It worked for Obama to Blame Bush for Three years, why should it not be used the same? This title should be changed to quit blaming Bush! Show me a budget? Show me Congressional approval to attack Libya? The Healthcare fiasco has been voted down in multiple courts?
Show me any shovel ready job and this putz laughed off the question?He directly stated he would control the budget, reign in spending. All I see is domestic BS policies. EPA for more regulations, the Gay agenda? How's that working out for the economy. Forcing people to pay Healthcare? Show me any positive without throwing out the race card! Does he have skin in the game? He said it, now call me a racist.

EPA needs way more regulations. I'll trust a corporation to police itself when pigs fly. The gay agenda? You mean, not wanting to be second class citizen likend to child molesters? That agenda is what we call american freedom, something the far right touts so often but suppresses at every opportunity. Forcing people to pay healthcare? Well thanks to the republicans who cut the original plan to ribbons, that had to be inserted just to mollify them. Show you a positive? Well, you may not like the bailouts the repuiblican-owned companies asked for, but it not only saved us from collapse, it has also been paid back with interest.

Ha, quit blaming bush. Yeah he only lied about why we went to war with the wrong country and couldnt find Bin laden with both hands at noon -especially since his dad works for bin laden's parents! And remember when Bush took the no-defecit balanced economy and said "gosh darn it, we have a surplus of money, here lemme mail y'all checks!" How about when Rumsfeld declared on 9/10 that they "lost" 1.3 trillion dollars that never turned up? Or the hudnreds of billions spent on the wars in the name of our troops only to be told later on that our troops had inadequate ammo and armor and Haliburton couldn't explain where the money went because they refused to keep a paper trail? Quit blaming bush? IMO he should be on trial!

I dunno, sounds more likely that you're here to just push the dont-re-elect Obama campaign's talking points. Either than or you somehow just went catatonic for the last decade.

I blame Obama for the economy. There's not much more you can blame him for.

He's a lawyer. IE, he gets his job done with good speaking but lousy quality sometimes. This reflects on his presidency. High quality peaks, low quality average.

Your opening piece can be shortened into a couple words - BLAME BUSH. Yes, he has his fair share in the blame, but do the rest of the puppets after the conception of the FED. If you really want to educate yourself, just look into the history of the FED, and how TPTB have manipulated the system for decades (and no, not doing the research for you - it is all available with a simple google search)

(and what, next I am going to have someone tell me that fiat currencies are good and ben bernanke has a handle on the situation, or as Obama said, don't worry about the financial crisis, the professionals are on it....LOL)

No, the op does NOT say this. Don't blame Bush exclusively either. I use him as a primary example because I truly believe him to be the worst prez in the history of the nation, but I agree wholeheartedly with you, and many others here.- blame EVERYONE EQUALLY. Everyone seems to be forgetting - the Prez is 1/3 of what controls this country. No more, no less. For everything he vetoes, Congress can override, and the Supreme Court can rule unconstitutional. Checks and balances, baby. Let me say, ONCE AGAIN - the purpose of this thread is NOT to blame Bush. It is NOT to say "Obama's done nothing wrong." It's to say, to all of the people who think it's ALL Obama's fault, that it's much, much greater than that, and if they want to avoid looking like fools in arguments, to not forget Bernanke, Pelosi, Boehner, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Clinton to some degree, the Reagan admin to a great degree, and everyone else who's had a great ol' time profiting off the demise of this great nation. (Hey, see? I didn't even mention Bush!)

Obama was never qualified for this position. He was educated, solid public speaker, and becasue of that he, minorities fell in love with him and voted for him without understanding the changes he was looking to make.. I honestly knew some African american people who voted for him just because he was black. Stuff like that Ill never get...

How many here vote in local elections?

How many write their Congressman?

How many would get up and try to even change anything?

Lots of fans, no ball players.

This is your democracy and your government.

Get involved, in some way, big or small.

Stop this acrid, banal play and get control of what are your rights as a Citizen of what is STILL the greatest Social Experiment on Earth....

I dont think anyone blames Obama for the disaster he inherited from 8 years of blank check spend us into oblivion spending that the GOP allowed Bush, I think what makes people angry is that we thought we elected someone who would fight them, not surrender and join them.

Wrong bro. Obama has already out spent Bush by trillions, and that is only after 2 1/2 years in office. Obama is just another hand picked yes man by the puppet masters, as was Bush.

Total spending by all U.S presidents from 1789 through 2008 = $96.1 trillion.

Obama spent $3.6 trillion in 2010 alone.

2011 calls for $3.86 trillion.

Assuming that Obama has two terms, and the status conitnues as is, he will have spent $28 trillion dollars give or take. That's just assuming he stays on course with what he has already spent. If he loses the next election, he still would have spent atleast $13 trillion dollars give or take.

