MR. OBAMA, QUIT BLAMING BUSH AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE MESS YOU CREATED - THE SUNDAY COMMENTARY

Since being elected President Barack Obama has played the blame game far more and with greater consistency than any of his predecessors in the Oval Office. Every President at one point especially when first taking office occasionally blames his predecessor for troubles that face the new administration. But that blame usually subsides within the first few months as the President begins taking responsibility for the office that he holds.

Not so with Barack Obama. Only days from the culmination of his first full nine months as President and Obama STILL takes every opportunity to place the blame for current problems on Bush and the Republicans rather than accepting any responsibility for the current state of affairs both domestically and with foreign policy.

As recently as a few days ago at a Democrat fund raiser in San Francisco, Obama once again blamed Bush for current affairs and Republicans for obstructing his agenda. Since taking office Obama has not yet figured out two things. One, how to stop constantly campaigning and two, how to accept ANY responsibility for current events here at home and abroad.

This continual campaign mode I believe comes from the fact that campaigning is his only true experience as a national politician and as such it is all that he knows how to do. Look at his flimsy record. He was a US Senator for three years and during that time he spent the majority of it campaigning for President. Additionally when one campaigns, blaming the opposition is an essential part of campaigning in order to garner votes.

So as a professional campaigner Obama knows nothing more than to blame the opposition for everything even when most is a result from initiatives that are directly related to his agenda and not his predecessors.

As far as his claim that Republicans need to get out of the way and let him clean up the mess they made. Let's look at the facts. First, Republicans have not been the majority in Congress since 2006 and much of what Obama is facing today has taken place since the Democrat take over of Congress three years ago. Second, he has a 60 vote majority in the Senate and a 76 vote majority in the House which means that Republicans CANNOT stop anything so how can they be obstructing Obama's agenda. The problem with getting his agenda passed lies within his OWN party not Republicans.

As far as his claim that Bush is the problem with everything he faces and that he , "inherited," everything from Bush. Again let's look at the facts. When Obama took office the projected deficit for fiscal year 2009 was about 484 billion dollars, not good but minimal in comparison to the 1.9 trillion dollar deficit that Obama created through his spending and government expansion. The projected deficit for fiscal 2010 by the Bush administration was again just under 500 billion under Obama that deficit has ballooned to 1.45 trillion and growing. So who is truly the blame for the massive deficit ?

The deficit is not the only thing that Obama tries to blame on Bush. Unemployment is hovering at about 10% with no end in sight for the current rise in unemployment. When pushing for the stimulus according to the bill itself, if left alone, without ANY , "stimulus," unemployment would have peaked at 9%. According to their own projections, Obama's bill concluded that if passed unemployment would peak at 8% in 2010 and begin falling as a result of the bill. None of which has happened and the reality is that the stimulus has INCREASED unemployment and not saved any jobs with each month bringing hundreds on thousands of new job closings. Obama carries the total responsibility as it was his stimulus that increased unemployment well beyond projections.

Also was it Bush who lobbied for and signed a 787 billion dollar stimulus that has stimulated nothing? Was it Bush who ignored his Commander in the Afghanistan theatre when asking for an additional 40,000 troops and then continually dragging his feet in even responding or considering the request and strategy ? Was it Bush who toured the world apologizing for American greatness ? Was it Bush who nationalized GM and Chrysler ? Was it Bush who use TARP funds to move to take over banks rather than just bail them out ?

On the subject of administration appointees, was it Bush who appointed several tax cheats and known Communists to the administration ? Was it Bush who appointed an Educational Czar who advised children to use protection when criminally sodomized by an adult ? As far as the vetting process being the blame for these disgusting appointments, this is just another excuse used by the Obama administration to avoid the truth and responsibility for terrible appointments.

I do not believe for one moment that vetting is the problem with these appointments. In actuality each of the appointees shared the same political philosophy and beliefs as Obama so what they had in their past was an attribute for Obama and it was only when objection came from the public that the administration backed away from some, while staying quiet about the rest in order to keep them in place waiting for the flak to subside.

Obama has consistently refused to take responsibility for anything that has taken place since he took office. When questioned on any subject that concerns the economy, Obama's first response is that he , "inherited," the problem from Bush, NEVER taking any responsibility for what he has done to make matters far worse. Using the example of inheriting money from an estate, the individual who inherits the money inherits it ONLY once. What they do with it after the fact is their responsibility and theirs alone.

Obama inherited economic problems once. What he has done to work those problems has resulted in failure and a far worse situation that previously projected. The excuse that he did not have the full extent of the problem when making his projections is unacceptable. As President of The United States he had every means and all available resources to access in order to have ALL of the information. So this too is a lame and ridiculous excuse.

The economic problems we face are his not Bush's. The problems in Afghanistan are his not Bush's. The problem in passing his agenda falls in his party not Republican obstruction because many of his own party members in Congress know that he is taking the wrong approach and that if they side with him they will lose any chance of re-election in 2010.

Most importantly the American people know that the responsibility for the wrong direction of the country and the problems we now face fall to the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and NOT the person who lived there ten months ago. For Obama to arrogantly think that we believe his blame Bush policy is absurd and an insult to the intelligence of the people. We don't buy it for one moment and he needs to accept the responsibility for the mess that HE created. Or as Harry Truman so truthfully noted with the sign on his desk while President, "the buck stops here." Mr. Obama the buck stops with you and you are responsible for this mess!

As regards the current state of affairs in this country, there is plenty of blame to go around, from Obama back through the last 3 or 4 administraions. I do agree, however, that it is time for the President to admit that most of the 'cures' he has instituted have proven to be failures. Only when that happens can he stop wasting time blaming others and defending himself and try to find real solutions.

Unlike the previous commenter, I don't believe that Obama is interested in finding real solutions. If he were, he would be far to busy working to find them instead of constantly campaigning on television. It's become so tiresome that I can't even stand to have him on the boob tube anymore and I know I'm not alone. Many people are becoming as burned out on him as I am.

Excellent posting, Ken. Sorry it took so long for me to get over here!

Obama has spent more time doing speeches and presentations then his job. So I have been calling him Acting President.
I don't think he has the ability to recognize his failures. He has always been perfect, ha ha.

Some Dems even tried to blame Bush for the loss of the Olympics in Chicago. They must have forgotten that the Chicago bid was accepted when Bush was president.

You stupid hillbillies, where were you when Bush was in office? Hiding under a rock? And yes, Hawaii IS in the United States, where Obama was born. Wake up, America.
