The Wheel Of Blame
He Needs To Buy A Vowel - "I"
Seems to me that...
It just seems to me that after a while people might wake up to reality and realize that Obama and his entourage in government have no idea how to fix a flat tire much less the economic problems we face. These are the same people who created this train wreck in the first place and that includes him. His answer is "more government" which equates to more wasted spending of our tax payer dollars. Three years into this fiasco called his presidency and he continues to blame Bush for the problems he, and his policies, have exacerbated. I find that be rather nauseating as does the average American. Mr. President, put on your big boy panties and realize that Bush isn't in charge anymore - YOU ARE.
The most recent CBS poll says that 54% of those polled don't think Obama has done his job well enough to warrant his being reelected. I am one of those 54% I can assure you. So lets flashback to the past and see what he said at the onset of his time in office.
Flashback To His Words
That's what he said and I reckon that is what he is going to get. While many people find the guy likeable and congenial, generally they don't care for his policies or the direction the country is headed. At what point will he say his policies have failed or the excessive spending he has led the circus in saddled this nation with and change course? He was asked that very question in that interview and he gave his usual version of the Obama tap dance. In just those three short years he has been at the helm and added $5 trillion to the national debt. I suppose he considers that to be "sound fiscal" policy. Let me now answer that for him - NEVER. He said he will be accountable. When? I'll answer that for him now also - NEVER. During the next election is the ideal time for the American electorate to exercise good common sense and answer that for him. Being the ideologue he is he will never veer off the "big government" band wagon as being the answer rather than the problem. He'll continue to blame Bush until the chickens come home, and they went to the slaughterhouse about the time of his inauguration.
Three Years Into This And We Hear This Version
So why do people still support him? Are they as out of touch with reality as he is? Are they still believing in his "hope and change" thingy? Or are their lives failing as fast as his economic policies are? Someone tell me how they can continue to support anyone who has done more damage to our economy, under the guise of trying to "fix" it, than Jimmie Carter did during his short lived presidency. In his own words here is the explanation:
"The reason they still support me is because they understand what an incredible mess had been made as I was coming into office and we've been spending the last three years cleaning it up. The good news is that the economy is starting to strengthen. We've seen some positive signs. The unemployment rate has ticked down."
Then flash back to the first video and listen closely to what he said keeping in mind that his lips are moving and continue to move without seeing any tangible results as "The Blame Game" continues. "Where's the beef?" as Clara Peller demanded.
Are people that enamored with empty rhetoric that they don't realize that he is nothing more than an empty suit and a politician and a bad politician at that? I guess if you repeat the same lie often enough some people will believe it or continue to believe it. Everything that hasn't happened that needed to happen during these three short years can't possibly be laid at his altar. The first two years he was in office his party having the majority in both houses of Congress as he rammed Obamacare, still wildly unpopular, and enacted a "favor for friends" program he calls a successful stimulus program. How in the world can $5 trillion be spent, added to the national debt and he tell us how successful his administration is being in fixing things?
Some people may buy that smoke and mirrors routine. I think he's counting on it. And yes, recession is when your neighbor loses his job and depression is when you lose yours. Count on this though as we enter full gallop into the next election cycle. Obama has no part, wants no part and will accept no responsibility for the mess he exacerbated. Things were bad before and they are far worse now. Explain that Obama and for goodness sake stop pointing that bony finger at anyone and everyone else and point it where it belongs. Where? At yourself Mr. President, exactly where it belongs.
You said it yourself. If after three years you haven't done what you promised to do then you deserve to be a one term President. So be it!
