Who is to blame for the Washington gridlock: Obama (yes) or Republicans (no)?

  • Can we stop pointing fingers at others, but instead point them at ourselves.

    While we point fingers and blame each other, our country grows weaker and we create schisms in our political structure that's almost impossible to fix. Instead of blaming Republicans or Democrats why can't we just blame ourselves and work on fixing the problem. Let's fix this country from the bottom up. Thank you and God Bless America.

  • The leader of the USA is to blame

    We are all to look to the leader of the USA for guidance and if we aren't getting it, then guess what? No one else is to blame. If the couch of a baseball team can't play baseball, you don't blame the players. You blame the couch for not being able to show them how to play. Obama is to blame for the actions of everyone under him.

  • No, Republicans are mostly to blame.

    As much as I dislike Obama in office, the fact of the matter is that everyone is to blame. While the President is expected to make all these magical and wonderful changes, people neglect to recognize the simple fact of the matter - he isn't autonomous. We don't live under a monarchy (and even monarchs generally have parliaments) we have a complex system of checks and balances. If one side says no, then it can crash. This being the case, why have I chosen to point the finger at Republicans? Because like it or not, the majority voted in favor of Obama and all of his ideals. Standing against him rather than looking at what the majority of the public wants is just selfish.

  • No, Republicans are almost entirely to blame for Washington gridlock.

    Republicans are the ones who have turned their backs on their own proposals when they found out President Obama supported them. Republicans are the ones who have made the 60 vote threshold the norm in the senate. Republicans are the ones who appear to be interested not in making policies that help our country, but simply in winning a political fight.
