Wow, is this a first? President Barack Obama has finally claimed to take “full responsibility” during an April 23rd news conference for something. It is in regards to a disastrous U.S. drone strike that killed two hostages being held by Al Qaeda in January. Dr. Warren Weinstein and Giovanni Lo Porto had been contained since 2011 and 2012, respectively, and their hopes of being saved came to a horrendous ending.
However, I was surprised when Obama took responsibility. It was quite surprising when you include a list of all the things he has blamed on others, as shown below.
3) ATM Machines
5) Founding Fathers
6) George Bush
7) Fox News
8) Rush Limbaugh
And this list is just a short sample of everything he blames. If Obama wants to be more consistent, he should also take some responsibility for the disastrous Benghazi scandal, which he still thinks is some conservative conspiracy or witch hunt. Perhaps he can also take responsibility for the horrendous economy, open borders, and absurd foreign policy he has created.
So it comes as a surprise. It has not been that often the president has uttered the words “I take full responsibility” during his 6 ½ year reign.
