[President] Obama says he understands the fiscal challenges facing cash-strapped states and...everyone should be prepared "to give something up."

In fairness, President Obama actually made those comments while wearing a standard suit-and-tie, as shown here. Somehow, though, I doubt that I'm the only person, seeing that picture next to that headline and that quote, who immediately thought, "Oh, you have got to be kidding me..."

Well played, Associated Press via Yahoo News! Well played, indeed!
