The best part of the show was Sanjay's piece about the refugee camp. Sanjay is a great field reporter and I'm glad he's there.

I know it is Donna Brazile's job to protect the POTUS'image, but yes, he has to take a large part of the blame because his leadership skills have failed and Anderson said the same thing, though more tactfully.
We've had it with the rhetoric and now as David Gergen pointed out, do something that is tangible and makes some sense instead of giving us words.
The AP reported today that the public and the sentiment of the market or its pulse, reacted to the fact that Congress and the leader of the free world have created a circus, and President Obama is the ringleader with his buddy Boehner with whom he aspires to play a round of golf.
Yes, why doesn't Obama call Congress back from its recess during this massive economic meltdown?? Would it be too CONCRETE? TOO TANGILBE and someone may not like him?
Sorry, Donna but you too, failed the test.
Sanjay was the better portion of tonite's 360 and I watched the rerun at 10PM.
