2nd term: Will Obama still blame G.W. Bush?

According to Gallup — hardly considered a conservative leaning pollster — the newly sworn-in President Barack Obama enters his second term with problematic ratings that are among the lowest of post-WWII presidents.

Dropping his middle name and replacing it with “H.” during today’s swearing-in ceremony, although he insisted on using Hussein during his first inaugural, does nothing to mitigate who this man actually is

As recently as this past November, FOUR YEARS into his presidency, Obama continued to blame his predecessor George W. Bush for everything from the creek rising to cottage cheese going bad in the refrigerator. Where will he place the blame for his inadequacies going forward?

    Obama is a far leftist ideologue intent on bringing this country to its knees. Unfortunately the masses have become so dumbed down by the unionized public education system that they have no idea what is contained in our Constitution and Bill of Rights, so they have no knowledge of the roots of the liberty we have to protect and cherish. They’ve been fed political correctness and undereducated on history and Western Civilization. They’re being taught historical revisionism and relativism that marginalizes American greatness. They’ve grown up watching an American president shamefully bow to Muslim kings and political tyrants. The old bumper stickers used to say, “If you can read this, thank a teacher.” Now they should say, “Did you vote for the destruction of the USA? Thank a unionized teacher.”

    Take some time to acquaint yourself with this informative post: “Obama Economic Plan: Overwhelm the System to Destroy Capitalism and Freedom.”

    I wish I didn’t have to agree with your dismal view and predictions, but you are so on target!

    I just finished reading the well written linked article. This guy obviously understands the problems we face as a nation under Obama’s socialist leadership. As a patriot and parent, I sincerely hope we can right our great nation. I pray we can. I fear we can’t.

    You heard it differently than I did then…I heard the judge and Obama say “Hussein”. G.W. Bush has been blamed for much by the Dems. Bush was a man who meant well but two needless wars and a real estate bubble that burst wreaked havoc on the country and that will probably be his legacy.

      What the heck are you attempting to say here? It’s incomprehensible. Have you forgotten to take your meds?

    It’s time we faced some hard facts about Liberals and their stranglehold on the media. They have a bitterly ruthless streak we can’t even comprehend. I apologize for the length, but this is word for word factual and needs to be read. This is the advice CBS Political Director John Dickerson gave to Obama:

    Go for the Throat!

    Why if he wants to transform American politics, Obama must declare war on the Republican Party.
    — A second inaugural suggests new beginnings, but this one is being bookended by dead-end debates. Gridlock over the fiscal cliff preceded it and gridlock over the debt limit, sequester, and budget will follow. After the election, the same people are in power in all the branches of government and they don’t get along. There’s no indication that the president’s clashes with House Republicans will end soon.

    — The challenge for President Obama’s speech is the challenge of his second term: how to be great when the environment stinks. Enhancing the president’s legacy requires something more than simply the clever application of predictable stratagems. Washington’s partisan rancor, the size of the problems facing government, and the limited amount of time before Obama is a lame duck all point to a single conclusion: The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat.

    Obama’s only remaining option is to pulverize. Whether he succeeds in passing legislation or not, given his ambitions, his goal should be to delegitimize his opponents. Through a series of clarifying fights over controversial issues, he can force Republicans to either side with their coalition’s most extreme elements or cause a rift in the party that will leave it, at least temporarily, in disarray.

    … This approach is not a path of gentle engagement. It requires confrontation and bright lines and tactics that are more aggressive than the president demonstrated in the first term. He can’t turn into a snarling hack. The posture is probably one similar to his official second-term photograph: smiling, but with arms crossed.

    The president already appears to be headed down this path, Dickerson says. He has admitted he’s not going to spend much time improving his schmoozing skills; he’s going to get outside of Washington to ratchet up public pressure on Republicans. He is transforming his successful political operation into a governing operation. It will have his legacy and agenda in mind—and it won’t be affiliated with the Democratic National Committee, so it will be able to accept essentially unlimited donations. The president tried to use his political arm this way after the 2008 election, but he was constrained by re-election and his early promises of bipartisanship. No more. Those days are done.

    There you have it from a leftwing network executive!

    Watch Obama at his last inaugural juxtaposed with what followed in his administration. His picture should be next to the word “phoney” in the dictionary.

    Ah, those classy Dimocrats…they actually booed U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee, when he attended the swearing-in ceremony today.
