Unlike Bush Obama is too smart to not be responsible for his own actions

In some ways George Bush lucked out when the media and the left started portraying him as an ignoramus. It meant that he could get away with the most awful of political crimes and the liberal critics had to defer blame away from him, because to accept that he was responsible would go against their belief he was too stupid to pull off such tyranny and so they found others to blame, mostly Dick Cheney. Obama does not have that luxury, nobody accuses him of being too dumb to possibly be responsible for the actions of his administration. Instead he hides behind race, managing to paint his critics as racially motivated even when there is no evidence of such. I wonder if he can continue to pull that off as his crimes are becoming so numerous that even his allies on the left are beginning to turn against him for his attacks on civil liberties, his spying, etc.

Don't agree that Bush was too dumb. Don't agree that Obama is too smart. That being said, I impatiently waiting for the world (everyone other than me) to come to the awareness that Obama Can't Make A Decision. Remember all the "Present" votes in Illinois and in U.S. Senate? Remember the months he took to decide about a Surge in Afghanistan? He ended up saying I agree to do a Surge but I won't give you as many troops as you want to do the Surge. That's a half decision. Now we have Syria's go then don't go, do then don't do, etc. There are other examples but you get my drift.
