BillCo: Well, it doesn't really help that the President of the United States, who should be trying to bring together the political parties, is blaming the Republicans for everything from the Lindbergh kidnapping to meteorites hitting the earth.

Obama, the great divider.

netcentric: I commend the WH for having the President go to Capitol Hill Wed. to meet with Congress.
7 minutes he spent.    About the exact time required for a photo-op.    Amirite?


/spent more time threatening journalists


Are you sure you put enough white space in your comment? I think you need more white space.

BilltheThrill: It is remarkable that when two people exhibit the slightest bit of loosidity, you all immediately think that it is one person playing a trick on you.  The only one tricking you is your usurping messiah, and he's got you on teh hook bad.

Try some new material. Preferably something this side of 2008.

That is one, long concern troll piece, laden with "Both sides are bad," and a sprinkling of, "this is bad news...for Obama."

They may be right about that -- at least in the short run -- but even if they are, where will that get the White House? If the GOP is dragged to the negotiating table, will that lead to a so-called Grand Bargain? Will any resulting deal short-circuit the other pending disruptions: a vote on the regular budget March 27, another debt ceiling vote this summer? Will it do anything to ease the gridlock that has turned Washington into a never-ending standoff?

Or will it just make the atmosphere all the more toxic, resentful and angry?


And later...

These points are near and dear to the hearts of White House spinners. They make it abundantly clear that the president has not been a bad actor on deficits and budgets and that he is not solely, or necessarily even primarily, to blame for the mess we are in.

But all of this furious spinning and blame-placing misses the point. The president and his people can either keep piling up points in a game they have already won, or figure out a way forward at a time when the rest of the world increasingly is inclined to doubt American leadership for a host of other reasons.

No one claims to know what that way forward is. But "Forward" was Obama's winning campaign slogan. So that is the situation we are in.


Oh those poor, poor Republicans who pinned everything on defeating Obama and lost. Those poor entitled, privileged bastards bereft of ideas and anything other than opposition for opposition's sake.

Summary of the article:  "Obama is acting rationally, and is willing to make concessions in the best interests of the country.  But that means it's his fault the Repbulicans are disorganised and refusing to do anything productive.  I have no idea if its even possible to solve this, but Obama needs to do it somehow."

the Pentagon?

Blaming the troops?  I knew this was coming, just not so quickly.



Wait, troops determine the economic policy in the Pentagon?

Um, no.  Dem representatives and the President continually underestimate the GOP's willingness to let destructive things happen to the country, despite the GOP's best efforts to scream their intentions from the roof-tops.  The rest of us are left wondering if the Dems just intentionally let them do it.

To be fair, you cannot blame Obama for a lack of leadership, when he has none to begin with.  Since everyone in Washington knows he does not legitimately hold the Office of President of the United States of America, no one pays any attention to him and his empty suit.  The real culprit here is teh Democratic party, which won a narrow victory in November through shady voting practices by the coastal elites and illegal immigrants, and are now acting like they have cart blounche to spend this country into oblivia.

If your looking for someone to blame, blame the group that wants to spend money we don't have on things we don't need.

I know, right? Remember when McConnell said that their number one goal was to make Obama an effective unifier, and Obama gave them the finger? Jeez, what's that guy's problem?