Do a little research before you blame everything on Bush. Obama has only punched a bigger hole in an already sinking ship. Oh and uh, The Republicans only controlled the House the first 4 years. In 2001 Senator Jim Jeffords switched parties, so The Dems won control of the Senate. The Democrats controlled all of the Congress during the last 4 years of Bush's term.

Obama was going to focus on jobs when he took office, then in 2010, then 2011, and now when he gets back from vacation. He pledged transparency, he accepted his reward for transparency behind closed doors with no press. He pledged to reduce our conflicts overseas - he's expanded them, alienating Pakistan in the process; we're in Yemen, we're in Libya... hell it looks like we might be going to Syria next. He talks about how tough it is - but he takes one jet for vacation, his wife another. He pledged to do without lobbyists - not even close, his NSA appointment was a Goldman Sachs executive.

Healthcare? His plan is so good that he's given out well over 1500 corporate waivers. About 20% of them alone come from Nancy Pelosi's district. BP Oil Spill? Wonder how happy the people of the Gulf Coast are with the arrangements he helped negotiate? Free speech? Practically wanting to ban one "bad" news organization that's not favorable to him; exacting revenge against journalists who say something bad about him, not taking questions, pre-staging questions, and constantly blaming someone else. They are all to blame... 100% agreement, but Obama takes it further. His arrogance is purposeful.

He supports a Dept of Homeland Security that considers if our founding fathers were alive today, they would be terrorists. He supports a vice-president who has called a very significant portion of American citizens "terrorists". We can go on and on and on. I don't blame Obama any more than Bush Jr., I think Clinton shares a good portion of the blame for NAFTA and dealings with the Chinese - considering half their fund-raisers have been indicted. We can push it back to Bush Sr. - who was the CIA director under Jimmy Carter, too.

There's plenty of blame to go around - and to all of us for not getting a whole helluva lot more angry a lot sooner. I never liked JFK, but more and more get the sense he knew what the real problems were. And from there, probably the last Real President we had was Eisenhower. He made the deepest cuts of all, cuts that hurt him and which reflected on his military career.

Why support any of them! You freely and symbolically give your power away!

When Obama and the Dem's had total control, all we got was trillions printed, banker bailouts and socialistic healthcare tax mandated on anybody with a pulse (unless you're an insider buddy with a waiver). If my choices are GOP resistive gridlock and fascist policies inside America, I choose gridlock.

If he'd been successful to now, you would not be giving credit to the previous admin, Bama would take all the glory; but since he's been a total failure, oops! must be the GOP's fault.

Here's an idea Bama, restore the Constitution on all levels and quit screwing the people and trying to paint it like its the best thing in the world. People can innately smell what you're shovelin' no matter what you try to dress it up like.

The president can't fire congress. He can try to put through legislation that evens the playing field for everyone but, congress stands in the way. I'm not American but, I feel as the OP says, it really is not his fault.
On the Obamacare package, you won't be seeing or feeling anything from that piece of legislation its much too convoluted to be of any use. On the bail outs, Obama was forced into signing by much the same band of thieves that have blocked him at every opportunity. Your system is broken folks. Line up as many D-9's (cats) on one side of the hill as you can muster, put the blades down and move forward. Don't stop until its all flattened. I think the same could be said of all of our political systems. Somewhere along the way the electorate; the part of the population that matters, lost its influence on all of our politicians. That influence was taken by the special interests and lobbies that so pervade our capitals.

Wiregrab out.

I totally agree with you. I think people in general are more comfortable blaming an individual than a group. I believe it's not as comfortable and satisfying to point a finger at a group of people as it is a single person. It allows us to make the grudge personal.

I grew up in a small town that didn't have a very good school system but even I understand how the system of Checks and Balances work. With some exceptions such as being commander in chief, the president really only has real power to do two things. To veto or not to veto.

Just another blame Bush, Hey its been what almost 3 years since BO has been elected and if you want to blame someone blame the Dirty Harry and SanfranNacy they had the purse strings since 2006 up until finaly taking it away in 2010. What are you going to do if BO gets elected still blame Bush? The thin skined whinner in charge needs to grow up and grow a pair and do something other than play golf and go on vacations.

Obama is a Stooge, voted for by mostly gullible stooges in the US who by the very fact they voted, only in the last election and few others, proves they were won over by propaganda TV, pretty pictures, and lies
Yes, You are right I am not a Yank, I am not blaming anybody though.
Mankind has been following fools for as long as I can read whats been written in history books.
Dont blame Obama, blame the ignorance of the masses.
Or as RTruth would say..........
