    The super committee has failed.
    And it is both unconscionable and unfortunately easily predictable. They have completely missed a great opportunity to find middle ground in a partisan way...but instead yesterday appeared on talking head shows and blamed the other guy.

    They should all resign from their seat. The have failed their duty and every citizen in this country.

    As for the President. He has categorically failed to be a leader. He is AWOL. He has chosen to be absent because he wants to blame it on congress rather than risk his own election.
    Shame on him. He has also neglected his duty and his office.
    He should publicly apologize and inform the world that he will not seek re-election.

    According to author Durham W. Ellis, this is what historian Alexander Tyler said about the fall of the Athenian Republic:

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy ….

    If we had a leader, he would come out and state


    NO DEAL IS NOT AN OPTION. CONGRESS WILL CONTINUE WORKING THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS

    That's of course, if he cared.

    Congress should be free to create their own committees, like the Gang of Six. We shouldn't let them roll over and die. This is their country and they have a job to do.

    Why do you think he created the Super Committee ... so he can blame it on them !!
    The leader is supposed to lead and instead he pushes important issues off on other unqualified individuals that ALL should be fired.
