"We've got some work to do. I don't mind, by the way, being responsible. I expect to be held responsible for these issues because I'm the president," Obama said. "But I don't want the folks that created the mess -- I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them just to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess.
"I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking," Obama said
Do you find this statement to be further proof that Obama is trying to control the msg and what people are allowed to say? Do you think he should make a list of the people who are allowed to have input on these matters so we know who IS allowed to speak?

But Bear....how does he choose those who are responsible? By party? BOTH parties voted in Bush's stuff. By who was in Congress at the time (the new people get a pass)? Well, THAT includes Obama and Mrs. Clinton. By popularity? Well in the last 2 yrs of the Bush presidency the senators had a lower approval rating than BUSH.....and OBAMA was one of them! So who EXACTLY is he asking to step aside and stop talking?
