Why is it when a republican ask's why the government isn't doing something all the left can come up with is "i thought government only messes stuff up". Here is the thing for all you leftist, as conservatives we like "limited Goverment" or "Smaller Goverment", i don't think you can find someone that says there should be NO government at all. Government does serve a purpose and the president should be a leader.
Here is the deal with Obama and this mess. Yes, there wasn't anything he could have done to stop this just like it wasn't Bush's fault. The bottom line though is that he isn't leading during this crisis and should be. His priorities are not where they should be and people are seeing this and getting angry.
