I have to admit I am surprised the public has been tollerant with this type of excuse for all this time, but blaming others for the failure of the Obama Administration is not going to create the bi-partisan environment the people are demanding.
When will the President and Progressives in Congress EVER take responsibility for their own failures to get things done?
