My point is, stop blaming him for any and everything. He doesnt not control every aspect of the entire world. Something bad happened, he sent marines and battleships to try to take control of the situation, let see how this plays out. If you want to sit there and get a hardon by telling strangers on the internet how much obama sucks, why dont you talk about the patriot act, or guantamano bay, or NDAA, or a number of other things you can actually blame him for. It would be way more effective then trying to stretch and blame the last couple days on Obama.


Liberals blamed Bush for everything. The planes flying into the buildings. everything. And Obama is still blaming Bush.

The entire point of my post is that criticism of Obama is increasingly treated as illegitimate, and not on the merits of the claims, but for petty, inconsequential reasons.


This is your own observation? Versus two years ago, you can tell how much Obama has been "legitimately criticized"(what ever the hell you mean by that)?

So, what, conservatives are blaming Obama in retaliation?

Congress was warned about Libya last month
e-ring.foreignpolicy.com...

While Washington vacationed in August, the non-partisan Congressional Research Service issued a now prescient-sounding report warning that Libya's security concerns were an "immediate priority" that might require far more attention and resources than the United States had given it.


This makes 3 sources.

Its okay, as long as we blame Bush for things he dropped the ball on. Glad we had this conversation.

Um, well maybe this should be taken into consideration:




The Government Accountability Institute, a new conservative investigative research organization, examined President Obama’s schedule from the day he took office until mid-June 2012, to see how often he attended his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) — the meeting at which he is briefed on the most critical intelligence threats to the country. During his first 1,225 days in office, Obama attended his PDB just 536 times — or 43.8 percent of the time. During 2011 and the first half of 2012, his attendance became even less frequent — falling to just over 38 percent.

More briefings + less golf might = a better informed President. Wasn't it FDR who had a plaque on his desk that read, "The buck stops here?"

From your link: Report: Obama Misses Over Half His Intelligence Briefings

It's really sad that obama does not care enough to spend more time in security and economic briefings. The article you linked to also stated that obama spent 412 hours in economic briefings and 600 hours playing golf. Sad, just sad.
Why even run for office if you don't care?

Bush, as this point of his presidency compared to Obama, has taken 3 times more vacation days. And that was when we had more overseas problems then we do now. Oh wait, I take that back, we are not allowed to compare obama to another president unless it makes obama look bad.

Are we talking about QE3?
Are we talking about the high unemployment?
Are we talking about the failed economy?
Are we talking about the increase (record increase) in foodstamps?
Are we talking about the falling dollar?

No.

The MSM is attacking Romney for being against the attacks.

The administration is apologising, sending billions to those who are attacking. The administration is even condemning the video. I guess the 1st Amendment doesn't mean anything to this administration!

Hell yes, they knew about it!


And to quote Charles Krauthammer on the subject of the attacks, "Go to hell!"

Just to back up your post.


So far, President Obama has taken 61 vacation days after 31 months in office. At this point in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings. And Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch. Among recent presidents, Bill Clinton took the least time off -- 28 days.

You say that nobody ever talks poorly of Obama anymore, But as I sit here writing this, I am watching Foxnews, and Hannity and Palin are blaming Obama for these Embassy attacks because "Obama has been too soft on the war on terror." Even though he has sent more troops to Afganistan to go after Al Qaeda then Bush has. He has killed not only OBL but just about the entire leadership structure of Al Qaeda and other terror groups.

Republicans are blaming Obama for absolutly anything they can think of, so people who dont keep up with the news regularly, can hear a snippet of Obama bashing here and there, to alter public opinion.

We are not talking about vacation days. We are talking about scheduled briefings. Please stay focused and try not to compare apples and rocks.

Obama has played more golf (600 hrs) then he did attending economic briefings (412 hrs). His golf outings are not considered vacation days. As the earlier link stated, Obama rarely would attend the security/military briefings.

It is very true. Go up a couple posts, TsukiLunar provided the link. Obama is not as bad as foxnews is telling America he is.

The republicans are going all out on Obama attacks because he is overwhelmingly beating Romney in the polls at the moment. And overseas problems is the perfect chance to try to convince people that Obama is not strong on national defense, even though he very much is.

Is CBS a credible link? Just using the liberal excuse.

Anyway, as stated above, we are not talking about vacation days, we are talking about scheduled briefings. Two totally different things.


Obama is not as bad as foxnews is telling America he is.

Yeah, he is worse.
If foxnews told the total truth, obama would find a way to use the FCC to take them off the air.
Obama is like that. He thinks he is king and would go around Congress and use unelected officials to do his dirty work.

I would say 412 hours for economics briefings alone is a lot. I could earn several degrees in less time.

There is no telling how important these briefings are or how they really factor into the competence of a president.

Something that would help in deciding would be a comparison with the hours between, say, Bush, Reagan, Clinton and Obama. Since you are the one making the argument, I will allow you to research it and make the comparison yourself.
