Responsibility

President Obama had two years of Democrats in control of the Congress.  He did not stop the wars, close Guantanamo, or do much else for those two years.  Democrat President Harry Truman used to say, "The buck stops here." 

Part of being a leader is to take responsibility and to set the example.  President Obama has failed to do that in his presidency.  President Obama simply tries to pass off blame onto President Bush.  Even it if was Bush's fault, it's Obama's responsibility once he took the oath.  If he could not get the job done, then he should not have run for a second term.

I believe that President Obama has failed to do much of what he promised to do in either of his runs for office.  Our nation is worse off in almost every measure.  We still have major wars in the Middle East, our economy is very slow, more people are on food stamps than ever, and vast numbers of people have given up even looking for work.  Jimmy Carter is now the second worst president we ever had; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
