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.
