Obama is no better. He could have chosen to push for tax reform -- lower rates, no loopholes -- to attract bipartisan support and kick-start the economy. Instead, he apparently decided that he has a better chance at winning re-election by failing to pass a jobs package -- with a bill-killing millionaire surtax -- and then blaming the state of the economy on naysaying Republicans. Finger-pointing won the White House in 2008, so he's sticking with the formula.

I'd like to see a GOP nominee who could do better. I would like a Republican who also could govern.
