Turnaround

 

In amazing and thoughtful turnaround, President Barack Obama used his first encounter at the G20 summit to speak out against increased debt spending.

"I have to tell the Prime Minister that I agree with Daniel Hannon," the US President told the press corps flatly. "You cannot spend your way out of debt. It's taken me a bit to put my arms around the idea, but when you put pencil to paper, there it is."

Lawmakers back in Washington were shocked at the unexpected change of heart. Republicans embraced the clarity of his tone and said that it was really the first time Obama had reached out to them at all. Congressional leaders Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, on the other hand, wondered how the president intended to proceed.

"This obviously goes against everything the White House has committed to us. We'll certainly talk more about this when the president returns," the Speaker of the House said.

President Obama told reporters later, "Someday, future generations will have to pay this money back. It's irresponsible to pass that debt on to our children. Sasha and Malia mean the world to me. I won't let that happen to them and their generation."

If only... April Fools, everyone.
