Oh that's not fair to Obama. Bush created the debt he's struggling with. (I called the "Fiscal Cliff", the Bush Republicans Cliff, as it was their time bomb they set off). Plus the republicans have refused to help him raise revenue to address the debt by paying even just SOME of their fair share of taxes. They'd rather America go in the sh**er, and they've said so. Blaming the opposition for the after effects of what awful things they've done with adding staggering amounts of debt is just what the republicans do. Not an opinion, fact.
