Presiding over the downgrade of our political system

In the heat of the moment, when President Barack Obama (D)  still can't get his way, he petulantly finally revealed his true feelings about democracy in America and its necessary give and take. 


"If we don't come to an agreement, we could lose our country's triple-A credit rating, not because we didn't have the capacity to pay our bills--we do--but because we didn't have a triple-A political system to match our triple-A credit rating,"

So we don't have a triple-A political system?  If our country's sterling triple-A political system is downgraded, whose fault is it?  The founders who wrote our Constitution and devised our political system which has worked very well for 235 years and contributed to our triple-A credit rating or the President who can't seem to avoid a downgrade of either?
