It's The Obama, Stupid
Much is being made of Financial Times's Edward Luce's article that lays the blame for Obama's floundering first year in office on his advisory staff, namely David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, Robert Gibbs, and Rahm Emanuel, who are geared towards campaigning but not governing.
The Four Horsemen Of The Obamacalypse
One commenter on Lucianne.com cheekily re-titled them as the Four Corpsemen Of The Obamacalypse.
Like the humor, but I differ with Luce's premise. I think the blame lies with Obama. If he can't tell the difference between bad and good advice, then ultimately, it's his fault when policies fail.
I guess the buck stops everywhere but BO's desk.
