"Mr. Obama never mentioned spending cuts. Never. Not once. "
What do you expect? He never will. Never has been in his options. Compromise is a one-way activity. I don't see why conservatives/Republicans should ever expect him to give an inch.
Let the whole thing go down the toilet and let the whole mess be in his lap. But wait, I'm sure he will find some way to blame it on the Republicans. So the question is, Is there truly a way for Republicans to not be blamed for whatever problem happens? Unlikely, as long as the MSM is in the tank.
