Barack and Scott Aren't Bro's

Last Tuesday was a great day for all Americans. It truly amazing what our fellow citizens can do when they get united behind a candidate who can articulate a clear vision of what they desire to do once seated in Washington. I'm not talking about Barack Obama. He's there already and we certainly see what he's doing, most of which is counter to his promises. No, I'm referring to Scott Brown, the newly elected Senator from Massachusetts. The folks of the first tea party, did another one much to the chagrin of President Obama and the Democrats.

Of all the post-mortem comments made since, the one by Dear Leader himself is the most enlightening as broadcast by ABC News:
(BHO) "Here's my assessment of not just the vote in Massachusetts, but the mood around the country: the same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office," the president said in an exclusive interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos. "People are angry and they are frustrated. Not just because of what's happened in the last year or two years, but what's happened over the last eight years."

In the breath of one sentence BHO managed to say he is a brother to Scott Brown and the anger of Massachusetts citizens is not about his policies, but President Bush's! He's not to blame, he is in the same boat as Mr. Brown. They are in this together. Everyone is unhappy because of the past eight years, inferring Americans are angry at Bush, not him.

The President is simply delusional if he thinks Americans are looking at Bush for the leap in unemployment, 12 trillion more debt since January 20, and a democratic party that is hell bent on jumping off the cliff to embrace socialism at every turn. They know the score, Mr. President, and you've struck out.

The continued excuse used by the President, that it is Bush's fault is most revealing. This is his learned response right out of the pulpit of Reverend Wright's warped Black Victimhood dogma. Obama blames everyone else for the "mess", except to look at his own policies and take individual responsibility for their failure. This line of thinking is positively dangerous, as it leads to decisions that only perpetuate the problems facing America. Citizen's have heard this canard through much of the last year and its worn thin.

So Mr. President, suggest you quit whining about what was eight years past, accept the failures of the last 12 months, and get your act together before something else nasty hits the fan.
