    WEll: you Republicans and Tea Partyers got your wish, getting America and President Obama to look bad at any cost. What you fail to understand is that President Obama had nothing to do with what happened with the balance budget that the Political kids couldn't in order. It's so Dam easy to tax the richest people a little more to help out, who kissing whos BUTT her. Rich people and corporation pay very little, so in your words, keep on screwing the middle class and the poor. It's a Dam shame Republicans are wiling to sink America and make their own Country to protect the Rich people and corporations in America.
