  • he carries a third of the responsiblility. there are more people than the president who get to decide what happens.

  • who says the parents don't get blamed. i blame parents if it's their fault. i don't blame the president for the state of the US. he did the best he could.

  • I do blame them.
    The president gets the blame for the entire country. It is his job. He carries that responsibility as part of the job.

  • Parents and Presidents are where the buck stops. Kids are typically only as good as the parents that raise the. The country will only be as good as its leader.

  • It depends on how they messed up- I blame congress AND the president- but- I think parents get blamed all the time. If you are talking about parents who have kids with special needs and you aren't aware of it and think they are just bad kids- then I don't think we should blame parents.
