    First off this is not a pro or anti Iraq war thread. It is about Obamas seemingly inability to claim his successes and failures are his own.

    All weekend, including both Sunday shows, his administration has been pointing to President Bush as their backup to his decision to withdraw from Iraq. At the same time he credits Bush with his economic failures.

    WHY CAN'T OBAMA MAKE A DECISION AND LET IT STAND ON IT'S OWN MERITS?

    No matter if its good or bad, the outcomes and decisions always involve blaming Bush in some fashion or another. 3 years in and Bushs name still comes up daily. It's time to take the training wheels off Obama.

    There is not much to explain about a man afraid to stand on his own.

    I don't remember a president ever being stuck in campaign mode for his entire presidency.

    As to the rhetorical question at the top of the thread....

    No. Did you expect otherwise? If so, you will always be disappointed.

    Especially when he spent the lion's share of his time as a US Senator campaigning...and yes...he never left the campaign stage. We only have seen varying degress of campaigning instead of leading.

    Obama's problem is that he can't speak honestly because his honest intentions (Marxism) would scare the shit out of everyone.

    And gloming on to another's policy instead of making them his own save one pertinent detail...destroying that in which he once described as being "behind enemy lines", and that is the Private Sector and Capitalism.

    He would disagree with you on that. Possibly today, but maybe not tomorrow!

    Plasma I bet we can find dozens if not hundreds of videos where Obama blames Bush well into his presidency. Do you think we could find similar amounts of videos of previous presidents blaming their predecessors 3 years into their terms?
