmakers in resolving the latest “budget/debt crisis”. The first real leadership issue he has been faced with (except, of course, “the beer summit”) and he fails. Miserably.

It’d be funny, except for the implications.
