    By walking away from Simpson-Bowles, Obama created the need for the super committee, which had no chance of success.

    Obama himself appointed Bowles and Simpson to his National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform.

    The talking point now is that Simpson-Bowles is nearly identical to the super committee Democratic plan.
