I have a lot of trouble with this "let's jump and blame Obama" phiolosophy. First of all, we now the media won't ever blame the Dems, second it's not only the idiots that voted for O that will be hurt, but all Americans.
It's the equivalent of parents trying to teach their little kid not to play with matches by locking the whole family in the house, letting the kid start the house on fire, and then letting the whole family burn to death. That'll teach that little fire-bug!
Maybe most important is that Boehner and a lot of his cronies were equally responsible in designing the 'fiscal cliff' in 2011. They showed no guts then, so why expect something different now?
