In his initial years as president, Barack Obama was quick to blame all of our failures on George Bush. But after three years in office, he takes none of the credit/blame for our financial woes, high unemployment, low wages and our involvement — not in one — but four costly wars.
The president rushed to the TV cameras to take credit for his giving the order to the Navy SEALs to take out Osama bin Laden. However, there was no rush to the TV studios to take any blame/credit for the death of 30 Navy SEALs. This other side of the agony of war received relatively little coverage by Obama or the press.
We hoped to elect a Superman but instead got someone who is slick and shallow with a suit, swagger and speech. The electorate needs to do a better job in studying all the candidates before the elections and not leave this important function to Madison Avenue.
