Obama is victim of Bush's failed promises. By a democrat reporter, Chuck Green.
I think it is time that we asked George Bush to step aside so that Obama can get his presidency going.
Here's an opinion piece by Chuck Green who writes "Greener Pastures" for the Denver Post Aurora Sentinel...one of the more liberal papers in the country. Additionally, Mr. Green is a lifelong Democrat...so this is rather a stunning piece...
Obama is victim of Bush's failed promises! Barack Obama is setting a record-setting number of records during his first term in office: Largest budget ever. Largest deficit ever. Largest number of broken promises ever. Most self-serving speeches ever. Largest number of agenda-setting failures ever. Fastest dive in popularity ever!
Wow! Talk about change.
Just over two years ago, fresh from his inauguration celebrations, President Obama was flying high. After one of the nation's most inspiring political campaigns, the election of America 's first black president had captured the hopes and dreams of millions. To his devout followers, it was inconceivable that a year later his administration would be gripped in self-imposed crisis.
Of course, they don't see it as self-imposed. It's all George Bush's fault !
George Bush, who doesn't have a vote in congress and who no longer occupies The White House, is to blame for it all.
He broke Obama's promise, to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.
He broke Obama's promise, to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.
He broke Obama's promise, to end earmarks.
He broke Obama's promise, to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.
He broke Obama's promise, to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.
He broke Obama's promise, to make peace with direct, no precondition talks with America 's most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.
He broke Obama's promise, to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.
He broke Obama's promise, to end no-compete contracts with the government.
He broke Obama's promise, to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.
He broke Obama's promise, for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.
He broke Obama's promise, to have chosen a home church to attend Sunday services with his family by Easter.
Yes, it's all George Bush's fault! President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the never-ending failed Bush administration. If only George Bush wasn't still in charge, all of President Obama's problems would be solved. His promises would have been kept, the economy would be back on track, Iran would have stopped its work on developing a nuclear bomb and would be negotiating a peace treaty with Israel . North Korea would have ended its tyrannical regime, and integrity would have been restored to the federal government.
Oh, and did I mention what it would be like, if the Democrats, under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, didn't have the heavy yoke of George Bush around their necks? There would be no ear marks, no closed-door drafting of bills, no increase in deficit spending, no special-interest influence (unions), no vote buying ( Nebraska, Louisiana ).
If only George Bush wasn't still in charge, we'd have real change by now.
All the broken promises, all the failed legislation and delay (health care reform, immigration reform) is not President Obama's fault or the fault of the Democrat-controlled Congress. It's all George Bush's fault !
Take for example the attempt of Eric Holder, the president's attorney general, to hold terrorists' trials in New York City . Or his decision to try the Christmas Day underpants bomber as a civilian.
Two disastrous decisions.
Certainly those were bad judgments based on poor advice from George Bush!
Need more proof?
You might recall when Scott Brown won the election to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts, capturing "The Ted Kennedy Seat", President Obama said, Brown's victory was the result of the same voter anger that propelled Obama into office in 2008. People were still angry about George Bush and the policies of the past 10 years. And they wanted change.
Yes, according to the president, the voter rebellion in Massachusetts , was George Bush's fault.
Therefore, in retaliation, they elected a Republican to the Ted Kennedy seat, ending a half-century of domination by Democrats. It is all George Bush's fault ! Will the failed administration of George Bush ever end, and the time for hope and and change ever arrive ???
Will President Obama ever accept responsibility for something / anything?
It's Bush's Fault!
Luckily once out of office in January the indictments will start coming in and the trials and convictions. Just think the Commander in Chief of the Military convicted of Treason, which I believe that is still a capital crime. I guess the Florida Democrats head office saw ahead to the future when they had a US flag with Obama's face emblazoned on it hanging from a pole. Never thought I'd see the day a democrat would be the first to hang him. Cool idea though. NObama 2012. Hang in there Obama our hope will be here when you get changed.
Or wuz it Goldstein? !!!!!!!!
Pleeze! No jewish names. Remember our pussy cat, Marxist president is a muslim.
