    Of course, Obama will get NONE of the blame. Kinda like a football team being 1-10, but the head coach gets no blame at all.

    Our country is ripping apart at the seams. And Obama has show NO leadership at all. Just blame rich people and let the rest take care of itself.

    He is quite possibly the worst leader, in ANY career profession, we have ever witnessed.

    It's impossible to "lead" people in congress that are effectively "nullifying" your presidency. And I am not making this up. Republican Congressional leaders have openly said they want to make President Obama a one term president. I've never heard anything like it. That's what they are working overtime to do.

    Never heard anything like it? I recall 1984 and 2004. I guess you are just deaf when your side does it, right?

    As for blaming the republicans? They offered tax increases on the super committee, the dems refused unless they got more spending.

    Find the quotes. Link them.

    I want to see where elected Democratic leaders were openly calling for either Reagan or Bush to be a one term president. I also want to see where elected Democratic congress people openly called either Reagan or Bush a liar in the halls of congress. You might want to point to where a Democratic congress person said that they wanted a particular bill to fail and become Reagan or Bush's Waterloo. And heck, find a elected Democratic leader asking for Reagan or Bush birth certificate..or making hay about their national origins.

    Go for it. And while I am not really sure what "Tax increases" they are talking about..if it was the re-patriation scheme..I can understand why it was laughed out of the Super Committee.

    Some would say that holding people accountable for their actions/failure to act is a key component of leadership.

    You obviously don't know anything about the supercommittee. For one thing, the Republicans on the committee told Obama to stay out of the talks completely because they felt it would make it too political. Obama had nothing to do with their deadlock.

    In fact, Obama proposed a 4 TRILLION deficit reduction plan, but congress wouldn't even look at it. If you think Obama is doing nothing, than you are obviously getting all of your information from Fox News.

    Well sure.

    But you see that on both sides. The new and novel thing here is that elected republicans are abandoning statesmanship and are openly echoing what FOX and talk radio has been saying. The "Failure meme" came from Rush Limbaugh. I was pretty shocked hearing it come from people like DeMint. This is very radical.

    I think they were...and are.....just not at the expense of the middle class.

    You are conveniently forgetting to mention that the "tax cuts" that you say were offered by the GOP members in the committee........were bullshit......since they were insisting that the Bush tax cuts be made permanent. I think you knew that.....and chose to be dishonest.
