Liberal Chuck Green in Colorado is a Democrat, But Now He May Have Found, He's An American First

By Nicholas Contompasis

Green lays out the many things conservatives have been telling America for two years. It's refreshing to hear the same message coming from the Left. This is more indication that middle of the road Democrats are jumping the Obama ship in droves.
Read the piece and you decide.

Obama is victim of Bush's failed promises !

By Chuck Green

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 one year 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 of last year.
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 decision 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 that 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 change ever arrive ???
Will President Obama ever accept responsibility for something / anything?
