FOX "News" Counts Bush Years as Obama's Fault

I'm having a tough time getting into the blogging swing these last several days. Possibly due to a bit of insomnia, or whatever they call it when you wake up at 5:00 am, and can't get back to sleep for two hours. Anyway, I am here, so let's get on with it!

Would a negative outcome be your fault? When both John Boehner and Mitch McConnell flat out said--immediately after Obama took over--that their number one goal was to make him a one-term president, the writing was on the wall. The weren't looking out for the country, quite the contrary.

    We'll never know if Obama's plan would have worked better if he had assistance. And don't give me "he had a filibuster-proof majority. Never happened. The Senate GOP was the most hostile, road-blocking minority ever in office.
