Axelrod calls the action, in his words, "a tea party downgrade" and says it's clearly on the backs of lawmakers who were willing to see the country default to get their way.

But first out of the gate were some GOP presidential hopefuls eager to make campaign hay out of what they see as a failure of the Obama administration.

 

Both sides.  Children.  Will a real leader please show himself/herself so we actually have a chance?!!!

Finger-pointing is the best game politicians are capable of playing nowadays (like children, aren't they?:D).

... and just like children they forget:  "When a man points a finger at someone else, he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing at himself." - Louis Nizer  (1902-1994)

There are no winners - only losers - in the shameful antics going on in Washington.

It's really sad.  There's so much good hard work to be done.  Shameful and pathetic.
