My garbage can is getting full, needs to be taken to the dumpster. WHY WONT OBAMA DO ANYTHING?
One of you will end up here next!
Paul is right here. Blaming Obama for something that is clearly BP's responsibility (and BP's responsibility to fix) is just another instance of government-worship. People are so obsessed with the idea that the president can fix anything and that the government should handle everything, that even when an issue clearly is the complete and total responsibility of the private sector, they bash the president. Maybe instead of bashing Obama for "doing nothing" we should be grateful that the man has decided not to overstep his bounds and place the responsibility and cost of the leak on the tax payer.
My son: "Mom? Don't you have a butt to fix?"
I do think Obama is getting too much criticism. Not that he doesn't deserve a fair amount, but I think it is a bit over blown how much criticism he's getting, primarily from those on the right and right wing political outlets.
That said, I thought Bush got far too much of the criticism and blame for Katrina as well even though he did deserve a fair amount. It too was massively overblown primarily by those on the left and by most of the left leaning media outlets.
While I would say Bush was a bit bigger of an issues than Obama's, I also think there were far more guilty government parties in Bush's case then there are in Obama's. In both cases I think they reacted a bit poorly in their public presentation of it, both with Obama manipulating it to take even more political shots and jabs at the Bush Administration and trying to play the blame game as he's been doing for his entire Presidency and Bush with his "Browne" comments and unintelligent public presentation by remaining at his ranch.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
