An unapologetic Obama claims "the buck stops with me," but, suspiciously, refuses to fire anyone in a lack of accountability over the Christmas Day intelligence screwup and subsequent terrorism attempt. At a press conference to update the nation on what went wrong, Obama instead spread the blame out evenly over many agencies in order to conceal who's really at fault. The irrecoverable problem with this approach is since no one in the government is held accountable for failure, there's no motivation to do better next time and improve.

Yeah, we know that's where our money ends up.
Are riots in our near future...when the Obama money & power runs out?
What happens when the peoples realize...they-ain't-no Obama money a-comin.....
Or, The Buck goes to non existing zip codes, and ends up in my pocket!
“It’s everyone’s fault, so I can’t fire anyone without firing everyone, and gosh darn it, THAT would be awkward!”
It’s called spreading the guilt.
We should fire him, then.
The logical thing to do in response to this would be to immediately halt the closing of Gitmo. Think this egotist will even consider that? Hardly. Instead, he’ll try to appear statesmanlike with the old ‘The buck stops with me’, and nothing will get any better. They sense softness in this administration, and rightly so.
“The buck stops with me. I will continue to work on fixing the failed policies and systemic failures which I have inherited from the previous administration.”
Good; then resign.
Yes, Obama should be impeached or forced to resign by his own Democrat Party. Why? Simple, folks, the reasons are right in front of your eyes. First, Jones, Napolitano and Brennen are morons and sad excuses for human beings. None of them understand what protecting the American nation and her people require. They are all total failures and should have been immediately fired. Second, I listened to the full Obama remarks yesterday afternoon, and the POTUS looked and sounded like he was promoting drinking castor oil. If you, the people, believe this guy is dedicated to protecting Americans, then you must be smoking funny stuff. The only things Obama loves is himself, his socialism/communisnm/facism and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whom he worships!!!! Americans, the sooner you grasp this, the sooner our nation will take the necessary steps to protect our being and freedom!!! If you are counting on POTUS Obama to protect you and your children, forget it!!! He could care less about “any” American!!!!
yeah the buck stops there, but HE PRINTED the worthless thing.
more meaningless words from 0bama, falling into the pit
In other news, the dollar continues its freefall on world markets.
Maybe he’s telling the truth. Maybe the buck really does get stopped by him
“the buck stops here” means they could not find a way to blame Bush.
the guy who spent the past year blaming everything on Bush/Cheney, apologizing to the universe for all things American, now doesnt want to spend time finding fault when he cant dump anymore on the previous admin.
stay classy obammie
Heads need to roll starting with Janet Napolitano, CIA chief Leon Panneta and the White House terrorism adviser not to mention a good purge of the State Department. None of this will happen with weak kneed President Teleprompter.
"For the past Eight Years"My head was ready exploded at that not so vague HINT that it was all .. Bush's Fault!
These 'people' are utter disgusting.
Barry isn't running an Administration.
He's running a combination of a Freak Show and Day Care Center.
Yeah ... and in politics no one is responsible for anything (unless, of course, they’re conservative).

The likihood of the Dem Party impeaching Big O is that of the old Germany National Socialists Party doing the same to Hitler...
