The righties aid that 8 months into Bush's term, Clinton owned 9/11. In other words, Bush was not responsible for what happened during his term. At what point is Obama responsible? If there's an attack on American soil by September 11, 2009, is it Bush's fault? My view is that Obama is responsible for what transpires after 30 days in office. There is no excuse for him to be fully up and running in 30 days. He's a liberal Democrat, so perhaps I hold him to a higher standard than that to which conservatives held Bush.
