Mail Bag

Proposed Title: When will Obama take responsibility for deficits, unemployment?

A 1953 Soviet joke from Moscow states that Joseph Stalin calls Nikita Khruschev, "Niki, I am dying. I have just three envelopes to leave you. Open them one at a time when you get into trouble."

The first crisis came. Khruschev opened the first envelope: "Blame everything on me." Months later, another crisis, so he opened envelope 2: "Blame everything on me again." Then a really big crisis came along and after opening it, the third envelope read: "Prepare three envelopes."

In just nine months, Obama has blamed insurance companies, tea party attendees, Rush Limbaugh, George W. Bush, Republicans, Blue Dog Democrats, Glenn Beck, Fox News, and others. He applied for the job to fix things. Instead he continues to search for more envelopes. Hopefully, he will locate that third envelope soon.
