    notion that this is ALL being put on Obama's back.

    Why shouldn't it be put on Obama's back? Who else appointed Tim Geithner, a man who should have been indicted with RICO laws for his various actions of malfeasance when he was the head of the NY Fed back in Autumn 2008? But instead, Obama makes him the head of Treasury.

    And how about how Obama   re-appointed Ben Bernanke? Bernanke is the guy who handed out some 15 to 16 trillions of dollars to his buddies in Big Financial Firms across the globe. None of them have to loan this money to anyone on Main Street; they are "Too Big To Fail" while we normal people are just "Too Small TO Survive."

    Eighty percent of what any Administration does is accomplished via appointments. Judging by his appointments, with hard right wingers in office at the FDA, at FCC, at Treasury, at the Fed, etc., Obama is to the far right of Dwight D Eisenhower, Richard Nixon and even Barry Goldwater!

    The only reason he survived for another four years is that the Republicans decided that pissing off 51% of the electorate was a really sane way to win the election. And don't forget - since so much of the billion dollars of campaign funds were inside Super Pac's - Mittens has a lot of money at his disposal, certainly enough to keep him too sad that he didn't have to move into the WH.

    Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.
