    Obama said he'd cut the deficit in half. More fodder for the upcoming campaign ads from Republicans. Should be some really interesting ones this go-round. Well, unless you're a dimocrat.

    It's a legit criticism of Obama. However, I give just as much blame, if not more, to Congress for this failure.
