Poor Gary Ziolkowski is apoplectic that President Barack Obama doesn't take the blame for the proliferation of scandals, crises and "debacles" manufactured by Republicans and their pawns at Fox News.

Sorry, but I don't remember him being so outraged at the actual debacles created by the last Republican president — unfunded wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, tortured prisoners, tax breaks for corporations and the ultra-rich, an economy on the brink of depression and more.

As for all those terrible Democratic presidents he despises, it's a good thing we've had them. Every one of them has had to clean up the economic disaster created by his Republican predecessor.
