    It is time for the President to lead and he doesn't have a clue how to lead. He delegates responsibility and no leader can do that. They can delegate authority but not responsibility for that is his. Where is the Obama budget? Where is the Obama list of cuts? Where is any serious discussion on the debt? Oh, he had campaign appearances in Pa which were more important. He is a campaigner in chief, not the leader required to be President of the United States.

    Another perspective.

    Behind the Scenes of the Deficit Negotiations: $400B in Tax Hikes, $1T in Spending Cuts - Political Punch

    During his press conference yesterday, President Obama took an aggressive tone, saying that his daughters were better than Congress in doing their homework before the last minute. But the officials rejected the idea that somehow President Obama’s tone is an issue.

    “Every single day they’re banging the **** out of him (the president), Boehner and McConnell,” the official said, then they complain about the president’s tone. “I think it’s bull****, it’s all a ruse.”

    Senate cancels vacation but debt talks still stuck - Washington Times

    Meanwhile, the White House said Mr. Obama, who on Wednesday berated his former colleagues in Congress for taking vacations, will continue to keep up his re-election fundraising schedule because he can “walk and chew gum at the same time.”

    This is the Republican mantra. They are going to do everything they can to sabotage any possible deal, and sabotage America in the process too.

    You overlooked a couple.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    1 trillion over 10 years is 100 billion a year. 400 B in tax hikes over 10 years is no guarantee that you will get them and that adds 40 billion to the Treasury if it occurs. That does nothing to stop the deficit spending.

    Wow! I thought this was just the ramblings of some nut on a BB. The 14th itself qualifies that the debts are "authroized by law." Since Obama is not authroized to incur debt in the name of the US those debts would not be authorized by law.

    Leadership doesn't allow a leader to delegate responsibility, a leader can delegate authority but not responsibility. The Results are Obama's and unless he is willing to go back to the 2008 budget of 3 trillion instead of taking 100 billion off his 3.7 trillion budget, there can be no compromise that is worthwhile.
