    Good point. Been a while since any politician, let alone the president, has accepted blame for anything. Wonder when people will stop accepting the BS and start holding politicians responsible regardless of party affiliation.

    As long as we see it as my team versus yours, I doubt much will change.

    Unbelievably believable.

    Liberals are wildly incapable of accountability. But....I guess that's what makes them liberals in the first place.
