In a sit down interview with late night host David Letterman that will be aired later this evening, President Barack Obama continued a trend of blaming others for the problems this country faces.

“There’s more than enough blame to spread around,” Obama told Letterman, according to the pool report. “These problems have been around for a decade or more.”

The president's statement was in response to this (from the pool reporter): "Letterman lingered on a number of serious topics, asking Obama to explain the nation’s budget crisis at length and to comment on the gridlock that much of the nation sees in Washington."

Obama was also asked about his daughters growing up:

Letterman remarked on how grown-up Obama’s daughters, Sasha and Malia, looked at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte this month.

“Does that kill you?” Letterman asked.

“It worries me, but they’re surrounded by men with guns,” Obama replied.
