A strong argument can be made that the causes were much wider, deeper, and longer in the making than GW Bush.

While accomplishing this he has had to deal with the Tea Party who has now shut the government down twice,

The reasons for the decreased rating of 2011  has many factors. The recent shutdown had nothing to do with the 2011 degrading of the U.S. credit rating.

But if one had to summarize  one general reason the downgrade, it would be lack of leadership, both in Congress and in the White House.

Are you referring to the multiple recently passed House bills  to restore funding  that the Senate Leaders refuse to bring to a vote?
