BLAME-SHIFTER: Obama Doesn’t Take Any Blame for Government Mess

President Barack Obama sat down for a rare interview with a local New York City television reporter on Tuesday. As the financial markets grow more skittish with a deal to raise the nation’s borrowing limit not yet agreed to, Obama urged calm. When pressed, Obama refused to concede that he deserves any blame for discord in Washington D.C.

WABC reporter Diana Williams sat down with Obama for 8 minutes on Tuesday for a wide-ranging interview about the standoff in Washington. She previewed portions of that interview for WABC’s 4 p.m. broadcast.

“The real good news is that Democrats and Republicans are very close to agreement in the Senate,” Obama said. “And what we’ve seen is a recognition on a part of a number of Senate Republicans that this whole strategy that they pursued of trying to extract ransom for keeping the government open was a bad strategy.”
