At some point, the Obama administration has to take responsibility of their own polices instead of blaming it on Bush, Obama and the liberals are very good at blaming others.

Obama can't keep hiding behind the shadow Bush left. He blames his mistakes on Bush and continues to say that his own administration has done nothing wrong.

Side: Yup

Wow! Talk about Change ;)

Think of it like this. If someone pushed you down and you got a nasty scar. You can try to fix it but lets say it gets infected because you treated it wrongly. It is still the person who pushed you down's fault for causing the scar in the first place.

The trouble is, Bush was such an attractive blame-magnet. He was like the Satan of politics. Got a corn on your toe? Must've been Bush. Tsunami kill a hundred thousand men and women? Bush's fault, obviously.

How can we give up that old habit of blame after eight years and a new administration?

Braking someone else's promise isn't wrong. If Obama broke his promise then it wrong. Thats like me promising I won't say something and getting angry when my friend says it. Makes no sense ;p

Why is it that any time a popular president starts to fail the blame goes to something else?

Obama is FAILING! His own political party even sees it! Now is the time he and all of his voters stand up and take some responsibility for his inability to lead properly.

Side: Are you CRAZY NO

For the love of God wake up people...they are both criminals. When will the people in this country start to realize that the democrats and republicans are exactly the same, power hunger crooks that steal liberty. Why do we sit around debating which party is better or who's fault it is when they both share equal blame...as they are the same. This two parties have left the people of the country with no choice when it comes time to vote. They both wage unneeded wars, they both raise taxes in one form or another, they both rob liberty, and they are getting more and more out of control. Democrats listen to me you can't force people to take care of other people by stealing there income and making social programs...income tax is robbery end of story. No matter how noble the cause you cannot fund things through theft, that is not freedom. And for God sakes do you really believe the government is the most efficient means to help people...the government sucks at everything. Look its nice that you want to help people but do it with private charities and churches ran by people who care about the cause of there charity. Your turn republicans, how dare you claim to be the party that embraces liberty when you all spend your energy forcing what you think is "morally" right on others...that is not liberty its that other thing what's it called oh yeah! TYRANNY! To bad if you don't like your neighbor who might be gay...live with it, would you like to beg the government for permission to get married...and to bad if someone wants to smoke pot or use drugs thats there choice a bad choice but none the less there choice and if they mess there lives up let them mop it up. Wake up, wake up, wake up liberty is not utopia it is a country where people can flourish from good ideas and sink when they make bad ones. Liberty can really hurt sometimes however, stop giving up your right to choose for yourself...the pain of failure is much less then the weight of tyranny. Final I encourage all that may read this to study the difference between a democracy and a republic. We are not a democracy we are a republic and there is a huge difference republics protect us from mob rule. That is it stops 51% from taking away the rights the other 49%. Study the difference, study what real liberty is, and embrace it as I promise you neither party is offering it.
