[CBS' senior White House correspondent, Bill Plante]:
"... But it's safe to say that in the absence of a real debt deal, which of course they'd like to have, this administration couldn't be happier that this is failing, because they will try to blame it all on Republicans going into the election year."

With the super committe, as with Obama's "jobs" bill, Obama will now run against Congress - the GOP part.
And Obama will say that Dems in the Senate must obstruct the GOP House, because GOP ideas don't work and won't help the economy.
Obama knows all... /sarc.
Pubs.. Fail.. again.
Could say it was epic even.
Our disgusting media, can't even use the proper pronoun...
It is no secret that Obama was awol when it came to showing leadership during the super committee talks. And, actually, more than one Dem was angry with Obama being awol.
Gee, I thought the plan for intentional failure was obvious to everyone from the get-go.
That’s how Lord ‘Bama rolls.
They failed when they refused to shut down the government, this is just the echo of a spineless mass hitting the floor. America will suffer greatly because we sent Republicans to the congress instead of leaders.
Problem is, is that several Dems in the House and Senate are vulnerable and are getting nervous at the strategy Obama is using.
I think too many people are congratulating Obama on his “Do-Nothing Congress” approach to re-election. With such an obvious strategy on display this far out, how much mileage is it going to have? All the Republican candidate has to say is “You say Congress can’t do anything while you’re there, so what’s going to change with you winning re-election?”
The folks who were going to vote for Obama aren’t going to vote Republican in congressional races, but Independents will want to kick him out just because they want something to change.
The MSM are so pleased they can see this obvious strategy. That doesn’t mean it’s going to be effective. I don’t see how that’s going to work with Obama’s basic unpopularity outside of the leech base.
I think this will massively backfire on Obama and the Democrats, PROVIDED THE REPUBLICANS START TALKING TRASH ABOUT THE DEMOCRATS - come on, MAKE JOKES!
John Boehner: You know, Obama gets all mad that we wont do what he says, well he gets mad on the golf course in Hawaii, because that was where he was while the negotiations with Democrats.
Eric Cantor: Why is it that Obama is so angry? His democrats are spending a trillion a year, right on schedule!
Mitch McConnell: Obama really frustrates me. I heard the new supercommittee is going to include the OWS protesters and just got deloused.
PLEASE REPUBLICANS, RIDICULE OBAMA!
Bama’s screwing around with the country and people’s lives.
He will do anything and say anything to get re-elected.
Even his MSM supporters admit that Obama’s personal ambition trumps any concern about the economy or America.
Sad thing is this quota boy will forever make one wonder if a black in a position of authority is there cause they earned the position or due to white guilt or quotas???
Were this marxist punk just some skinney narcissist jerk white guy ya think he’d ever been nominated much less elected??
Obama will just take ALL credit for trying to “cut spending” and “making cuts with a scapel” when we know he really wants to spend trillions more and blame congress as the obstrutionists. He had zero interest in fixing the debt problem or adhering to a budget. He did nothing while he had the chance.
Slam Obama with epic fail OBAMACARE, ECONOMY, RAISING TAXES DURING A RECESSION and trying to continue on with european failed economies (greece, Italy, spain etc.) in the USA. Obama wants to drive america off the cliff. Obama doesn’t want to talk about these things. Supercommitte a big worthless distraction that will only benefit obama!
CBS’s Sharyl Atkisson has been all over F and F, and now this. Has 0 pissed off CBS?
Comments like that need to be used as focal points repeated over and over and over again on national campaign adds. It’s essential to neutralize every and all potential campaign strategies the democrats want to use - before they use them. Its very important to tell the public in a mocking ‘there he goes again’ way exactly what the left is going to try using to save themselves from their pathetic record of incompetence. We should be starting this right now. It’s important to herd the left into paths they don’t necessarily want to go in.
Funny, he has a 16 trillion dollar deficit and he is proposing a 1 trillion dollar reduction in 10 years.
The mans an empty suit and a baldface liar
Zero is a disgusting, cowardly POS.
Zero don’t care about them. he is proven he does not need congress. As long as he is reelected he’s happy.
