Everyone is so ticked off with Obama. Everyone should have been mad sooner...and yes Obama is responsible for his Administrations... "You didn't get mad ....when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President. ...when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq. ...when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us. .... when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war. ....when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined. ...when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq. ... when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country. ... when they didn't catch Bin Laden. ... when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits. ....when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed. .... when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown. .... when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the 1%, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks. .... with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades. .... when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance. .... when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values" - author unknown

The republicans have a lot to account for, for which they have not come clean, however, many of the things you cite are very partisan and erroneous points.

Democrats Retreat on Civil Liberties in 2012 Platform "In 2008, Democrats were eager to draw a contrast with what they then portrayed as Republican excesses in the fight against Al Qaeda. Since then, the Obama administration has in many cases continued the national security policies of its predecessor—and the Democratic Party's 2012 platform highlights this reversal, abandoning much of the substance and all of the bombast of the 2008 platform. Here are a few places where the differences are most glaring:" * Indefinite Detention * Warrantless Surveillance/PATRIOT Act * Gitmo * Racial Profiling in Fighting Terrorism * Torture http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2012/09/democrats-retreat-civil-liberties-2012-platform
