Seriously...Obama really?

Why has the man only been in office a few weeks and already so many people are blaming him for all this country's financial woes? This economy started going downhill years ago!

  • Wow. ...this question gets asked a lot.

    Because it is easy to blame "The Man" for our problems. When really it might be helpful if all of us took a better look at ourselves.

  • so many people are blaming him for all this country's financial woes

    Please provide links to where this is happening. All I see are threads pointing out how he's adding to the existing problem. I've yet to see anyone say it's all his fault - usually they point out how it's Clinton (who has even admitted it himself), Bush and the assorted congresses, which would include Senator Obama.

  • Don't have to add links. I didn't mean politicians/government blaming him. I mean the responses/blogs on the internet.

    So do I. You do understand the difference between causing a problem and making a problem worse, correct?

  • Because the repubs. don't want the blame placed where it should be. So it's easier to blame Obama. Hell, they were already blaming him the day he took office.
