look at this m$nbc.com shit


Obama's 'buck' still often stops with Bush
The president continues to lay blame on his predecessor for many problems



WASHINGTON - He says "the buck stops with me," but nearly a year into office President Barack Obama is still blaming a lot of the nation's troubles the economy, terrorism, health care on George W. Bush.

Over and over, Obama keeps reminding Americans of the mess he inherited and all he's doing to fix it. A sharper, give-me-some-credit tone has emerged in his language as he bemoans Washington's fleeting memory about what life was like way back in 2008.

"Yes we can"?

Try "Yes I have."

While candid about what he called his team's "screw-up" in the botched Christmas airliner attack, Obama has made a point of underlining all the good he believes his government has done, too.

"Our progress has been unmistakable," Obama said as the new year began. "We've disrupted terrorist financing, cutting off recruiting chains, inflicted major losses on al-Qaida's leadership, thwarted plots here in the United States and saved countless American lives."
