OK so the title of the thread was to get you to look, because he isn't the only politician to do it, but he does do it with incredible frequency.

Anyway, his latest gem was that he would veto a cut, cap and balance bill if it should reach his desk.

Isn't this the same man who has been going on about how horrible things would be if the debt ceiling isn't raised? How catastrophic things would be? If the economy would suffer so much, how can say he would veto a bill that would have to make it out of not only a Republican controlled house but a Democrat controlled Senate?

Is it because things really wouldn't be so devastating if the debt ceiling wasn't raised or is it because he would be the unweilding politician he has been painting Republicans as for the last 3 years?

It's one or the other. I wonder if some reporter has the guts to ask that question? (Yes, that was rhetorical)

He wants it raised so he can spend more money. Plus Obamacare needs funds.
