....Obama will actually start taking credit for all the crap he does instead of blaming everything on a past president. Whatever happened to taking responsibility for your own actions (you know, LIKE AN ADULT).

What has he unjustly blamed Dubya for?

If we're talkin' about the banks, it's absolutely Dubya's fault (also Phil Gramm, Mark C. Brickell) and people should own up to that rather than trying to retroactively blame the current president for the failures of past ones.

He also inherited the war on terror off Dubya .

And he has done his best to withdraw in an orderly fashion from Afghanistan and Iraq. We at least have a staged withdrawal scheduled for the war now which is a darn sight better than the village idiot Dubya managed to come up with.

Actually, he increased the war in Afghanistan.

The Iraq war was a set date if I recall but still...

Afghanistan is set for a complete withdrawal of alliance forces by 2014 when the democratically elected government is strong enough to deal with the Taliban on its own.
This plan had been in place for almost an entire year now.

Yes, that he literally inherited from his predecessor. Basically, staying longer would have been a breach in our agreements with the Iraqis.

Key note, it was a year ago.

Prior to that he did send an extra 30,000 troops to Afghanistan.

Yes, but people need to also acknowledge that Obama is not alone up there. He's a president, not an autocrat, there are other people who come up with these policies who deserve equal blame

And I wonder when people will stop just blaming Obama for every single god damn thing that's wrong with the world.

Face it... the majority of these problems we have today started long before Obama even took office, some of them even before Bush (not to mention the shitstorm of an economy, no, the entire state of the US, that Bush left him with). To blame Obama and ONLY Obama is just straight-up retarded.
