    2 or 3 years. And retrospective analysis will reveal to what extent things were Obama's fault and to what extent they were Bush's fault. As it is, I don't feel bad about blaming Bush for the things Bush did and the things that are his fault. If it were a simple matter of being able to ask for the lost money, time, reputation, and lives that went into the War in Iraq, and if Obama was refusing to do that out of stubborness and pride, then I would place the lord's share of the blame on him instead of Bush -- but since Bush orientated the country in a certain direction for eight years, and because it is impossible to retract that motion or re-set the course without difficulty, it is Bush's destiny to get blamed for the fall out of his policies.

    Just not by Republicans.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Does that mean the Republicans get to blame The Obama for 2 or three years for the mess He made?

    Wait...
    Bush messed thngs up SO bad... but you only expect The Obama to tackle the mess if it is "without difficulty"?

    That's just a politically motivated cop-out, an excuse to continue the Bush policies while blaming Bush for them...

    On what international/global scale has Obama "messed up" anything? Seems to me almost all of his efforts thus far have been to clean up the mess left by someone else.

    If and when President Obama effs things up the way Bush did, you'll have a point. Until then, the question is moot.

    Given that "messes things up" is an entirely subjective standard, I'll then take you answer to agree that the Republicans get to blame The Obama for 2 or three years for the mess He made.

    Of course they can. What if on the other hand nothing is FUBAR will Republicans give credit where credit is due?
