Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised how often this happens, but as with Sarah Palin, the Iraq War, and Paul Ryan’s vouchercare program, the public is coming to its senses on the debt ceiling:
When struggling to understand why Americans would oppose a debt-limit increase, many of us said the public would come around — and sanity would prevail — once they learned more about why this is important and necessary. Over the last month or so, that’s exactly what’s happened.
We shouldn’t be surprised that the public takes a little longer to arrive at the same conclusions that you and I came to immediately. I’m guessing most Americans don’t spend much of their free time obsessively reading news stories and analysis.
