I realize he was voted in office, would he of won two weeks ago? I'm not sure. I think his first and only priority should have been fixing the banks. You can't just throw billions of dollars at a problem and not reform the problem that got us here. I can't stand Michael Moore but his new movie has a lot truth in it and its not just Bush's problem either.Obama has blame also.
It's more complicated than it looks, in real life

Obama basically did nothing his first year, thats not Bush's fault, Was Dubya solely responsible for this countries economic collapse? Of course he wasn't. All that said, Obama has yet to prove he's the right man for the job.
So what about Limbaugh and Hannity.

You didn't hear Bush blaming Clinton. Not publicly at least. He wouldn't even blame him during the campaign. That made a lot of republicans mad.

See the difference? Limbaugh is a radio guy. Biden is an elected "servant"

Radio guys seem to have taken a political seat lately.
They are not elected and they have no political authority.

Yet..many seem to think they run the party.

They are TALK SHOW HOSTS.

Is Oprah the spokesperson for the Dems ?

We no longer have servants of the people, we have dictators, despots, autocrats. The people in DC vote for what serves them best rather than what serves the people.

How do they do this?

Last I heard they got on the radio and TV and talked. How does this equate to running a party? Do they have say so as to who candidates are?

I think that Bush took responsibility for those two wars.

Now what has Obama taken responsibility for? Nothing! What a joke of a president. Everything is someone else's fault. I thought the president was supposed to lead, not duck for cover and try to find a scapegoat for failures. He will be blaming Bush when they bury him for having an oak, not a walnut, casket.

[quote=John1960;13484678]Vice President Joe Biden, in a visit to George W. Bush's hometown, said Friday that President Barack Obama's ability to sell his agenda to Americans has been hampered by the failures of his predecessor.

Speaking at two Dallas fundraisers, Biden said the Bush administration soured the American people on government and politics with its out-of-control spending, severe job losses and mishandling of two wars.


Biden is an Idiot. Their whole campaign was all about "CHANGE" They didn't run against McCain they ran against Bush. Maybe the American people are starting to wake up and realize this agenda is not the "CHANGE" they wanted. Does he really think Obama is controlling spending and keeping Americans employed?
