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.

Speaking of more excuses than sense or results.  Here is another list of leadership examples from our excuses-in-chief (feel free to add more):

  • George W. Bush
  • Worst economy since the Great Depression or it was worse than we thought
  • Japan Earthquake
  • ATMs
  • 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
  • Racists
  • Constitution
  • Chinese solar panel manufacturer
  • Big Oil
