36. But then he would be "blaming" somebody (other than himself)

and the Republicans have been dumping on him for THAT too- even though it's 100% true. Bush left him a huge mess and has had to try to fix it despite the Republican pit bulls biting (and hanging onto) his legs for the past 4 years. He's gotten some good things accomplished and he was able to turn the tide of the recession and point us in a better direction but obviously we haven't gotten back to where we need to be. We're still headed in the right direction though. It makes me sick to my stomach to think where we might be now had the Republicans actually been trying to help govern during the past 4 years.

What I also don't like hearing from the Republicans about Obama is his supposed "failure to lead". Now that we know that they planned-from the VERY beginning of his Presidency- to obstruct him to failure, it's pretty hard to argue that if President had just said or done the "right" thing, he would have won over the Republicans and get them to help.
