Obama's cult followers

This is in response to a opinion piece titled “Problems started long ago” and were passed down to President Obama.
I just wonder if the cult followers of Obama will ever accept responsibility for anything? Obama has been president for four years and was a senator, but his cult followers refuse to blame anything on him.
He has spent more money than all of the other presidents. The unemployment has gotten worse and more people are on food stamps than any other time in the history of the nation. More military personnel have died in the four years of his administration than the eight years of the last president.
The country is more divided then ever because of Obama. He is the one that refuses to compromise with Congress and even makes threats to hold entitlement payments to senior citizens and the disabled to get his way.
The media, which is pro Obama, fuels the fire of trying to destroy any opposition. The writer says Obama’s opposition creates petty mass hysteria to push their views. Really? That is what Obama and his cult followers are doing with trying to take guns away from law-abiding citizens, thinking that will stop the crazies from committing mass murder.
The writer also states the GOP in Congress wants the country to fail, and it will gut the educationaal system. The educational system in America is a disaster and you are not going to fix it by throwing billions more at the problem. If anyone wants the country to fail, it is the president. That is why he wants more taxes and more regulations.

Of course the writer throws out George Bush’s name as if everything that has happened the last four years is his fault. Was it Bush’s fault that the Obamas’ last vacation a month ago in Hawaii cost taxpayers $20 million?
