More Of Obama's Mad Diplomatic Skillz...

... wresting "violent agreement" from the gaping jaws of sovereign self interest:

Despite the seeming division between the United States' deficit-reduction target and the slower approach favored by Canada and Germany, Obama said there was "violent agreement" within the group about the need to find proper balance -- with some highly indebted countries such as Greece needing to cut immediately and others supporting the recovery with higher spending.

I don't know about you all, but the Editorial Staff are feeling violently hopeful this morning.

Look out -- Obama's about to redefine "deficit reduction" as "more spending".

Somebody probably told Obama he would come across as a stronger leader if he would use phrases like "kick ass," "violent agreement," etc.

No need, unless you try to parody "Watchtower."

I spent entirely too much time in one once, with entirely too little ammo...
