Obama: ‘I Bear Responsibility For Everything’ … ‘to Some Degree’

Posted by on Sep 23, 2012 at 7:52 pm

He’s responsible for everything, except for all the stuff he isn’t responsible for. Like all his failures.

President Barack Obama discussed his frustration with gridlock in Washington, saying his “biggest disappointment” in his nearly four years in office has been the failure to oversee change in the nation’s political climate.

“My biggest disappointment is that we haven’t changed the tone in Washington as much as I would have liked,” Obama said in a CBS News interview that aired Sunday.

Gee, maybe you shouldn’t have been such a condescending, arrogant asshole.

Asked if he bears any blame for the stalemate, Obama said the buck stops at his desk.

“I think that, you know, as president I bear responsibility for everything, to some degree,” he said on CBS’ “60 Minutes.”

Throughout the presidential campaign, Mitt Romney’s campaign and Obama’s critics have dogged the president for failing to get certain legislation passed in recent years, while Team Obama responds by faulting congressional Republicans for not compromising.

    Just as when everyone is made responsible for something, no one is actually responsible for it; so as Obama claims responsibility for everything, Obama is absolving himself of responsibility for anything.
