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?


GOP Lawmakers: Romney needs to distance himself from Bush

By Molly K. Hooper - 07/01/12 06:00 AM ET
Republican lawmakers say Mitt Romney should distance himself from former President George W. Bush.

Such a move, they say, would take away a key political advantage from President Obama, who has repeatedly suggested Romney would embrace Bush-like policies in the White House.

Polls show a majority of voters blame Bush for the ailing economy. And while Bush is not on the ballot this year, some Democrats privately acknowledge that the Bush blame factor is a key reason why Obama has a narrow lead over Romney.

Freshman Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) who rode the wave of anti-incumbency fervor into the House in 2010, said Romney should firmly separate himself from Bush’s economic policies.

“Many of us, myself included, got into politics because we were appalled at the Bush record on spending,” Mulvaney said in an interview with The Hill.

Mulvaney, who ousted veteran Democratic lawmaker John Spratt, said his party made mistakes on spending in the early 2000’s, and should be the “first ones to admit it … and to do better next time.”

Other Republican lawmakers, including those in leadership positions, admit that the GOP lost its way during Bush's tenure when government spending spiked.

According to a recent Gallup poll, 68 percent of respondents said Bush is responsible for a “great deal or a moderate amount” of current economic woes,
while only 52 percent blamed Obama. Gallup has tracked “blame assessment” since six months after Obama took office; when 80 percent blamed Bush, and 32 percent blamed Obama. Since mid-2010 however, the numbers settled into the current range.

Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) said Romney needs to be politically savvy and oppose unpopular programs signed into law by the 43rd president.

“Some of these programs are not popular, like No Child Left Behind and the [Troubled Asset Relief Program]. I think [Romney’s] made it abundantly clear: no more bailouts. Bush also did a stimulus program, $168 billion in May of '08. And so he can say, 'I'm not doing stimulus programs,'" Kingston said.

The presumptive GOP presidential contender does not need to be disrespectful in opposing prior Bush programs and policies, wrote Jonah Goldberg in a column for the National Review titled, “Memo to Mitt: Run Against Bush.”

“So long as Romney is respectful in how he frames his criticisms of GOP spending under Bush, most rank-and-file Republicans and movement conservatives will probably applaud as well,” Goldberg wrote in an online post-script to a lengthy editorial encouraging Romney “to turn the tables on Obama and make Obama defend his continuation of Bush’s spending binge.”

Early Romney-supporter Rep. John Campbell (R-Calif.) mostly agrees with Goldberg. He said that the former Massachusetts governor shouldn’t go out of his way to attack Bush, but should say that certain Bush-era programs should be nixed.

“I don’t think Mitt Romney needs to defend or attack what George Bush did. Romney needs to say, ‘I’m Mitt Romney, I’m now. That was George Bush, that was then. Here’s what I’m going to do now,” Campbell explained.

The Bush family has embraced Romney's candidacy. Bush, former President George H. W. Bush and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) have backed him. And Jeb Bush has been mentioned as a possible contender to serve on the 2012 GOP ticket.

In 2008, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) had a tough time distinguishing himself from Bush, despite his independent streak and bitter 2000 primary against Obama's predecessor.

Obama has invoked McCain on many occasions this year to drive home his point that Romney is an extreme candidate. Obama has noted that McCain and he have similar positions on climate change, immigration and campaign finance reform.

Mulvaney said Romney needs to take on prior GOP missteps to prove that he’s not afraid to challenge his own party.

“People want to know that you're not just a party hack who's going to do just what the Republicans want just because it's a Republican idea,” Mulvaney said.

Still, one veteran GOP lawmaker thinks that Romney shouldn’t fall into the trap of assessing blame.

Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), former head of the House GOP campaign arm, contends that Romney needs to keep the spotlight firmly on Obama’s record.

“[Democrats] are going to say whatever they are going to say anyway. They spent four years running against George Bush. They are going to spend four more months doing the same thing. If I were Gov. Romney, I wouldn’t take the bait. I’d keep it exactly where it belongs: the president’s performance,” Cole said.

A Republican strategist close to Romney’s campaign told The Hill earlier this year that the likely strategy would be to avoid discussing Bush’s two terms in office, even when asked directly about him.

Sounds like many of your fellow cult members recognize that not only was GW Bush at fault for the Bush Bust and the current economy- but that the majority of voters in the country recognize it to... And so the less they want to remind voters that GW was a Repub, let alone even existed....

OMG you just can help yourself can you Oldtimer :roll: The article was about Obama's broken promises and you can't seem to grasp the Idea your hero has failed to live up to the hype the leftwing media piled on him.

Face it Obama lied his way through a successful campaign four years ago and for the first three and one half years of his Administration by BLAMING BUSH but now even the LEFTWING MEDIA types are waking up.

We warned you it was only a matter of time before his incompetence and lying was going to catch up with him and finally it has. He has the Leftwing media questioning his crap now and Democrat Senators and House Members are fleeing his corrupt filled Administration. The Blaming Bush for his broken promises isn't going to get him through another election HE HAS A RECORD NOW THAT HE CAN'T HIDE. No amount of Hollyweird campaign donations is going to change the fact he loves golf, expensive taxpayer funded vacations, flying around on Air Force One, is a wannabe late night TV rockstar with no ambition to be the leader of the free world. He is the most partisan President in US History and has divided the country further than most thought possible with his race and class bating rhetoric, He surrounds himself with the most radical people he can find to push his SOCALIST agenda He is nothing but a GLORY SEEKER NARSISSIT who doesn't care who he endangers to achieve his self serving, ego boosting goals. It is complete idiots like you that are his ENABLERS by continually defending him at all cost to a once Great Nation. :roll:
