Media bias?

I find it quite interesting, that even with all the various proposals put forward by the Republicans in this debt ceiling debate (more savings, raising revenue, etc) and with the numerous threats of veto by President Obama that Republicans are the ones being portrayed in the media as the reason the debt crisis took so long and the end result was so poor.

Republicans certainly could have helped the situation more… but I don’t believe they are (even half) the reason we are where we are today.

Democrats have controlled Congress since 2007… they had a super-majority for over a year WITH a Democratic President in the White House… yet somehow Republicans are to blame for all the increased spending during that time.
