    Here's the email I received recently...
    Here's an opinion piece by Chuck Green who writes "Greener Pastures" for the Denver Post Aurora Sentinel...one of the more liberal papers in the country. Additionally, Mr. Green is a lifelong Democrat...so this is rather a stunning piece...

    Obama is victim of Bush's failed promises !

    Barack Obama is setting a record-setting number of records during his first term in office:

    Largest budget ever. Largest deficit ever. Largest number of broken promises ever.

    Most self-serving speeches ever. Largest number of agenda-setting failures ever. Fastest dive in popularity ever!
    Wow ! Talk about change.

    Just one year ago, fresh from his inauguration celebrations, President Obama was flying high. After one of the nation's most inspiring political campaigns, the election of America 's first black president had captured the hopes and dreams of millions. To his devout followers, it was inconceivable that a year later his administration would be gripped in self-imposed crisis.

    Of course, they don't see it as self-imposed. It's all George Bush's fault !

    George Bush, who doesn't have a vote in congress and who no longer occupies The White House, is to blame for it all.

    He broke Obama's promise, to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.

    He broke Obama's promise, to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.

    He broke Obama's promise, to end earmarks.

    He broke Obama's promise, to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.

    He broke Obama's promise, to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.

    He broke Obama's promise, to make peace with direct, no precondition talks with America's most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.

    He broke Obama's promise, to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.

    He broke Obama's promise, to end no-compete contracts with the government.

    He broke Obama's promise, to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.

    He broke Obama's promise, for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.

    He broke Obama's promise, to have chosen a home church to attend Sundayservices with his family by Easter of last year.

    Yes, it's all George Bush's fault ! President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the never-ending failed Bush administration.

    If only George Bush wasn't still in charge, all of President Obama's problems would be solved. His promises would have been kept, the economy would be back on track, Iran would have stopped its work on developing a nuclear bomb and would be negotiating a peace treaty with Israel . North Korea would have ended its tyrannical regime, and integrity would have been restored to the federal government.

    Oh, and did I mention what it would be like, if the Democrats, under the leadershipof Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, didn't have the heavy yoke of George Bush around their necks? There would be no ear marks, no closed-door drafting of bills, no increase in deficit spending, no special-interest influence (unions), no vote buying ( Nebraska , Louisiana ).

    If only George Bush wasn't still in charge, we'd have real change by now.

    All the broken promises, all the failed legislation and delay (health care reform, immigration reform) is not President Obama's fault or the fault of the Democrat-controlled Congress. It's all George Bush's fault !

    Take for example the decision of Eric Holder, the president's attorney general, to hold terrorists' trials in New York City . Or his decision to try the Christmas Day underpants bomber as a civilian.

    Two disastrous decisions.

    Certainly those were bad judgments based on poor advice from George Bush !
    Need more proof?

    You might recall that when Scott Brown won the election to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts , capturing "The Ted Kennedy Seat", President Obama said, Brown's victory was the result of the same voter anger that propelled Obama into office in 2008. People were still angry about George Bush and the policies of the past 10 years. And they wanted change.Yes, according to the president, the voter rebellion in Massachusetts , was George Bush's fault.

    Therefore, in retaliation, they elected a Republican to the Ted Kennedy seat, ending a half-century of domination by Democrats. It is all George Bush's fault !

    Will the failed administration of George Bush ever end, and the time for hope and change ever arrive ???

    Will President Obama ever accept responsibility for something / anything?

    It is just one of many examples of how technology has eliminated jobs that used to exist just a few short years ago. Even PC Magazine has stopped printing magazine - you can now only subscribe online. Jobs were lost when the presses stopped.

    Instead of using the information for some mindless political jousting, we should be using it to address the issue of unemployment. Both service companies and manufacturers view reduced labor expenses as a means of increasing competitiveness and profits. That doesn't mean just reducing wages, it also means reducing labor forces.

    So the phenomena of decreased jobs from increased employment of technology is both real and increasing exponentially. Ignoring that fact will have the same results as one who ignores the fact of gravity as they lean over a rail.

    Claiming Obama is "blaming" the internet for job losses is like a patient claiming his doctor blames McDonalds for the patient's obesity. What the doctor said was a mere observation: "you are fat because you eat six meals a day at McDonalds." What Obama said was likewise a mere observation.

    It is difficult to have a rationale discussion of issues and potential solutions when so many are willing to engage in self-imposed deafness.
    No god, you are absolutely right on target with your epiphany. We need to spend more tax dollars to set up manufacturing facilities of “TSA Body Scanners” then maybe after comments as such, will show what part of your body the head is stuck.

    Yeah! What he said! Well said Nogods

    Disagreeing with someone just because you don't like them makes no sense and proves one is not willing to engage in intellegent argument to prove ones point. Discourse is one of the basic tenants of a civilized society. Being able to argue beyond the standing of your opponent is the true measure of an informed, intellegent debator.

    Unfortunately PresBo's argument is factual although I think this was another effort of Fox to marginalize everything PresBo says or does. Some times is seems Fox is as far to the right as MSNBC is to the left.

    With the advent of technology, manual labor goes to the wayside and less man power is needed to accomplish any given task. The only way that our population will get to full employment is if they stop fighting technological advances, educate themselves and get one step ahead of the tech curve. Forgive me! I digress!
