    I knew it.......somehow this had to be Bush's fault. Now it makes sense.
    Not exactly a "the buck stops here" kinda guy.

    Five times he blames Iraq.

    [h=2]Obama Repeatedly Blames Iraq For Lack of Support For His Syria Strike During Primetime Address[/h]

    Via transcript from Obama’s speech:
    • But I have resisted calls for military action because we cannot resolve someone else’s civil war through force, particularly after a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    Now, I know that after the terrible toll of Iraq and Afghanistan, the idea of any military action, no matter how limited, is not going to be popular. After all, I’ve spent four and a half years working to end wars, not to start them. Our troops are out of Iraq, our troops are coming home from Afghanistan, and I know Americans want all of us in Washington, especially me, to concentrate on the task of building our nation here at home, putting people back to work, educating our kids, growing our middle class.
    • First, many of you have asked: Won’t this put us on a slippery slope to another war? One man wrote to me that we are still recovering from our involvement in Iraq. A veteran put it more bluntly: This nation is sick and tired of war.
    • My answer is simple. I will not put American boots on the ground in Syria. I will not pursue an open-ended action like Iraq or Afghanistan. I will not pursue a prolonged air campaign like Libya or Kosovo. This would be a targeted strike to achieve a clear objective: deterring the use of chemical weapons and degrading Assad’s capabilities.
    • Even a limited strike will send a message to Assad that no other nation can deliver. I don’t think we should remove another dictator with force. We learned from Iraq that doing so makes us responsible for all that comes next. But a targeted strike can make Assad or any other dictator think twice before using chemical weapons.

    This is what I don't get about his defenders.

    Here is the private sector when you take over for someone else there is a time limit on how long you can blame things on your predecessor. 90 days at best. At a certain point you "own" the problems and if you've haven't fixed them you damn well better have a plan to how they'll be addressed.

    At a certain point, Obama "owns" all of the problems that comes with the Presidency. I'd say anything after the 1st year belongs to him. No matter how good/bad Bush really was, the statute of limitations on "Bush's fault" ran out in 2010. It shows incredibly poor form, poor leadership, and incompetence to routinely blame things on the last guy. The irony here is that people didn't let Bush get away with that about Clinton, not even in his first year. Yet here in 2013 Obama can still blame Bush and his supporters will nod their heads in agreement.

    Sorry, we need some real leadership on this Syria issue. At the very least we had no business committing anything to that quagmire without some serious thought and consideration. I think Obama was under the impression he could launch some drones and clean the whole thing up somehow.

    He is an utter failure as a leader and I can't believe the US gave him a second term, mostly on the assertion nothing was his fault.

    Dude, you're the President. Grow a pair already.
