Barack Obama passes the buck rather than the Buck stops here.
“I don’t need to remind any of you about the situation we found ourselves in at the beginning of this year,” Obama told people at a Home Depot stop last month. And then he reminded them anyway, detailing a nation in financial free fall when he took office.
Never has there been a President of the United States who so blamed others for all the ills of his Presidency than Barack Hussein Obama. The lack of leadership and personal responsibility can only come from one who’s claim to fame is being a community organizer. The time has come for this President to stand up and take responsibility for his actions, policies and the state of the United States.
A Presidents job is to lead, not lay blame on the previous administration. Sadly, when it comes to Barack Hussein Obama, it is all about Bush. Obama campaigned as not being Bush and since being elected he has never taken responsibility for his actions as President. Barack Hussein Obama campaigned for a job that he knew what the consequences were and what he was getting in to. What President does not inherit the good and the bad of a previous administration?
He says “the buck stops with me,” but nearly a year into office, President Barack Obama is still blaming a lot of the nation’s troubles — the economy, terrorism, health care — on George W. Bush.
Over and over, Obama keeps reminding Americans of the mess he inherited and all he’s doing to fix it. A sharper, give-me-some-credit tone has emerged in his language as he bemoans people’s fleeting memory about what life was like way back in 2008, particularly on the economy.
“Yes, we can”?
Try “Yes, I have.”
The fact of the matter is that the United States and millions of Americans are not better off than they were before Obama and his so-called “Hope and Change”. Since Barack Obama took office another 3.4 million people have lost their jobs, including just another 85,000 last month. That does not even touch the number of people who have fallen off the unemployment rolls and have never regained employment. Barack Obama promised that unemployment would be held to 8% if the $787 billion stimulus package was passed. His actions and policies as President have caused unemployment to be 10%.
GWB can certainly not be blamed for Obama’s insistence on cramming the government control of health care down the throats of Americans when the US majority is strongly against it. Nor the unpopular Cap and Trade, yet they will try their best.
More from PJ Media and Obama’s obsession with George W. Bush and the medias need to constantly run cover for him.
