It's one of the things I hate most about Obama -- he insists on playing the blame game. Leaders are supposed to lead ALL of the people, not blame their opponents when things don't go their way. He squandered his first two years when his party could have had what they wanted, concentrating on his monstrous healthcare bill instead of working on other problems. Then when Republicans took over the House he blamed them for obstructing him on all the other stuff he didn't get done. Maybe we should just let the "fiscal cliff" happen -- at least we would get the spending custs we'll probably no get otherwise.

We are screwed.

Statesmanship at its finest: during fiscal cliff talks, President Obama reportedly told Speaker Boehner that he would use his two major speeches in January to blame Republicans for the stalled deal. According to the Wall Street Journal, the president wasn't too happy with the options House Republicans were willing to present, and made it clear he was willing to throw the GOP under the bus for the nation's financial woes.

Mr. Obama repeatedly lost patience with the speaker as negotiations faltered. In an Oval Office meeting last week, he told Mr. Boehner that if the sides didn't...
