    Well no, congress is not blameless by any stretch of the imagination. I did not mean to imply otherwise. Point of fact, I don't think who is to blame is important at this point, it is who is going to do something about it, and I don't see any one who will right now.

    Damn... I never thought I would see the day that I'd agree with you twice in a row.

    Who to blame is all important at this point... how will you know who to fire if you don't first fix the blame for the stupid act you are going to fire someone for?

    Don't get me wrong, the pink slips need to be extensive, in all 3 branches of government, and neither political party is blameless.

    Most Presidents spend more their first year than any other - the economy is growing, plus inflation. Big deal.

    Plus Obama had a massive bailout (handed to him by Bush) and a stimulus thrown in.
