Truth is Truth.
The truth is that partisanship is what got us here and it took both sides to make it. Dems have screwed us to the wall and Republicans have made sure
we got sent the bill for the drill and screws used to do it. It's really a joint effort all the way, as it's becoming clearer and clearer.
Personalities play a role, and Timmy Geithner needs some of that unemployment he's been a chief part of causing here lately. Harvard has a fine
business and economics school. Surely Obama can call on alum to serve the role with true background and education on the topic for Secretary of the
Treasury. ....If he wanted to.
This is what we get though:

President Obama and House GOP leaders promised greater efforts to step back from the partisan brink Friday, acknowledging that Washington's toxic
political climate has made it increasingly tough to tackle major problems.
The pledge was immediately called into question, however, as the two parties repeatedly expressed sharply differing viewpoints during a rare meeting
at a House Republican retreat in Baltimore.
Obama accepted an invitation from House GOP leaders to address their caucus. His speech Friday was followed by an often pointed question-and-answer
Now, It's Friday, Nov 30 2012. When would you guess that article is dated? Might it surprise you to know that was reported on events which happened in
2010? Bipartisanship worked so well...Didn't it? Both sides sounded so sincere about wanting to find it. Both sides killed it where it stood and had
the scraps for dinner or something because not a shred could be found over the past couple years.
Now it's not Health Care, it's 4 different bad things independently coming together in January to cause a 'Cliff', and the best Treasury comes up with
is more of the same same and a new twist of just doing away with those silly limits on debt spending?
Umm.. Yeah.. There are NO partisans in office who aren't to blame at some level, but there are individual people who shoulder more than others to be
sure. Geithner looks about as proper a fit in his job as that idiot Press Secretary Carney. Some changes in human resources might be a great start to
a second term.
