Obama didn't cause this mess..Conservative Republicans have. And they refuse..absolutely refuse..to take any responsibility at all for it. They fucked up. Simple as that. They totally own it. Simple as that. Obama, has for the most part, made a major mistake in: A. Not attaching any responsibility to the private sector while bailing them out. B. Didn't vigorously pursue the wrong doers in both the public and private sectors. And not doing these things have only deepened the problem. In fact..it's given power to the very people who started the meltdown in the economy. Obama's developed a "Charlie Brown and Lucy" relationship with Republicans. In that they "pretend" to work with him..and then they walk away with the football when Obama goes fully to their side. -They started a deficit reduction commission, then disowned when Obama wanted to use their suggestions. -Obama adopted every single provision for the stimulus that Republicans put in..from cutting it in half to making that half, halved again as they suggested in it the form of tax cuts. Then didn't vote for it. -Absolutely refusing to raise the Debt ceiling after they raised the debt ceiling 19 times for George W. Bush, resulting in 4 trillion dollars of spending. George W. Bush came into office with 180 billion dollars in surplus and left with over 13 trillion dollars in debt. He fucked up. He owns the whole enchilada. And it isn't the first time a fucking conservative fucked up so royally. It's high time to get the arsonists out of the fucking way..and send in the REAL firefighters. Obama..STOP TALKING TO REPUBLICANS. They don't like yoiu. They never will.
