He didn't seem to in his comments on CNN this morning. Gene Sperling, the head of President Obama's National Economic Council, explained the failure of President Obama to get a deal on the debt ceiling last December as being a problem of divided government. 

Actually, Democrats fully controlled both houses of Congress by large majorities at that time. It is possible that Republicans may have filibustered a debt ceiling deal in the Senate, but it is just wrong to say that we had divided government.

Reporters may want to ask Mr. Sperling if he was aware of the congressional line-up last December. It is probably more important to the country than getting to the bottom of Representative Weiner's twitter underwear pictures.
