    Congress hasn't been responsible either, but the fact remains that Obama has spent recklessly and shown little desire to enact any substantial spending cuts.

    You're trying to greatly simplify things, as usual. Congress and the President were doing nothing in 2007 too, and we got a financial collapse.

    And it hasn't been do-nothing. There was that stimulus package, and that auto bailout - you noticed that the automakers are profitable again, not completely gone, right?

    FALSE.

    Obama has not "spent recklessly." He doesn't have the power to spend. Only Congress does that. Nor can he enact anything.

    Exactly.

    So stop blaming Obama for spending.

    Those aren't correlated. Congress having "done something" in 2007 would not have changed our predicament. There was no way to fix things by that point. It was too late.

    Someone should have "done something" when Gramm-Leach-Bliley was on its way to Bill Clinton's desk.

    Why? Because he's not the only one involved?

    Why don't you stop defending him at every turn?

    Thanks for highlighing your inability to point to where Obama is responsible for 4.6 trillion worth of debt.
