From the White House to Congress, the negotiations over raising the U.S. debt limit have overshadowed or halted work on everything from job creation to the military conflict in Libya to education reform. And the debt debate has hamstrung President Barack Obama's ability to hit the road to campaign and raise money for his re-election bid.
The frenetic pace of Washington often means what is news one day can fade to the background the next. But rarely does a singular issue suck up so much of the oxygen for such a sustained period.
Well I disagree with the "singular issue sucking up oxygen", last year we had, Don't Ask Don't Tell, Unemployment Extensions, Bush Era Tax Extensions and it's sucked the life out of Washington then. However, I think it's by design, they waste all their time on these issues, and nothing gets done to finally end the recession, create jobs and help the Unemployed and 99ers, really help.
