Who ISN'T Obama Blaming for the Shutdown?

by Jenny Erikson

In a press conference Thursday morning, President Obama addressed the end of the government shutdown, and urged members of Congress to “move on from the manufactured crisis.” You know, because our government being unable to work together and compromise is manufactured.

So if this whole thing was a “manufactured crisis,” then who manufactured it? His normal go-to culprit in the blame game is the GOP in general, or President Bush or Rush Limbaugh specifically, but this time he went more personal.

Bloggers! Yup, we bloggers are finally getting a little credit around here. He said:

All of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio, and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do.

Ok, so I guess Rush still got a little bit of the blame, with the radio talking head comment, and then the professional activists (funny he'd blame his own side, since it's leftist activists that get paid, not conservative ones). But still. Did you know that bloggers could shut down the government? Because I didn’t. I also want to know exactly how rich he thinks us bloggers are, or how we “profit from conflict.”

Bloggers who get paid are far and few between, Mr. President-of-the-People. So sorry to burst your bubble on that one, but it’s true. And the ones that do get paid aren’t exactly making a fortune. We’re making a living.

Speaking of making a living ... bloggers don’t profit from conflict, they profit from writing about stuff that’s happening. If there’s a government shutdown going on, then that’s what they’ll write about, if that’s what they think will bring some traffic. If not, they’ll write about whatever else is going on in the news they think people will want to read. I know capitalism is a difficult concept for the Prez, but sheesh!

Anyway, I’m glad the shutdown is over, and even though President Obama wants to give me all the credit, I’m going to have to pass.

Who do you think is to blame for the shutdown?

This is why the american government won't succeed, no personal responsibility! Mr. Obama is as much to blame then anyone in congress. no one has learned anything from this crisis, and its going to happen again in jan/feb. no one is looking out for this country or its people. they're too busy playing the blame game and it infuriates me that no one is willing to put their egos and agenda aside and work together to make this country better.

I keep seeing this extraordinarily lazy answer.

Explain how it can be "all" when they don't "all" ;

Think alike

Act alike

Vote alike

And in fact, are diametrically opposed on many issues.

Thanks in advance for your answer.

The government in general are to blame.


The bloggers comment is pretty hilarious to me though. Typical man, blaming people that have nothing to do with it. lol

Oh I completely understand that. I understand that there may be the few causing all this shit but our entire government is supposed to work together, some may have been, but its a team effort, when one fails they all fail. Our government has failed its people.

I always notice he never blames himself or takes responsibility for much, if anything.

It must be nice to be that perfect.

He doesn't blame himself because he doesn't do anything.

One has to do something before one can do something wrong.
