One of the memories I'll always have of the Obama years is that he refused to ever take responsibility for anything. He used the excuse I heard in TV just like you for everything from the IRS scandal to Hillary's emails. Hell, John Stewart called him out on that bullshit excuse. Now I may be wrong here and maybe, in fact, his people did hide things from him but does anyone really believe him when he says stuff like this.
Or how about Obama and Hillary in the wake of the Benghazi attacks that killed four including an ambassador? Neither took responsibility and instead blamed it on a You Tube anti-Islam video that was seen by about twenty people prior to them noting it. They not only arrested the film maker and held him for an extended period of time but also said to the families that this was the cause while standing in front of their flag-draped coffins and sent Susan Rice out to tell the lie on all the Sunday shows. Instead of accepting responsibility and saying we reacted poorly they neglected it and went with an implausible excuse that was never followed up by the media. In fact, they knew it was a terror attack before it even happened.
Just two days ago we have Obama claiming the following:
"We should take great pride in the progress that we've made over the last eight years. That's the bottom line. No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland." --President Obama, remarks at MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, Fla., Dec. 6, 2016
I'm guessing the victims of the Orlando night club massacre, San Bernardino, Fort Hood and the Boston Marathon bombing may disagree.
And now we have another uber-liberal who shirks responsibility. NYC Mayor Bill DiBlasio is claiming that it's Michael Bloomberg's fault that homelessness in NY City is rocketing up. Reality tells us that DiBlasio's horrible policies are 100% blame. Believe me, I'm no supporter of Bloomberg, he's a gun-grabbing liberal as well but at least one who accepted responsibility for things going wrong.
How we went from Democratic President Harry S. Truman explaining that the buck stopped with him and John Kennedy accepting blame for the failed Bay of Pigs scheme to liberals denying anything that goes wrong on their watch had anything to do with them. Obama was sure as hell happy to claim he got bin-Laden speaking as if he donned tactical gear, night observation devices and shot the terrorist himself but there's no doubt if the op went south he would've blamed the military for everything.
Hillary and her cronies still blame fake news for her loss even though it was the most poorly run campaign in recent memory. Just as she blamed others for the email fiasco.
This would be another reason Trump won and an important lesson for those who wish to run. Act like an adult, take responsibility for your actions and move on. You keep your dignity and credibility intact that way.
