President Obama spoke at length at a press conference today–just over one hour. He called on John Boehner to stop the excuses and let the House vote on the debt ceiling as well as allow a vote on a spending resolution that Reid and Boehner had already negotiated weeks ago. Speaker Boehner spoke for three minutes, and sounded reasonable, especially if your memory and attention span are so far gone that you have no idea what he was saying a week or two ago.
