How to solve the debt ceiling crisis in just ten minutes and one second

All that is needed is a way to force 51% of the voters - regardless of party - to watch this clip of the President's spokesman sparring with the press over the President's refusal to produce a debt reduction plan of his own.  Game over.

One major hurdle: it's really hard to watch.  Human beings are naturally empathetic, for one thing, and it is difficult to watch another human being squirming on the hook for what seems like a very long time.  For another, we have an instinctive aversion to petulant condescension.  Anyhow, watch and circulate.

Some observations about the exchange here.

Oh, and then there's this.
