It's interesting that Mr. Gillespie would accuse the President of "wrecking" the economy. On shows such as this, the partisans try to advance themes that they want out there for discussion. If you're a Republican, of course you want to accuse the President of "wrecking" the economy; you don't want to be tarred and feathered with that distinction.
The Republican Party has established "wrecking" the American economy as an agenda item for the next 18 months or so in order to defeat the President at the polls in November 2012. Who will pay the price for a wrecked American economy between now and then? And why won't the media explain that the Republican Party is hell-bent on wrecking America's economy?
This is statesmanship?
As to the argument that President Obama is "in over his head," well, the answer on that is no. He's not in over his head. He's been listening to the wrong people. That's a huge difference.
