Overall, he puts himself above the fray: this debt crisis has nothing to do with him. He didn't rack up this debt with an ineffectual stimulus, or a GM bailout, or Obamacare, or this Libyan misadventure. It's all those awful Congressional Republicans who refuse to break their promises to the very voters who sent them to Washington.
And one more time: why didn't Obama and his Democratic buddies cram through a tax hike when they had a filibuster-proof majority in Congress? Why haven't they submitted a budget, as required by law, to plan the tax and spending of the nation? In other words, where's the leadership? Oh, but it's those other guys who are intransigent and irresponsible. Pitiful.
