    Here's an opinion piece by Chuck Green who writes "Greener Pastures" for the Denver Post Aurora Sentinel...one of the more liberal papers in the country. Additionally, Mr. Green is a lifelong Democrat...so this is rather a stunning piece...

    Obama is victim of Bush's failed promises!
    Barack Obama is setting a record-setting number of records during his first term in office:
    Largest budget ever. Largest deficit ever. Largest number of broken promises ever.
    Most self-serving speeches ever. Largest number of agenda-setting failures ever. Fastest dive in popularity ever!

    Wow! Talk about change.

    Just over two years ago, fresh from his inauguration celebrations, President Obama was flying high. After one of the nation's most inspiring political campaigns, the election of America 's first black president had captured the hopes and dreams of millions. To his devout followers, it was inconceivable that a year later his administration would be gripped in self-imposed crisis.

    Of course, they don't see it as self-imposed. It's all George Bush's fault !

    George Bush, who doesn't have a vote in congress and who no longer occupies The White House, is to blame for it all.

    He broke Obama's promise, to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.

    He broke Obama's promise, to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.

    He broke Obama's promise, to end earmarks.

    He broke Obama's promise, to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.

    He broke Obama's promise, to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.

    He broke Obama's promise, to make peace with direct, no precondition talks with America 's most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.

    He broke Obama's promise, to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.

    He broke Obama's promise, to end no-compete contracts with the government.

    He broke Obama's promise, to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.

    He broke Obama's promise, for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.

    He broke Obama's promise, to have chosen a home church to attend Sunday services with his family by Easter.

    Yes, it's all George Bush's fault! President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the never-ending failed Bush administration.
    If only George Bush wasn't still in charge, all of President Obama's problems would be solved. His promises would have been kept, the economy would be back on track, Iran would have stopped its work on developing a nuclear bomb and would be negotiating a peace treaty with Israel . North Korea would have ended its tyrannical regime, and integrity would have been restored to the federal government.

    Oh, and did I mention what it would be like, if the Democrats, under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, didn't have the heavy yoke of George Bush around their necks? There would be no ear marks, no closed-door drafting of bills, no increase in deficit spending, no special-interest influence (unions), no vote buying ( Nebraska, Louisiana ).

    If only George Bush wasn't still in charge, we'd have real change by now.

    All the broken promises, all the failed legislation and delay (health care reform, immigration reform) is not President Obama's fault or the fault of the Democrat-controlled Congress. It's all George Bush's fault !

    Take for example the attempt of Eric Holder, the president's attorney general, to hold terrorists' trials in New York City . Or his decision to try the Christmas Day underpants bomber as a civilian.

    Two disastrous decisions.

    Certainly those were bad judgments based on poor advice from George Bush!

    Need more proof?

    You might recall when Scott Brown won the election to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts, capturing "The Ted Kennedy Seat", President Obama said, Brown's victory was the result of the same voter anger that propelled Obama into office in 2008. People were still angry about George Bush and the policies of the past 10 years. And they wanted change.

    Yes, according to the president, the voter rebellion in Massachusetts , was George Bush's fault.

    Therefore, in retaliation, they elected a Republican to the Ted Kennedy seat, ending a half-century of domination by Democrats. It is all George Bush's fault !

    Will the failed administration of George Bush ever end, and the time for hope and and change ever arrive ???

    Will President Obama ever accept responsibility for something / anything?

    The Democrats are smart enough to see Obama is going down in flames come November but they don't want the party to go down with him, thus they are trying to distance themselves to save face and win in 2016.

    Then if by some miracle Obama does win, they wil fall at his feet declaring him the true Messsiah and they were wrong to doubt him. They will ask forgiveness and say it is truly a message from God he is the one and of course he has a mandate given to him by the people to further change (destroy) this country.

    Don't ever for one second think these people are coming out of the darkness and into the light. They eat their own to survive.
