I find it mysterious how everything bad that occurs during Obama's Presidency is Bush's fault and every thing good that happens is attributed directly to Obama.

It is Bush's fault that Obama is President. Isn't that enough?

Well said Mr.Paine

The impression I get from listening to the right and Fox News is that Obama destroyed the country the day he was elected and anything good is just a fluke or leftover Bush policies.

So I guess it depends on who you listen to.

The Rod says: "I find it mysterious how everything bad that occurs during Obama's Presidency is Bush's fault and every thing good that happens is attributed directly to Obama."

That's not the case and you know it.

Gas prices have gone down. Do the idiots credit Obama? Nope. And honestly, that's not his responsibility anyway. Energy prices are set worldwide.

On the other hand, Bush left a huge mess for anyone to clean up.

Add to that the fact that republicans have vowed to obstruct anything Obama tries to do so they can make him a one term president and you get the situation we have now - lots of Bush's unresolved garbage and no credit for Obama for any of the things he has managed to do even with obstructionist republicans in both houses of Congress.

First of all all the bad things didn't just "occur" when Obama was elected. They have continued to occur from the train wreck that preceded him in office, and thanks in part to half of our congress that refuses to help solve the problems.

OF course people credit Obama for gas prices. We had threads on this forum thanking Obama for lower gas prices.

Also, if you want to discuss obstructionism, ask Reid to allow bills to be voted on. He blocks everything he doesn't like and then whines when the Republicans veto anything and calls them the party of no.

In my opinion, Obama's biggest failure is not being able to reach across the aisle. He's too arrogant to do so.

I find numerous examples in these forums of people saying Dems caused the housing bubble the burst under Bush and thus are fully responsible for the recession. Or Clinton was responsible for 9/11.

Both sides play the game of blaming the other side and both side have ammunition to do so.

Not by republicans. We were pointing out how you people always blame Obama for everything and claim nothing is Bush's fault.

Two sides of the same coin - except you are wrong and refuse to admit it.

I'm not wrong. Obama has nothing to do with gas prices, up or down. You, and those who agree with you, want to give him credit for something beyond his control.

Derp, go re-read what I wrote: "Gas prices have gone down. Do the idiots credit Obama? Nope. And honestly, that's not his responsibility anyway. Energy prices are set worldwide."

Yes. You are WRONG. Again.

You're right. Both sides play the game.

The Bush tax cuts are up for voting again, Reid has blocked amendments, and the Dems haven't actually written the law, but Reid wants them to vote on the bill, sight unseen.

Where does Reid get off trying to institute spending bills in the Senate anyway? That constitutionally happens in the House. Why is Reid doing it?

It's all political. Obama can then go out and tell the sheep that the party of no blocked tax legislation but never mentioning that the bill was unconstitutional anyway.

Since you have no argument, you call me names. Why am I surprised?

Your question was, " Do the idiots credit Obama?" My answer is yes they do. Look around for the threads thanking Obama.

Edited for question mark

ROTFLMAO! You totally ignore where you got it wrong.

Typical.

The republicans had its own bill created in the Senate that would extend cuts to all small business.

Both bills would have been unconstitutional so YES both sides do it.

Where did the Republican's bill in the Senate originate? If you tell me the Senate, would you source that please?

Reid calls the Republican bill "the help Paris Hilton legislation" because it extends tax breaks to all small businesses, regardless of whether they created jobs. Neither one is likely to have a life expectancy beyond the Senate, since tax bills are supposed to start in the House.

This article clearly states that the Democrats and Republican both have a bill in the Senate that would have been problematic as you stated.

When Obama was 8 years old, he stole a candy bar from the local convenient store. It was Bush's fault.

Perhaps, but I think it might just be McConnell's way of drawing attention to what isn't' being done.

So do you mean both sides are playing games and one upmanship this election year!

Gasps!

Bottom line the Senate and White House are controlled by Dems - they have made it a line in the sand on the 250k this time. The house has the norquist pledge to worry about.

Both sides want to win but in reality nothing will happen until after the election.

these games both sides play is another reason we need a smaller government.

English teacher:

When gas prices were going up, I was in many discussions on this board where the righties were blaming Obama and predicting the end of the world. It would seem logical to me, therefore, that if Obama has the power to raise gas prices, he also has the power to lower them. Which would make thanking him for lower gas prices entirely appropriate. Of course, in reality, the whole thing's a load of crap. The Prez does not have the power to raise or lower gas prices except through price controls (shades of Jimmy Carter). Gas prices are set by that free market thing you conservatives hold so dear (except when prices go up).
