OMG! MSNBC says Bush was RIGHT about North Korea

Published on Apr 13, 2012 by 

I was sure GW was going to get blamed for the North Korean‘s defiance of our position on them building nukes and nuke delivery systems but to my surprise GW was given credit for NOT listening to Powell and the rest of the politicians who wanted us to work with North Korea.

AWESOME! Obama’s Hall of Blame

by KEITH KOFFLER on MARCH 23, 2012, 9:18 AM

President Obama has passed the buck to others – mainly George W. Bush – for no less than 13 problems that characterize his presidency, suggesting time and again that his own policies are not to blame for his difficulties and he is simply doing the best that can be done with the cards he was dealt.

Even so, Obama is aggressively staking a claim for successes for which Bush shares significant or nearly all responsibility, including increased drilling for oil and natural gas, the end of the Iraq War, and the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

What follows is a roster of Obama’s efforts to assign blame for 13 problems that prevail or have faced him during his presidency. In several cases, the quotes here are just one or two of many that show Obama passing the buck on a particular issue.

Once Upon a Time, George W. Bush Was Blamed, Attacked and Mocked For High Gas Prices By The Leftist Press and Democrats, But Today…. Obama Gets A Pass, Hypocrisy? You bet your sweet a**!

U.S. War Casualties in Afghanistan Have TRIPLED in Less Than 3 Years Under Obama

CNS News By Edwin Mora
October 3, 2011

Barack Obama has not yet served three full years as commander in chief, but the number of U.S. casualties in the 10-year-old Afghanistan war has now tripled since Obama was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009.

On that day, the total casualty count for the then-7-year-old Afghan war was 569. As of Sept. 30 of this year, it was 1,698.

The 1,129 additional U.S. casualties in Afghanistan since Obama took office equals 66.5 percent of all U.S. casualties there for the duration of the war.

With three months still to go, 2011 is already the second deadliest year of the war.

From January through September 2011, 340 U.S. service members have been killed in Afghanistan–only 22 fewer than the 362 who were killed  during the same span in 2010, which was the deadliest year so far for U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

The top three deadliest years of the war — 2010 (497 deaths), 2011 (340), 2009 (303) — have occurred under President Obama’s tenure.

At least 38 U.S. troops died in Afghanistan in September, making last month the second deadliest September of the war, exceeded only by September 2010, when 42 Americans died.

August 2011 was the deadliest month of the conflict, according to CNSNews.com’s tally. Seventy-one U.S. troops died in August, including 30 on a helicopter that was shot down by insurgents on August 6.

The top five deadliest months of the war, which began October 7, 2001, have taken place under Obama’s presidency — August 2011 (71 deaths), July 2010 (65), June 2010 (60), October 2009 (58), and August 2010 (55). Historically, the Afghan summer months of June to September have seen the most fatalities.

The 1,129 military fatalities under Obama’s watch are almost double the 569 that took place under the eight years of the Bush administration.
