MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - A year after his historic election, President Barack Obama sought to remind Americans on Wednesday the biggest problems he is grappling with -- from the economy to the war in Afghanistan -- are the legacy of his predecessor, George W. Bush. With his approval ratings down from once-lofty levels and Tuesday's Democratic election losses raising questions about his political clout, Obama held no special ceremony to mark the anniversary of his election as America's first black president.

And we had/have Democrats in control of both houses of Congress!
Community organizing and hating whitey was never this hard.
Ain’t that the truth, God knows what they will finally do with the decision on whether or not to put the Gitmo Detainees on trial in the US.
I hear there is practically a civil war going on right now in the Department of Defense.
I think the public is going to melt down if the 911 planner gets off because Bush didn’t read the guy his rights.
Forgot, that was Bush’s Fault too.
And most likely the last one for generations to come!
From one democrat to another, if you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen.
And by the way, the next time you're in the Oval office please realize that the buck stops there!
Love and kisses,
With children and liberals: It’s ALWAY someone else’s fault.
He is likely kicking himself for the bad luck of wining the election.
That being said, now that he’s been in the job a while, he’s figured out that he can’t make things happen just by giving speeches. Most adults know this, but I’m not sure he did as he probably believed his own press. He is probably very frustrated and (I predict) he will get burned out rather quickly. By the three year point, a lot of his enthusiasm and charisma may disappear along with his youthful appearance.
Hey Obama, try dealing with a 9/11 within 9 months of your presidency, you whiner. You would hide under your desk for a year.
You call voting for a foreigner an experiment? It will be one this Republic may never survive.
one termer, for sure
First foreign president.
-13nobama: It’s not my fault that nasty old George Bush left me with a pile of problems.
Quit whining and playing golf and wasting our tax dollars and do something productive for a change. Like taking the rest of the year off.
Perhaps they are talking about the countires that are laughing at us now for electing this lightweight?
In a way, Obama is Bush’s fault — he should’ve warned us about him together with Cheney and everyone involved with our national security.
Well then, Obama, why don't you step down and let someone with cajones take care of those problems. Someone that knows what they are doing. You skinny wimp!!!
When this guy is old sitting in the nursing home in a wheel chair waiting for his depends to be changed, he’ll tell the nurse that Bush did it!!!
We should run ads in 2012, everything that is wrong in the US is Bush’s Fault and Obama hasn’t and can’t fix it. Time to get a new leader that can.
