    Not yours. Not mine. Obama's. He is the chief executive and the buck stops with him.

    The waffling over chained CPI changes stops with him, the failure to go after the banksters stops with him, the failure to make  HARP work stops with him, the GSA excesses at their conventions stops with him. The failure to make peace with the goopbaggers? that's all on him. We didn't elect him, or contribute to his campaigns, or hit the streets to find out he hasn't been paying attention to the fundamentals of his job.

    There's no "us" or "our" unless you are a member of his cabinet. In that case, you do bear some responsibility. Personally, there's nothing I could have done to make the DOJ go after the banksters. That's between Obama and Holder.

        Lurked and read before that.

        Who is watching the store? Who is watching the watchers?

        This is rank incompetence. Obama is, by definition, responsible for the actions of the agencies.
