Barack Obama is setting
a record-setting number of records during his first year in
Largest budget ever. Largest deficit ever. Largest number of
broken promises ever. Most self-serving speeches ever. Largest number of
agenda-setting failures ever. Fastest dive in popularity ever.
Just one year ago, fresh from his inauguration

Yes, it’s all
George Bush’s fault. President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the
never-ending, failed Bush administration.
If only George Bush wasn’t
still in charge, all of President Obama’s problems would be solved. His promises
would have been kept, the economy would be back on track, Iran would have
stopped its work on developing a nuclear bomb and would be negotiating a peace

still angry about George Bush and the policies of the past 10 years, and they
Yes, according to the president, the voter rebellion in
Massachusetts was George Bush’s fault.
Therefore, in retaliation,
they elected a Republican to the Ted Kennedy seat, ending a half-century of
domination by Democrats.
It is all George Bush’s fault.