And Reagan was the beneficiary of Carter’s burgeoning economy and brilliant foreign policy!
For all Bush’s faults I don’t recall him ever blaming his predecessors in office for anything.

>>> obama is victim of Bush’s failed promises
Since Obama staff were so free with editing WH President Biography, I double dogdare them to add the above sentence to GWB’s page.
Great list!! It’s a keeper and sender out to everyone I know.
Funny, I read that as:
"Hang in there Obama our hope will be here when you get hanged."
Wow! For the ignorant dolt that Bush was touted to be by the liberal elite, Bush sure has a lot of insight into how to single-handedly destroy the Obozo administration. Not to mention all the power Bush must have in order to pull off all of the failures of the Obozo administration while steering completely clear of anything remotely tied to politics.
During the election cycle of 1992, George H.W. Bush lost his job after Bill Clinton hammered him relentlessly for having caused the worst economy of the last 50 years.
In fact, as CNNs Brooke Jackson has reported: Three days before Christmas 1992, the National Bureau of Economic Research finally issued its official proclamation that the recession had ended 21 months earlier. What became the longest boom in U.S. history actually began nearly two years before Clinton took office. See (See http://www.cnn.com/2001/US/10/31/jackson.recession.primer.otsc/).
By the same token, Clinton is generally perceived as having a stellar economic record during his own presidency, in spite of the fact that the economy was already starting to decline during the last year of his term after the stock market crashed in March 2000. According to a report by MSNBC: The longest economic expansion in U.S. history faltered so much in the summer of 2000 that business output actually contracted for one quarter, the government said Wednesday in releasing a comprehensive revision of the gross domestic product. Based on new data, the Commerce Department said that the GDP the countrys total output of goods and services shrank by 0.5 percent at an annual rate in the July-September quarter of 2000. See: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3676690/ns/business-stocks_and_economy/t/gdp-figures-revised-downward/.
and Bush was the beneficiary of Clinton/Greenspan’s dot.com busted bubble recession, Barney Frank’s decade of Fanny rape of the banks, and Clinton’s foreign policy failures (Clinton’s transfer of technology to the Chinese that accelerated their nuke and space weapons programs; staffers so busy stealing the “w’s off the keyboards they forgot to tell the WH about Chinese air force games of chicken with recon aircraft in the South China Sea...ooops...and of course, Bubba’s failure to arrest or capture Bin Laden when he was offered up by the Sudanese
>>For all Bushs faults I dont recall him ever blaming his predecessors in office for anything.<<
Real Men accept their realities.
Little babies whine.
And of course, obozo inherited nothing — he ASKED FOR IT!
Wait! I thought that Bush was just a puppet of Rove & Cheney. If Bush is responsible for ruining Obama’s glorious rule of American, then isn’t it really Rove and/or Cheney that deserve the credit?
Those guys are amazing.
I blame President Bush for not running out the ink on the veto pen. I said that for the entire 8 years I thought conservative values should have stopped congress.
So not to be outdone, Obama makes us all victims of his.......
Neither do I. I also don't recall him always saying me, I, me, I, me, I. Bush mostly said we, and he always gave credit to the Troops first! Unlike the usurper who did his touch-down dance taking credit from all the behind scenes people and years of dangerous work locating and deading bin Laden.
I was so angry with Bush for adding a new entitlement, but boy do I miss him now, not to mention standing strong and not apologizing for American strength and values which has made the world a better place. I actually got sick to my stomach watching bambi on his now infamous "Apology Tour". Seems others are starting to notice how weak that made us, also.
Quite the magician Bush turned out to be.
“It’s Hoover’s fault” worked for 70-odd years. The Dems expect to get similar mileage from “It’s Bush’s fault!”
This list needs to go viral!
Bush makes David Copperfield look like a rank amateur.
I know exactly what he is saying. That Bush guy can’t resist making comments about world affairs and Obamas policies. Huh?
I knew it... Bush’s Fault!!! Ho humm...
I wonder how many of the idiot Denver Post Aurora Sentinel readers will not make it to the end of the article and think that Chuck Green is serious?
