    So who's job was it to provide leadership to Congress to get these things done? Who's job was it over the last two years to guide the government in fixing these problems?

    Does that include all the people we elected to serve?

    Well At Least He Isn't Blaming....

    .....Bush :laugh:

    Obama is great at campaigning. Raising funds for his political party. Avoiding the real issues. And, of course, he is masterful as the art of passing the blame.

    In the art of the "blame game!" Obama is the master. :thumbsup:

    This once again proves President Obama's lack of leadership ability. Whatever happened to 'The Buck Stops Here?'

    Thank you for a substantive criticism of the president. This is the kind of thing we need to be looking at.

    Just one more example of his refusal to keep a campaign promise. He said he was going to change the way things get done in congress. But all he has done is become more divisive. He cannot lead so he attacks like a kid in a school yard. He refuses to admit that his Keynesian policies are an utter failure and one cannot spend their way out of debt. He does not want to admit that socialism is a failed ideology as is shown all across the world right now.

    The bigger problem Obama has is that he cannot point to Bush or the Republicans for the socialist problems in Europe. Which is where Obama wants to go with this country. He cares nothing about the founding of this country, the constitution, or enforcing laws he does not like.

    We need a President that will restore honor to the Whitehouse. Obama is a failure and an utter embarrassment to this country.

    Obama was a liar from the beginning.

    And what's more, I'm tired of the same old rhetoric from the so-called conservatives. The only ones out of touch with reality are they. The Dems know that the policies they've enacted will only serve to wreck the economy and this nation. That's their goal. They just lie about it.

    It's time for more congressmen to shout "You lie!" to the President. It's time all the S.C. Justices shook their heads in open defiance. Half the states have this regime in court. It's time they simply said we ain't doin' it, and that's that.

    A friend of ours had twin boys. They were in a retail store and one wet his pants. Mom said, "Jimmy (false name) did you wet your pants?" Jimmy hesitated but only for a moment and said, "No mommy, he did it." pointing to his brother.

    Obama hasn't done ANYTHING, Bush, Congress, the public, the banks --- they did it!

    If Barry Was Ever Arrested, and...

    ...Interrogated by the police, he'd sound like the typical suspect: "I didn't do it. I wasn't even there when it happened! It had to be that Texan, Bush, or, maybe FOX News, or better yet. I'd lay odds that some Tea Party pushing hypocrite is who you're looking for! You've got the wrong man. I was just doing my usual work as a community organizer, there's no way I could've done what you think I've done!" :laugh:
