Obama can't even hold the black vote. They are even pissed off at him. There were a lot of black people in construction related fields that lost their jobs too. And they know who caused it. They know why it happened and who is responsible for the mortgage meltdown.

WOW, he's to blame even though he took office 6 months after it happened. Does that mean I can blame Ronald Reagan for the Great depression, or G.W. Bush for the holocaust? Of course not, that would be ridiculous.

No matter how many times you repeat a lie, it's still a lie.

a true leader steps up to the plate and gets things done and does not look to blame problems on others: i.e., bush, congress, tsunamis, the greedy one percent, global warming, etc. obama made promises when he knew how bad things were. he has not produced. end of story.

Well, hold on now, blame should be placed at the feet of those who caused the problem.
.
If you want to blame Obama for not getting results fast enough, that's one thing, but it's only half the story, though.
.
To say he was the cause of the housing crisis, or credit default swap disaster, that's a lie.
.
It's also disingenuous to say that it's all his fault, he can only do what congress allows him to do. He can only accept half the blame for the slow recovery, the other half lays squarely at the feet of the house republicans that have blocked any attempt for him to move the economy forward. Their goal is not to restore America, their goal is to make Obama a one term president. They have no interest in the USA, their interest is in power.

There are plenty of reason to dislike Obama without being disingenuous.

like i said, true leaders don't need excuses. they make things happen. obama had both the house and senate for two years. the dems had house and senate majorities for bush's last two years. where are the results?

Also, the economy collapsed under his watch, too... no excuses.

If you apply tainted logic, you have to apply it evenly, not just when it suits your purpose.
