The reason liberals are ignorant of economics is because they hated math and logic in school (or their teachers did). Actors and "personalities" also cut history and a few other classes, but were very popular (I'm generalizing, of course; there are exceptions). They're not necessarily evil, just ignorant or lacking in aptitude. They have other skills and aptitudes.
But that's why somebody else needs to point out that we won't be defaulting on the debt (e.g., Ron Paul).
Somebody should also point out that Obama won't "negotiate" because he took too much flak for his previous "red line" comment. Let that be a lesson to us not to tease him when he does the right thing and allows Congress to weigh in on Syria.
Sometimes politics is sooooo high school.
