    Is he EVER going to take responsibility...FOR ANYTHING????

    Well, of course he will take responsibility for anything that goes well... Everything that goes wrong is the fault of Republicans and everything that goes right is because the Messiah did it....Sheeze... This is getting old.

    He's been President for 1.5 years, has control of the house and Senate, and still can't anything done... He had to buy off votes in his own party to get health care done... He is an embarrassment.

    Remind me the last time Republicans took the blame for anything they did wrong? It's a two way street. Please don't pretend like republicans are perfect.

    Your right, it is getting old.

    Take a look at Bush's approval ratings. In 2006, not much different until the middle, when immigration reform started, pushed by Bush/McCain. Notice from that point on...

    Timeline: Bush's Eight Years in Office | washingtonpost.com

    Here's a bit of the timeline on that attempt:

    Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    While Obama lost much of the far left support while throwing various people and issues under the bus early on; Bush lost his right of center support wholesale over the backdoor to amnesty.

    Republicans rarely screw things up to take blame for. Some liberal repubs do, but its rare. Everything the libs and socialists do screws up our country, but they never own up to it.

    Also, when Republicans are caught cheating or the like they are usually booted from the party in disgrace, unlike Dems who just ignore any wrong-doing by their own.

    No one is saying Republicans are perfect, but when one party is right 95% of the time and the other is wrong 95% of the time, its easy to see who should take the blame for screwing things up.

    Hell, the Dems had a Klansman as their elder statesman! And their other hero had a male prostitution ring running out of his apartment!

    That BO, he's a funny guy. Everything he does is for a political purpose. He reminds me of a guy crying "THIEF" and pointing with one hand to someone else while he has his other hand in your pocket.

    You may not agree with Obama but he has got some major legislation passed. The healthcare bill is the most important piece of healthcare legislation since Medicare. The financial reform bill is the most significant financial regulation since the 30's. If he gets immigration reform through, he will have done what none of his predecessors could do. The Republicans can't allow him this victory. Irregardless of what's in the immigration bill, Republicans will vote against it.

    Just because he's got legislation through doesn't mean it's good legislation. :eusa_eh:
