    The Quote of the Decade:
    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
    ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

    To whit we must demand, in public forum, an answer to the simple question - why?

    Why, when the shoe is on the other foot, doesn't the "leader" correct the mistakes he previously lamented.
    Why, the press is silent. Is it corruption of the press? Or a government so overbearing that the press fears their ire?
    And finally, why do we suffer these abuses?

    I'll be surprised if Romney brings this quote up during his run for POTUS.
