The "it hasn't even been a year yet, give him time" excuse has officially expired today. The media is doing their "year in review" montages and not pulling any punches. When even NBC points out more screw ups than high points, the honeymoon is officially over.

So what's the new excuse for this year?

    I have already heard "its only been a year wait til 2012"
    I guess they are giving more of a time frame in their excuses now.

  • They will put their blinders on; refuse to take ownership of any challenges; and continue to blame the previous administration. They are pathetic cowards who are more apt to place blame then to take on challenges, own them, and fix them.

  • Well obviously many of them have awakened when you look at the polls and what happened in Mass.

  • We will continue to hear Bush started this and poor Obama was forced to take this job and inherited all the problems. lol

  • "He was better than the alternative"

    Which is always safe, since no one can accurately predict how McCain would have been in the presidency.

  • Wait - you forgot the "I didn't want an unfit mother as president who can say she can see Alaska from her house!" excuse! Ya know, because liberals don't discriminate on McCain's age, or what they heard about Palin in the media!

  • OP - to answer your question, the new excuse is that Obama's Healthcare plan failed because Scott Brown was elected. Therefore, Obama couldn't get his work done because of Republicans denying him the ability to do his job! hahahaha

  • What's your point? You say the same crap every day.

  • Yeah NP we predicted months ago it would be 'oh wait its only been a year the presidency is 4 yrs' it started off as 'its only been 6 months' and from there it progressed naturally as predicted

    Then it will be 'you were stupid because you thought it could all be fixed within a year' which NOBODY has EVER stated not once...NOBODY ever expected that that is just a way to justify in their own minds...
