I find it rather amusing when far left liberals such as Thomas Schaller ("GOP just can't say yes to Obama," Aug. 7) shout from the rooftops that former President George W. Bush is responsible for the horrendous deficit and economy that poor President Barack Obama inherited. Yet these dishonest liberals fail to mention that the Democrats were in charge of the House and the Senate during the last two years of Mr. Bush's presidency. Since the president neither makes our laws nor control our finances (Congress does), why aren't the Democrats to blame for the mess this country is in right now? Oh, that's right! It wouldn't fit the agenda of Mr. Obama and his liberal cohorts in smearing the GOP whenever possible!
