President Obama is laying low at the White House today. No doubt he and his staff are keeping on eye on the world markets for any aftermath of the S&P down grade of America's debt. Monday should also bring a nice game of "Who's to blame" for the down grade.
"This is essentially a tea party downgrade," Obama's top political advisor David Axelrod told the CBS program Face the Nation. "The tea party brought us to the brink of a default."
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also appearing onFace the Nation, "The Tea Party didn't destroy Washington," Graham said. "Washington was destroyed before the Tea Party got there."
