So…Whose fault IS it anyway?
When George W. Bush was the president, apparently, the economy was his fault.
Obama said so.
Obama told us back then that a half trillion dollar deficit was irresponsible.
Obama told us it was…”Unpatriotic.”
It was Bush’s fault.
Now, the economy under Obama is…Bush’s fault.
While Bush was operating with a half trillion dollar deficit, Obama has increased that deficit to $1.2 – $1.3 trillion dollars. Is the NEW deficit irresponsible? Is it…”Unpatriotic???”

“As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.” Gore Vidal
Nowhere is the contrast between Barack Obama, as defined by his rhetoric (the “Obama 1″ referred to in the first part of this series) and Barack Obama as defined by his actions (“Obama 2″) greater than in his foreign policy — and especially his policy toward Israel.
What if we put aside Barack Obama’s rhetoric, and instead look exclusively at his documented record over a period of decades, up to and including the present?
The first thing that is most striking about that record is the long string of his mentors and allies who were marked by hatred of the United States, and a vision of the world in which the white, Western nations have become prosperous by oppressing and exploiting the nonwhite, non-Western nations.

On one issue after another, President Obama says he can’t wait for Congress to act. This is the same justification presidents have always used when they find the checks and balances required by democracy to be inconvenient. That preference for ruling as an unaccountable monarch is precisely what our founders feared.
Evasion of Constitutional Checks
President Obama has said he would prefer to rule without interference from the elected representatives of the American people. His record shows a disturbing willingness to do just that.
The president’s arrogant approach to governing disregards important constitutional structures — such as the Appointments Clause of the Constitution — and displaces Congress in favor of unelected bureaucrats and czars.
Bipartisan legislating has been replaced by unilateral executive rule-making. Oversight has given way to unaccountability.
Unfortunately for the American people, President Obama’s regulatory over-reach ignores their views and circumvents their elected representatives.
