Letters to the President: #915 'Meltdown'

Reporter's Note: President Obama remains embroiled in the debt ceiling talks after what looked like a very bad day for D.C.

Dear Mr. President,

Wow! What a meltdown! When you trotted out late Friday afternoon to talk about how House Speaker John Boehner walked away from your negotiations, I was really surprised. I mean, I know the situation between the two big parties is not good, but jeesh.

This feels like when you have married friends, and you know that they have been having some friction, but all of a sudden you hear that they have divorced. Well, I guess that is a little extreme, but it’s a little like that.
