Washington (CNN) - "I ultimately take responsibility for solving this crisis," Obama said about the continuing oil spill in the Gulf. "I'm the president, and the buck stops with me."
Bush did the same thing,but only with the Peso,hahaha
You never heard Bush sat that...
Only took 40 days...
Maybe you could offer Sleeztak the job of clean up?
Remember Shrub having a contest with Rove for 8 years to see who could read the most books?
Other than starting 2 wars, cutting taxes for the wealhy, repeating "war on terror" and "911" over and over - that's all Shrub did.
This President (Barack Hussein Obama) is getting lots of stuff done that should have been done during the last admin. AND he's doing what he's supposed to do during his first term AT THE SAME TIME.
I'm very proud of him.
This was in no way his fault, and I admire him for taking the responsibility to fix it. If that isn't CHANGE, I don't know what is! I'm sure all the haters will hop on this too..........
Mr. President, these words are about 35 days late, and actions have spoken still louder.
what a joke... reminds me of bushes statements...
He refused to take responsibility until such time as he heard that BP was 70 percent sure they could stop the leak. Teflon nobamba and blame everything on everyone else is his style of leadership. In other words he could not lead people out of a burning building. Pathetic excuse for President.
Yes sir. Thank you. A President who takes responsibility.
You will NEVER see a Republican take responsibility. For anything except of course annidea that wasn't their's to begin with.
Too bad the bucks haven't stopped with Obama. He has spent more than all the other presidents combined. If only we could stop him for spilling red ink...
If "the buck stops with me", then the congress should go to impeachment proceedings as soon as possible. Just imagine how much damages the mass oil spill have been done to the 5 states' (TX, LA, MS, AL and FL) enocomy, food and services and tourism industries. He should say "IT IS BUSH'S FAULTS" as he said during his press conference.
OK Great, the buck stops with him. What exactly is a guy at that level going to do? He criticizes BP and their partners for pointing fingers regarding blaming each other, but this is the pot calling the kettle black. Obama is the FINGER POINTER IN CHIEF. It's either Bush's fault or those GREEDY corporations (that BTW give us all jobs, something Obama never has had.)
While admire President Obama for his honesty and taking responsibility for the spill and clean up, it is not necessary to the majority of Americans.
We realize you are doing all you can, it is just Fox and Fox Lite(formerly CNN) that have been yammerin' about "Obama's Katrina" right after the Lush and his lemmings started the chant.
Who knew the uneducated blob of DNA would provide "news" to the aforementioned corporations. as they fight over the ratings for the right wing neo-nuts.
Power of Hope is not "Leadership" never was and never will be...!!
I wonder how the Republicans feel about the buck stopping with the President. First they don't want government involved in big business. Then when things go catastrophically wrong they do want government involved in big business. Anyone else dizzy?
B.O CONTINUES to make crossroads and large strides in the oil spill.
Well, THAT was original. Where was his teleprompter when he needed it?
...but the oil keeps running.........
If the "buck" stops with Obama there goes the Gulf plus a lot of our "bucks' !
The buck does stop with you ... too bad you have to take it from both sides.
When things are going well, you are not suppose to put restrictions and regulations on the industry ... you are suppose to leave them alone. You are not suppose to interfere.
When things are going to hell, you are suppose to step in, take responsiblity and solve the problems of that very specific industry.
With this in mind you better bone up on your
brain surgery skills
rocket design skills
autobody repair skills
OB / GYN skills
venture capital skills
pharmacuetical development skills
etc., etc., etc.,
"The Buck Stops Here"
Right next to common sense and integrity!
first time since his election that he hasn't lied to America...verdict "you are fired", go back to community organizing .
Stop talking and do something good.
Believe you me Mr. President, they are NOT going to let you forget it. That the buck stops with you that is, because God knows that in their lttle demented minds you're not THEIR President......Except when they need federal assistance.
I told you to stay out of this. I hope to God you don't live to regret it. But I know they will make sure that you do.
After we get started cleaning up our gulf finally,is there going to be a investigation on Halliburton and Dick Channey's involvement in the spill?
