Still blaming Bush
It's 2012 and the left is still blaming Bush for their own failures.
We have historical precedent with which to measure Obama and his policies. For example, President Reagan inherited many of the same problems that Obama did. However, Reagan's policies had already led to a record-setting economic expansion by this time in his first term. Obama and his policies still have us mired deeply in recession.
Instead of being adults and accepting responsibility for their actions and policies Obama and his allies in Congress are still trying to blame President Bush, despite the fact that it's been more than three years since Bush did anything substantial as President and more than five years since Democrats held sway in Congress (a Congress that Obama was part of, no less).
Speaking of Congress, since the Republicans regained the House after the 2010 elections they have passed numerous bills aimed at improving the economy, balancing the budget, etc. only to have the Senate (still #occupied by Democrats) block them.
When our children act this way we send them to a time-out to rethink their actions. I think that's a great way to solve our problems with the Democrats in 2012. Send them to a political time-out in November so they can reconsider their actions.
"We need true tax reform that will at least make a start toward restoring for our children the American Dream that wealth is denied to no one, that each individual has the right to fly as high as his strength and ability will take him. . . . But we cannot have such reform while our tax policy is engineered by people who view the tax as a means of achieving changes in our social structure."
