"Its Happening Under Obama's Watch." Getting Old, Folks!

I'm getting tired of reading and hearing commentary that "(fill in the blank) is happening under Obama's watch". You know, crap that has been happening since BEFORE Obama took Office.

I've stated this before, and I'll state it again. When Clinton left office we had a budget surplus. When Bush took office, our country's finances took a nosedive and he lead our country into a huge budget deficit.

President Obama inherited a screwed up situation and he is doing the best he can.

I came across the following post on Twitter and I just couldn't help but respond.

From recent op ed by Richard Socarides: "hundreds of military careers have been destroyed on (obama'-) watch for no valid reason." #sotu

What about the hundreds of military careers that were destroyed during the years Bush was in office? Which brings up another thing. Just WTF was Clinton thinking when this "compromise" known as Don't Ask, Don't Tell was enacted?

I say again, only not as politely. I say this about one man, forced to deal with a screwed up House, Senate, and Supreme Court which have some selfish people who do not give a damn about the needs of the many. One man leading a nation which is more unbelievably backwards than it would care to admit.

President Obama inherited a fucked up situation and he is doing the best he can.
