Obama totally clueless about debt crisis

What stunned House Speaker John Boehner more than anything else during his prolonged closed-door budget negotiations with Barack Obama was this revelation: "At one point several weeks ago," Mr. Boehner says, "the president said to me, 'We don't have a spending problem.' "
... 
Why has the president been such an immovable force when it comes to cutting spending? "Two reasons," Mr. Boehner says. "He's so ideological himself, and he's unwilling to take on the left wing of his own party." That reluctance explains why Mr. Obama originally agreed with the Boehner proposal to raise the retirement age for Medicare, the speaker says, but then "pulled back. He admitted in meetings that he couldn't sell things to his own members. But he didn't even want to try."
...
There is much more.

How can the President be so disengaged from reality?  No wonder he maxed out his credit cards at one point.  He does not even think about how he is going to pay off our existing debt, much less what he wants to add to it.  This man is dangerously delusional and so are those who support him.  If they cannot comprehend the debt crisis they have helped create, no wonder they are incompetent to negotiate a deal involving it.
