When the going gets tough
The tough get going……
Out of town, that is.
Gold ($1461)and oil ($123) hit new highs
Government shutdown looms
Hilariously, the guy who said “I won” now says negotiations cannot be “my way or the highway.”
Obama says “See ya!”
Obama’s team may not include the president himself. Despite the impasse in Washington over federal spending, the president as of early Wednesday was scheduled to give two speeches outside of Washington: one on energy in the Philadelphia suburbs, then another Wednesday evening to a group of black political activists in New York.
But here’s the best part….
If the schedule remains intact, it will be the president’s first trip outside the capital since he officially declared Monday he will seek a second term. And while Obama (D) and his aides have repeated said he will not focus on his campaign in the next few months, his schedule may contradict those words.
Holy Moly! It’s Obama’s first trip out of Washington since Monday! Those WaPo people probably also love the crease in Obama’s pants.
Katy, bar the door!
