    that will seem preposterous to most Americans and so should enable Romney to become our next president!! Two Republican Supreme Court nominees comming up and then liberalism will be cooked!!

    Wrong. I've seen a few very hard hitting political ads targeting Romney. Perhaps you're hoping Obama has forgotten all about Mitt? :lol:

    I think that's pretty much his point. As I read it, Ed is suggesting that Obama is campaigning against George Bush, again...

    His point was that Obama is running against Bush and I am saying no such luck.

    I misread your post...

    I have yet to see one ad against Romney. Every speech I see or hear from our President focuses on what he "inherited" (never mind that he asked for and actively sought the job knowing full well what he faced), blaming the previous administration, blaming Republicans, blaming anyone at whom he can point a finger, nary a mention of Romney, and certainly no claim of responsibilty or failure on his part.

    At what point, seriously, does the President, any President, become responsible for the actions and policies he has enacted since taking office? I can't remember one who has spent as much time blaming the "other guy" as President Obama has. Not Bush, not Clinton, not Bush, not Reagan, not Carter.

    Well you begin with the false premise that every speech is about George Bush.

    The anti Romney ads have to do with his record as Governor and they are very good.

    What false premise? I clearly stated, "Every speech I see or hear." Now, I suppose that there may have been a bit of hyperbole in that statement, but you must admit that it would be disingenuous to say that the President hasn't seized just about any and every opportunity to lay the blame for the country's current state at the feet of George Bush. He doesn't often say his name, but we all know what he means when he says he "inherited" these problems.

    Look, I'm not saying that he was wrong to point out the shortcomings of the previous administration. I'm not saying he was wrong to blame Bush. But, in my opinion, he should have stopped blaming them after his first year in office. He didn't and he hasn't.

    So, I repeat my last question...

    At what point, seriously, does the President, any President, become responsible for the actions and policies he has enacted since taking office? I can't remember one who has spent as much time blaming the "other guy" as President Obama has.

    Um, every speech I've heard Obama give mentions Bush, which kinda gets me excited until I find out it's about politics, but seriously is there one that doesnt mention W?
