Bob Woodward’s latest book does not paint a very confident picture of Barack Obama after nearly four years in the White House. His column in today’s WaPo outlines the struggle between the Republican-led House and Obama over the debt ceiling. But, you know, it has all been political blood on the Congressional republicans’ hands…
However, there is hope. Obama is always the political diplomat, stating he is more than willing to reach across the aisle if republicans agree to raising taxes.
And as we all are dragged along this insane game of jobless economic chutes and ladders the United States has fallen to 7th place in global competitiveness because of our debt and deficits.
We would like to say Obama has phoned it in, but apparently he has trouble with phones as well.
