Actually Bill Clinton hit this one on the head. It was Obamas fault. Because he had a super majority and could have passed it earlier. Instead he was unprepared for it when it came up. Bad planning on the part of Obama.
Turns out he was afraid of the issue because he had voted against it as a Senator, and even called Bush unamerican for asking for it. Then he went on to say as a Senator i didn't take what is best for the country into consideration. He waited until he had a locked up Congress then asked for the raise. Why? Because he didn't want to own it. So once again he put the country at risk for his own personal goals and feelings.
