The Republicans have been making a lot of charges about how the Obama administration is responsible for many bad things.    But when you look deeper, there's much more to the explanation than Repugs would have us believe.

Record poverty:     Due to the economic crash caused by Republican policies

National debt:    Twice as much of it was spent by the Republicans as by the Democrats.

Worst recovery:    Largely due to Republican obstructionism

Obamacare:      Somehow providing more and better access to healthcare for much larger numbers of citizens is "irresponsible"??

Most divisive president:    Republicans pledged to ruin him on inauguration day and do anything they could to cause programs like Obamacare to fail.

Household income down:    Due to the economic crash and Republican obstructionism

Health premiums up:    They went up faster under Bush

Intel leaks:    Nothing new

Fast and Furious:    No convictions, no indictments

IRS:    No convictions, no indictments

Benghazi:    No convictions, no indictments
