The buck stops where?
“He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” – Benjamin Franklin
“There is a lie in between a promise and many excuses.” – Toba Beta
While Obama campaigned on how he wouldn’t make any excuses as President, his well-documented list of excuses is already well past legendary status. Just yesterday, amidst the predictable failures of ObamaCare’s website unveiling, Obama offered up this analogy, “Apple rolled out a new mobile operating system. And within days, they found a glitch…”
Again, instead of owning up and admitting we are experiencing some technical issues, he goes with a timeless blame deflection phrase – well if we stink so does everyone else.
Why shouldn’t we be surprised? His entire constituency is based off people with more excuses than sense and being a victim. And sadly, that constituency is growing.

- George W. Bush
- Worst economy since the Great Depression or it was worse than we thought
- Japan Earthquake
- The Euro
- The Weather
- Tea Party
- Bad luck
- Need more stimulus
- Rush Limbaugh
- Talk Radio
- Fox News
- Video about Muhammad
- Rouge IRS workers in Cincinnati
- Businesses not expanding
- Chinese solar panel manufacturer
- Big Oil
