    Obama says he will deal on budget, not on debt limit

    (Reuters) - President Barack Obama, in an interview broadcast on Sunday, blamed conservative Republicans for a stalemate on the budget and insisted that while he is willing to haggle over taxes and spending, he will not make a deal would that would impose conditions on increasing the nation's debt limit.
    Translation -- I can do the smoke-and-mirrors thing on spending and taxes endlessly, but everyone knows I will end up increasing spending more than I increase taxes ...... so there's no way I will agree to any deal that does not increase the national debt limit! I need to keep spending more and more to buy votes for 2014 and then 2016 ..... and to have any shot at keeping ObamaCare afloat!
