Seems that some of the BIGGEST complainers about government debt, can't keep their own under control.

my guess is that they shouldn't be using the "checkbook" example.

Ya. I would be interested in what what kind of deals were made for the property as that is the first sweet deal to come along once elected.

Don't forget maxing ye olde credit card to pay for furnishings.

Wouldn't this fall under the category of people in glass houses throwing stones?

Oh, yeah. I was just thinking that these people must have no idea how the rest of America lives. So, they have erected this invisible barrier or isolated themselves to such an extent that they really believe that upward mobility is possible while at the same time doing everything within their power to maintain those limitations----or else they really aren't anyone special. So, they adopt some paternalistic stance instead.
