Representative Vicky Hartzler (r) is having difficulty remembering her republican talking points. Via Twitter:

@RepHartzler Rep. Vicky Hartzler

Looks increasingly likely the Super Committee will fail in its charge to find $1.2 trillion in savings/reforms. Where’s Pres. Obama? AWOL! 1 hour ago

@RepHartzler Rep. Vicky Hartzler

Pres. Obama has been AWOL–preferring to travel the world rather than give leadership to help forge an agreement to save our country! 1 hour ago

All that’s missing is all caps.

Oh, really?:

Lawmakers Trade Blame as Deficit Talks Crumble

By ERIC LIPTON

Published: November 20, 2011

….Senator John Kerry, Democrat of Massachusetts, said on “Meet the Press” that President Obama and White House budget officials “were asked to be hands off.”

The Republicans said, ‘Don’t let Obama come into this, because if he does, it will make it political,’ ” Mr. Kerry said, adding, “They’ve been intimately involved, but carefully so that they didn’t politicize it. I think they did the right thing….”

[emphasis added]

Well, isn’t that interesting?

The right blames Obama for GOP’s debt failure

….Republicans can’t urge Obama to keep his distance, and then blame him when he keeps his distance.

Members of this committee were given a task: strike a deal. Democrats were willing to meet Republicans more than half way; Republicans weren’t willing to compromise. It’s only natural to wonder who’s to blame when there’s a breakdown like this, but holding the White House responsible is deeply foolish.

[emphasis added]

“…deeply foolish…”

We knew that already.
