    That right there will create millions of jobs alone. Of course people building that fence could be illegals. I know republicans like hiring them to work on their lawn.

    The problem is that they never use common sense and logic. GWSnotForBrains signed us up for two balloon mortgages for trillions of dollars. The tax cut for the wealthy and the Iraq War. Those items have compounded our problems just like those who tried to borrow their way out of debt with real estate balloon mortgages. GWSnotAndFriends sold us out. Clinton left with a realistic mathematical model to pay down the debt and then came two "entirely optional" balloon mortgages to use up any and all future gov't revenues. Thank you, GWSnotForBrains and friends. That would be Republicans. Those are the facts. The last ltime that happened was the late 1920's and it was the same deal. Check the Citigroup "plutonomy" analysis.

    If he starts the war with Iran, the media will stop blaming him. Wars run on OIL, so big energy gets a big kiss and free money. Wars run on weapons, etc., and all the "defense/offense" industries get a big kiss and free money. These two groups represent about 80% of our budgets. Military at $750 billion+ and 26 million barrels of OIL on an annual basis. That would also make them some of the Mass Media's largest purchaser of advertising and the leverage that goes with that. Yessir, that war is good for business and the business of war is what we are about, don't you think?

    We've been fighting two wars for 10 years. I don't see how it has helped the economy.

    Re: How long will they blame Obama

    Can I get a poll answer that says "For about how long Democrats will blame Bush"?

    Cause really, that's the thing.

    Democrats during Clinton still blamed Reagan for things, and there's been blame for Reagan even still under Obama. Republicans do the same thing. Both sides, politically, when things are going back will look to blame the other side first. The fact that the OP is focusing on the Republicans blaming Obama while basically ignoring, other than a passing comment that seems to also be sniping at the Republicans, that for the past 3 years Democrats have been blaming the past administration for everything under the stars makes his agenda pretty obvious.

    Please let me be the first to say that the Democrat Presidential candidate in 2016 is just like Carter.

    Not sure, how long will liberals blame Bush and the Republicans?

    I don't hear much blaming of Bush going on lately, except for from conservatives who wish it was still going on. Maybe some fringe liberals, but I think the rest of us are focused on the future.

    Ehh, both sides are guilty of it. Jon Stewart did a funny segment on how each side blames the other a few years back, with liberals blaming Reagan for everything gone wrong, conservatives blaming Clinton or Carter.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
