Let’s play the blame game…

by brunettebabe2012 on March 14, 2012

I know the country’s economy is not in the best shape right now but how much can we blame Obama for it current condition. I know it’s easy for us to play the blame game but let’s face it-he inherited this mess courtsey of our former Commander-in-Chief when he took office three years ago. It’s always easier to blame who’s currently in office for our country’s woes. Hell, it’s easier to give the person kudos when things are on an upswing and doing well.

Quite honestly, whoever is in office has their work cut out for them and regardless if it’s a Democrat/Liberal or Republican/Conhservative-they have some mess to clean up with the economy, etc.

Now with who’s currently running for President, there isn’t much of a choice to choose from. It’s seems to be a survival of the fittest, the current five contenders which includes Obama and the four GOP candidates are holding strong. So far, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachmann and Rick Perry have dropped out of the race and faded into political obscurity. There was talk of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie throwing his hat into the political arena and even Donald Trump was tossing the idea around. There was speculation of Nww York City mayor Mike Bloomberg joining the race.

It’s always easier to point the finger at each other’s prospective political parties and say “it’s your fault”. It has become a political pissing contest on the playground called Congress and the Senate.

You are saying dont play the blame game, well you blaming bush. Clinton screwed up the economy ( two can play at the blame game ). Also, bush didnt have the house or the senate and he still fixed the economy in 2006. obama had the house AND the senate and the economy still sucks. And you are insulting Reagan? If you are saying Obama is better than Reagan then i dont know what to tell you. Reagan was in the top three presidents in history. Reagan was the one that actually FIXED the economy

You people are ignorant. Obama was handed this mess, say for instance…you guys ripped a 3 story house down and the owner hired me to build it back. I guess it would be my fault because its not built back in 2 weeks. Its harder to push a rock up hill, than it is to push one down hill you retarded hilljacks. Republicans are only for rich business, big oil, executives, and millionaires and billionaires. No Republican president has ever had this country in good shape with there policies. Dont even say Reagan, he was terrible, he even got caught up in selling U.S arms and U.S made bombs to Iran. just remember kooks, REPUBLICANS NEED FOX NEWS TO THINK FOR THEM, DEMOCRATS THINK FOR THEMSELVES.

This is a tired untrue argument. If the current pretender-in-chief cared about our economic crisis, he would stop finding reasons to avoid creating (roughly 50,000) jobs in THIS country while allowing OTHER countries to prosper from these jobs. He should have signed on with the “Keystone XL Line.” He doesn’t care about Americans unless they are here illegally and able to vote. What a shame. What will we tell our children when there is nothing left of this country to fight for.

To Lets Play the Blame Game.. In private industry if you take on a job you best not be saying three years later that all of the problems are due to your predecessor. I think you might be out of a job. I know I have had to clean up messes. Enough excuses and too many failed policies. Time for a change!

Sadie,
I don’t agree with Erik on the most pivotal issue, whom to support to provoke the necessary change that muct occur later this year, but on what basis do you dismiss his opinion as ‘uneducated,’ and then characterize his efforts as either clumsy or infantile, ‘slamming [his] fist on a keyboard?’ No one said Obama didn’t inherit a mess. No one contended that the choices were easy. What Erik noted was a simple truth. Obama has managed to make the situation substantially worse. I get the feeling that Obama could be elected to seven terms and his obsequious supporters would still be blaming Bush. I don’t deny the hole Obama was in: I am dismayed that his answer is to keep digging.

The tyranny of Reaganomics (from the author’s profile) enabled an extended period of prosperity throughout all socioeconomics levels. What a tyrant.

Babe,

“..but let’s face it-he inherited this mess..”

Only one small (gigantic) problem with that statement: Obama accrued more debt within his first two and a half years than all of the former presidents……COMBINED! You probably know by now that I am no Bush fan by any stretch, but let’s please call that proverbial spade “a spade”. Obama needs to accept blame for his own folly. And, believe me, there’s plenty to take hold of.

Ya, Erik the Red… Dont forget everyone cried for the bail out (World included) and time was ticking and it had to be done, And dont forget Bush and his cronies forced the position. I rather enjoy comments from the uneducated slamming their fist on a keyboard trying to make a point

Sadie,

If you had read more than the first sentence of my comment, you wouldn’t need to attack Bush to try to level the complaining field. I was one of the many who was opposed to the 2008 Bush bank bailout due to the fact that I recognized its unconstitutionality from Day One. But just because Bush’s reign left much to be desired, this doesn’t excuse or negate Obama’s folly. The age old 2 wrongs don’t make a right.
