Let see how this works…
Obama promises to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term and doesn’t = GOP fault.
Obama submits budgets that can’t garnish a single vote from Democrats or Republicans =GOP fault
Democrats control House and Senate in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and run up record deficits =GOP fault
Democrats haven’t passed a budget since April 29, 2009 =GOP fault
Obama adds close to $6 trillion to the national debt = GOP fault
GOP only controls the House as Democrats control the Senate and White House. Doesn’t matter = GOP fault
Get the picture?
From NBC News:
If the U.S. government ends up careening off the “fiscal cliff,” Republicans in Congress stand to shoulder most of the blame, according to a new poll released Tuesday.
A majority of Americans said in a new, post-election poll that they do not expect President Barack Obama and members of Congress to reach an agreement to avoid the effects of the fiscal cliff, the combination of automatic spending cuts and tax hikes set to take effect at the beginning of the year.
Fifty-three percent of Americans said Republicans in Congress would be more to blame in that instance, according to a Pew Research Center poll conducted in the days following the election. Twenty-nine percent said that Obama would be more to blame, while 10 percent said both the president and Republicans would share blame.
