If I were feeling uncharitable, I might argue that Obama seems to be willing to lower the chances of getting a deal, as long as he raises the chances that the other guys get the blame. And frankly, I’m not feeling very charitable right now.
I don’t feel charitable either. In fact, I feel down right malicious. “The WON” doesn’t give a spit about whether we have jobs, or whether we lose our AAA rating. It’s all about getting re-elected and whatever will cause the sheeple to stampade to vote for HopeyChangey, well, that’s what we gotta have.
