What is His Fault?
Last comment by sebekm 2 months ago.

Much conversation about how the current state of affairs and who has culpability. So my question is if none of our current woes is not Nobama's fault; what is his fault? It seems any of his shortcomings are blamed on the GOP, Racism, Global Warming, etc. At what point is he held accountable for his ineptitude and consistent bumbling? Too many failures to not at least be considered to be part of the problem.

HI HMJC: Avis Wells Wisner, my 11th grade Government teacher at B.I. taught us that regardless of the political party the American public usually blames the President for National problems. Having said that, BHO is not perfect and without his own shortcomings. NO President is e.g. Nixon, Bush, Clinton, JFK, and yes Reagan.

However, it is and continues to be my position that this President is the most disrespected man ever to occupy the White House. Besides profound ideological differences between him and the opposing Party (Republicans), there is an animosity towards this President never before witnessed. At least not in my life time.

Placing total blame on this President for the scandal de jour, immigration policy failure, is not only inaccurate but is totally irresponsible. It's fires are fanned recklessly and to the detriment of Americans, by this do-nothing uncompromising Congress. This problem did not start with BHO. It will only be resolved when cooperation between the Legislature and whom ever occupies the White House comes about. I do not see that happening anytime soon.

This may freak some here out, but George Bush had some good ideas about how to deal with this problem until his Party 'elders' pulled him into another area and away from the problem. W. was from Texas and saw what was happening. He just was the victim of Karl Rove and Party ideologues and the Right Wing Hawks in Congress.

W. went to war in the Mid-East when he should have 'went to war' by sticking to his guns here in America and dealing with the burgeoning immigration problem.

Bottom line: We have had a profound and historical failure of leadership at all levels of government never before seen by Americans.

if you look back at what went on when Reagan and Clinton were president you can clearly see what's so wrong now. both of them not only reached out to congress/senate and the other party, they worked with them and compromised. congress/senate and the other party compromised too. there was no attitude of the other party has to get on "the back of the bus", and if i don't get what i want "i will go around them". to quote Obama.

Believe it or not I do not hold Nobama responsible for all of our woes. I do however think he has a whole lot more culpability than most choose not to allude to.

He has proven to not have the ability to keep pushing or chooses to stay with the full speed ahead, damn the torpedoes ideology.

The troubling part of this is I am not sure if he really thinks he has made legitimate attempts to reach across the aisle; or is he really that inept?

Now as far as the most disrespected...How much of that should he own? Respect is earned by word and deed; he has very little of either to refer to. My "list" of the administrations failures was not conjured up; it unfortunately is just a small representation of the crisis this country has endured for the last six years.

I again do concede that Congress and the Executive branch have failed at pretty much all levels. I also however also allude to what normally happens when the "CEO" fails. He is fired and we try again much akin to GEN Shinseki being asked to step down due to the failures of those he led.

2016 doesn't need a Women, Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, etc. to change things. It calls for someone with "successful" experience on the world stage to move the nation and our country back to an even keel.

At the end of the day no matter who history blames, his 8 years will be remembered for "Change We could Not Count On" and a nation divided.

Obama has failed to LEAD this country in a way which consistently produces POSITIVE RESULTS. He campaigned on "hope" and "change" and his results have been despair and disaster. Consequently, I do hold him responsible FOR ALL OUR WOES.

Current events every day demonstrate the inadequacies of this administration. Foreign policy is a mess; the laws of this country are being selectively enforced in order to pander to the left; and the general welfare of the common man and woman in this country is being IGNORED. The only solution at this point is REGIME CHANGE.

We can start the process this November by voting Republican.

We can start the process by voting out a do-nothing Congress and replace it with one that is capable of compromise.

That and electing a fresh progressively thinking Democrat of action in the Oval Office. Preferably Hillary or Elizabeth Warren.

"We can start the process this November by voting Republican."

I'll be doing exactly that tomorrow however I'll cast my vote for new blood and for someone with some experience in the world of business and not anyone who has held public office for many years.

We've had enough of the "progressively thinking" Democrats. It's time for some TRUE hope and change. That's why Warren would already be at a disadvantage if she is the nominee. Add to that the historical difficulties with one political party holding the WH for three straight terms, and you can see why the GOP HAS hope for change - providing they field a credible candidate.

I still haven't seen one emerging.
