I could not believe when I heard someone say that Obama was the only adult in this debt crisis debate. An adult is one who takes responsibility, and looks for solutions to problems. All Obama has every done is lay blame on others. First it was Bush and now it is the Republicans and Tea Party Movement. He can give his opinion on how these problems started, but cannot give you a solution to end the problem.
Also an adult works hard at his or her job. So far all Obama has done is give speeches, and run for re-election in 2012. Even when our nation is on the verge of collapse, he is planning to attend a fund raiser this week. Instead of show boating and laying blame, the President at this time needs to stay on the job. Playtime can come later.
We could argue on how all this started. Some will say Bush is the blame for every problem that we face today. Others will state that our problems have been building for many years, and now it is falling apart. I tend to believe it began with Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and the Progressive Movement. The gradual rise to big government and big spending has caught up with this generation.
Once again I will say laying blame on others will not solve our present problem. The only way it will be solved is to reduce the size of government and reduce spending. Plain and simple.
