The Great Communicator

At the risk of repeating myself, here is what President Ronald Reagan wrote in his diary on Tuesday, November 1, 1983:

Last night the Repub. Sen. very irresponsibly refused to pass an increase in the debt ceiling which is necessary if we're to borrow & keep the govt. running. *** I sounded off & told them I'd veto every d--n thing they sent down unless they gave us a clean debt ceiling bill. That ended the meeting.

Too bad the current President lacks this level of gravitas, even though he is repeatedly invoking Reagan's memory now.

By all means, veto every d--n thing Congress sends down. Excellent idea.
