During an interview on The Today Show, Newt Gingrich had this to say:
The fact is, President Obama is like a teenager with a credit card.

A teenager with a credit card is likely to get only himself in trouble (yes, I know Newt is alluding to the out-of-control spending, but his metaphor dodges the issue of "who's going to pay it when the bill comes due?"). To plagiarize from a more colorful writer, Obama is like a teenager turned loose with a bottle of Wild Turkey and the keys to the Hemi. Everyone in town is going to wind up taking a hit.
