On any given Sunday, either Bob Schieffer, or David Gregory will "pluck my last nerve" with the line of questioning that they use interviewing pundits and political officials. Today's question by Bob Schieffer... "well, David, should Obama take part of the blame for the S&P down-grade of the United States Treasury bond" - you have got to be kidding me? I am very surprised at the questions that David Axelrod received from Bob, and the lack of a questioning of Senator Graham's position.
First of all, how can you even began to ask "Shouldn't Obama take some of the blame for the down-grade by S&P. The President bent over backwards in an attempt to bring the Tea-partied Republicans to the table. Obama said... "Let's do something big" - a four trillion dollar deficit reduction package, that a major percentage of our economist and the Congressional Budget people said was balanced and doable. It was rejected by the same people who, the week before, had proposed the same amount of money, but with no revenues.
For Senator Graham to sit there and blame this President for the chaos that Bush created; for the Republicans to say that this President is not leading - while they obstruct his ever effort to bring us out of the Recession, is unconscionable and a treasonous scheme to prevent his re-election by making it impossible for him to succeed.
My point is this... Obama has done remarkably well with two-thirds of Congress working against him, just think where we would be if they, Congress, were all giving this President the support that George W. Bush got when he incorporated the measures that put us in this fix to begin with!
America is tired of the shenanigans from the SOS (Stuck on Stupid) populating the 112th session of Congress.
