  •  the left's version of Obama Derangement Syndrome (7+ / 0-)

    if something bad happens(Detroit's bankruptcy) or something doesnt go right(closing Gitmo), it's singlehandedly Obama's fault.

    if something good happens(DADT repeal, DOMA struck down, CFPB created, etc), EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD should get credit for it, except Obama, who we all know probably didnt want it to happen anyway.

      wouldn't consider him representative of the left. I don't mind hard-hitting criticism of Obama when it's fair, but I find this particular cartoon to be an example of lazy and uninformed conventional wisdom. It looks like something Politico would run.

        The cartoon is lame.

        First, Obama isn't talking about the economy enough.

        Then, when he talks about the economy, it is just words.

        Step 1: Someone writes a highly misleading diary with a selective use of facts. Step 2: Someone else writes a highly misleading diary to counter the first diary with a selective use of facts. Step 3: Someone says Obama is worse than Hitler. Repeat.

        •  Republicans obstruct. Blame Obama. (0+ / 0-)

          Just like Gitmo and a long list of other issues. It's not as though Obama isn't trying to do more than give speeches. It really shouldn't surprise me anymore but it still amazes me how eager liberal ODS sufferers are to be used and manipulated by Congressional Republicans.

    •  Didn't Obama do something for the auto industry? (1+ / 0-)

      I guess we're supposed to forget about Obama saving GM and the American auto industry. ODS sufferers let Republicans off the hook for their actions because Obama is obviously the only branch of government when something bad happens.
