And, if Democrats, cheap votes!

Obama didn't crerate the problem. He inherited it. No doubt he'll pass it on to his successor. But what he can't do is continue to blame Bush for everything that his administration is struggling with.

Obama now joins Jimmy Carter as the only president I can remember so lacking in class as to ruthlessly demean his predecessors. He did so in his inaugural address with Bush sitting right there and he hasn't stopped. Thuggery as politics may be the norm in Chicago but I expect more grace, finesse and statesmanship from a president. Obama comes up woefully short on those counts.
I'm glad you admitted he inherited most of the current problem, however not sure what you mean by lacking in class he's only been in office 2 years, he has to keep explaining to the clueless public that most of this is not his fault and him being blamed for everything is not fair. Any president would be in deep water right now, I'm not sure what people expect him to do in two years? Walk on water? He's doing a good job given the circumstances.

Simple. Do what real men do. Suck it up and deal with it. Remember Harry Truman's "The Buck Stops Here?" Obviously a concept unheard of in Obama's philosophy.

Only if you're dealing with "men" who really aren't!
