    I voted for Obama, and think he's doing a better job than his predecessor, but the finger pointing routine is getting old.

    Everything's always about the mess he inherited, not the flaws in his current plans to fix things. I don't remember Clinton running around talking about Bush Sr like this, maybe Hillary should challenge Obama in 2012. She's got more balls than he does.

    Finger pointing is all partisans can do, it's all their minds allow them to do, it's always the other guy's fault no matter who it is. When we get a president who never mentions past presidents in office we will see real change, until then, they are just partisan freaks.

    I'd love for you to find us even one example of either.... and link it here.

    And please, an actual video or actual news report, not "think progress" garbage?

    There is no way that Obama could win a second term. He'll be lucky if he finishes this one.

    You guys said no way he would win last time and you were dead wrong. Who's gonna beat him? Have you seen your sides approval ratings? Dismal.

    If Hill mounts a challenge, he'll likely lose his own party's nomination. Talk about making history! That would be the only way he keeps from getting re-elected.

    Hillary will never be president. Hillary is a good old boy who won't fix anything because she's in bed with the lobbyists too.

    Don't say so is Obama, because that would contradict your whole Obama's a socialist theory.

    Good point. While there were many issues I had with President Bush, playing the blame game was not one of them. He or others in the administration would use illustrations from history, what worked, what didn't work, but accusing his predecessor of whatever problems he was having was not in his vocabulary even when there was major justification for doing that.

    President Obama did not directly create the economic issues he inherited, but he pushed an unjustifiable mega hundreds of billions stimulus bill on the theory that we couldn't wait, we had to save jobs NOW, we had to get people back to work NOW. And since he hasn't created a single job other than 60,000 new government jobs more than six months into the effort, they now tell us that they never expected it to work this year and it won't really kick in until sometime next year??????? And that's all Bush's fault? Give me a break.

    We were told that we have to pass Cap and Trade NOW lest our planet incinerate into a cremated cinder due to Bush's failed energy policies. Well Bush's energy policies left something to be desired, but BECAUSE he was addressing global warming, not because he wasn't. But somehow global warming is now Bush's fault.

    We are told that we have to pass a multi-trillion dollar healthcare bill that will dismantle our existing system and institute total government control NOW or everything will come crashing down. Why? Because the Bush administration didn't do it. And we have to do it NOW despite the fact that more than 80% of Americans are happy with their healthcare and strong majority happy with the cost of their healthcare. The government already insures the poor and most of the estimated 47 million uninsured are only temporarily uninsured, are voluntarily uninsured, or are in the country illegally and NONE of these are denied emergency healthcare.

    I don't fault those who like and admire President Obama. But gee whiz people. How gullible are we willing to be here?
