President Obama and the Democrats are up to their old MO. If the country is in trouble, blame the Republicans.

When President George W. Bush was in office, the Democrats controlled the House and the Senate and Barack Obama was the U.S. senator from Chicago.

The Dems spent six years trying to get rid of Bush and in that time the country was going downhill on a fast sled.

Sen. Obama voted "present" on some bills so as to not have anything with his vote on it that would come back to bite him.

The Dems are a bunch of snails. They believe behind a trial of slime.
Now they are slipping on their own wake and the cry goes out, "It's the Republicans' fault."
