Well, Neo, 99% of the time...I not only agree but I'm as loud as anyone about being sick and beyond tired of Bush being the whipping boy for every single evil Obama does or thinks.

In THIS case? Bush isn't a singular example...but actually is a bit valid for the pattern Obama is following and taking to new levels. It's worth noting that Obama is doing what many a failing politician (when the WHOLE media turns they appear to be now? Failing IS the word) have done before him.

Like so much else? Obama hasn't invented or thought up a good % of what he's done. He's just taken other ideas and other approaches to take ownership and blow them into levels not seen before. He wouldn't do it ...if the pattern wasn't long established. people find 1000 ways to excuse Obama, Holder and Clinton's personal actions? It's critical, IMO, to's the pattern we NEED to see broken. If not? The loser in 2016 will do the very same thing ..and the one after that and so on.

Moron - mild mental retardation. Come on... that's Bush

Right! Because most people who suffer from mild mental retardation get an undergrad from Yale and a graduate degree from Harvard Business School.

Bush a moron? Really? What is your educational background that gives you the chops to say that?

Obama is not oblivious to these abuses of power and these scandals. He just keeps his mouth shut until he absolutely has to admit something. Typical criminal.

Come on, people...

It is impossible to micromanage a country of 300 million...

Obama, Bush, probably any president ever, has been a very smart man. Whether rich or not, it is not easy to get a degree from any Ivy League college and it required knowledge.

It is easy to comment from the sidelines, but I am 100% sure most if not all people here would not do better if on the same position.

There are usually million different things happening at the same time across a country like that. No person would have the time to get all the information. As far as I know, every politician has people for it. Whether campaign managers, image consultants, other party members. Everybody is in charge of a certain aspect. Most speeches are not written by the presidents, all the information they get comes from the meetings with different staff members who are in charge of different areas. The staff members have people to select information out for them.

A leader has to be in a way jack of all trades, undertanding various different fields. Although it is impossible to be specialist in everything. That is why there are so many consultants, specialists at their fields.

The leader has to make the decisions based on the information they get.

Best leaders have everything managed like that. It is impossible to know everything happening in the world in detail, knowing every law, every scheme in detail. At first a team of trustworthy consultants is made, who are all responsible for certain fields, who have to report in meetings what is happening for the leader to get the overall picture of the situation. The consultants have teams working for them. Everything comes through different channels and of course some screw-ups are hidden from the "boss".

In such a big country with so much responsibility in the world, it is impossible to know everything that is happening. It is simply impossible time-wise. Very small government is impossible.

Lots of people act here as being a president is a piece of cake. It is not. If somebody implies that it just shows their ignorance and lack of knowledge.

I get so tired of repeating it, but Obama was put into place by the CIA. That is why nothing will unseat him. Not unless they want it to happen. Just look at all of the evidence and who he has been surrounded by since he was a kid. And the CIA is not the bumbling clan of idiots that they have expertly painted themselves to be. They are the legacy of operation paperclip. Obama is one of the thousand points of light that old man bush talked about. They are damned sharp and playing us all.

I know that you are here to make everyone feel good about bad things happening and to misdirect us away from the truth. I also know that part of your job is to tell us how that only crazy people believe in conspiracies, but "come on"... you really are fighting a loosing battle at this point.
