    Dirt ball America finally gets interested in politics.

    I hope Bush and Cheney are off stage waiting to accept responsibility for their part in this fiasco. Boehner, Pelosi, McConnell, and Reid should also be part of it. This is a two party catastrophe where the Republican tribe and Democrat Tribe have done all they can to make the other side look bad and in doing so, have done great harm to the citizens and states they vowed to protect from all enemies, “foreign and domestic.”
    We cannot move forward until we accept harm has been done by both sides and then, putting aside the social issues on which we cannot agree, move forward on the myriad important issues on which we can agree.

    Nice try but Obama single handedly created this mess. He multiplied the deficit by 10 in under 4 years, racking up a deficit higher than all the other presidents in the last 39 years combined.

    It wasn’t until after Obama was inaugurated the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2002 to 2008 were acknowledged and accepted. Prior to that, Cheney told us deficiets didn’t matter. There was never a single dollar ‘budgeted’ in the Bush budgets for our wars, they were simply ‘acceptable costs’. Under Obama, who has substantially added to the deficiet, the Republicans have added to our financial woes through many actions and many more inactions. If half the people in the bucket line don’t care about putting out the fire, your house will be burn down. I’d love to meet you at the coffee shop and play dueling information sources with laptops at four paces…or the other side of the coffee table. I’m willing to have my mind changed if I can trust the sources. How about you?

    “I hope Bush and Cheney are off stage waiting to accept responsibility for their part in this fiasco”.

    I’m in full agreement with this post.

    How dare you sound like a voice of reason? Both parties? You mean just because both parties increase the size of government and increase spending they have to be held accountable? OMG, what a contemptuous thought, that politicians of either ilk are so enamored with themselves that their arrogance has compromised our world position and almost bankrupted the country? Shocking, just shocking!!!
    Welcome to my world, a non-partisan position based on details of grand electoral plans and a performance record that substantiates their claims. Being an independent is hard…

    I agree with your thought that every president should be willing to take responsibility for their actions. And I would add that the people in charge of the purse strings should also take a step forward.

    Here is a simple article that may cause you to think about how to assign blame. As you look at it compare who was the president and which party had control of house and senate.

    All bills that cost are to be written in the house.

    The senate then reviews and edits those bills and sends them back for approval or additional edits.

    When passed they go to the president for his veto or signature.

    Or at least that is how it is supposed to work.

    I totally agree with your post. I tend to write long comments and am grateful for yours. Our legislature has been awful/offal in the way they have conducted the people’s business over the last 12+ years. Thank you for your reply.

    I am disappointed at Holbert, I normally like him. I do not watch Jerry Springer and no one I know does either. I don’t even think I have channel surfed by him in some time, is he still even on.
