It’s a valid question. For nearly a year now, every time that Obama addresses the nation the first few pages of his teleprompter are heavily laden with blame for the previous Bush Administration. It doesn’t matter what problem is being addressed on that day. The seemingly never ending mantra is that it’s all the fault of the Bush Administration, that the mess was placed in the lap of an unwitting Obama who is now forced to come to grips with the problem and solve it once and for all.
All incoming Presidential administrations utilize this device to some extent, but Obama has perfected the technique and done so with such fluidity that it rivals the creation of a new art form. There is no doubt that we are witnessing the sublimeness of one of the truly great masters of modern day politics. This guy is good.
It doesn’t hurt to have a fully complicit “lame stream” media that laps all this up, like a six week old kitten to warm milk. If this juvenile tactic were being used by a conservative administration, the “old’ media, like the old dog, repeating the same old, tired tricks, would be all over this type of behavior. But alas, when the offending person has the orgasmic, Messianic appeal of the chosen one, no such criticism is raised. The dog, quickly becomes the kitten and simply asks……Got Milk?
So, the question remains. Will Obama finally accept the complete responsibility of his office? I wouldn’t count on it. Why should he? Like the spoiled rotten teen, who never takes responsibility for anything he does, Obama is far more likely to continue acting like the juvenile that he truly is. I mean after all, this teen has dolting parents who make excuses for him at every turn and cover his tracks whenever he really steps in it.
When you think about it, to do so would be totally out of character for him to suddenly grow up. So don’t expect him to do so on his own. It’s simply not in the cards, not until a complicit media forces him too. And that my friends, is simply not going to happen. Rest assured of that.
