    Today in his speech Obama gave everyone further proof how out of touch he is by adding to his previous list of reasons for our economic woes. We can now officially blame our problems on :

    The Arab spring *new addition*
    European economy *new addition*
    The Japanese disaster *new addition*
    Atm machines
    Big business
    Tea Party
    Republicans
    The rich
    Low taxes
    Lack of regulations
    Wallstreet
    Joe The Plumber
    Me
    You
    Everyone else
    The mean media
    Talk radio
    Fox News



    To date no current mention has been made about :

    Bad policy making on his part
    His healthcare law
    His tax wishes
    The new epa regulations
    The ban on oil drilling
    The insane spending
    The stimulus
    Dodd Frank
    The 2 years he controlled congress and did nothing


    I'm beginning to think he is unfamiliar with the concept of "accepting responsibility for your mistakes"
    I honestly don't see things getting much better until he is out of office.

    No one else sees a problem here? A lack of accountability? A lack of being willing to self correct?

    The one in the Gulf coast. The one where the companies got tired of the bs and took American jobs elsewhere.

    Yea, that one.

    You made it sound like we banned drilling for oil in this country. Which is most certainly not the case. Especially considering how the U.S is a leading country in oil drilling.

    Link?

    Please provide the link showing the US is a leading country in oil drilling.

    Also, this administration has banned all offshore drilling, which was overturned by the courts and then ignored by Obama.

    I followed your link to the original source:

    19,000 Jobs Worth $1.1 Billion in Wages Lost Nationally Since Offshore Drilling Moratorium Imposed | CNSnews.com

    Plus, the numbers seem to be from a study. Got anything other than that? Official numbers maybe?

    Obama reminds me of the guys who go on Maury and fail lie detector tests or test positive for paternity and then proceed to insist the tests are flawed while denying all personal responsibility.
