One of the most important qualities of a leader is responsibility and accountability–as they typically say, “the buck stops here.”

So why do we have so much of this:

5. “Blames Democrats for Midterm Losses


6. “Shifting Blame for Bergdahl Trade to [former Defense Secretary] Hagel


7. Blames “Detaining Terrorists at GITMO Helps ISIS [recruit terrorists]

10. “Blaming [former HHS Secretary] Sebelius” for botched Obamacare rollout


11. “Blames ‘bad apple’ insurers for cancelled [Obamacare] coverage

12. “Blames his Low Approval Numbers on Racism


13. “Blames China…for not playing fair [as competitors]


14. “[Russian President] Putin largely to blame for Syrian crisis” 


15. “Blame Middle East Turmoil on [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu


16. “Blames Christians from Holding Back America from Doing ‘Big Things


17. “Blames Founding Fathers’ ‘structural’ design of Congress for gridlock


18. “Blames the rich–big banks, big oil, big hedge funds…[and] recklessness of Wall Street” for economic crisis


19. “Blames [former President] Bush for Economy While Standing Next To Him
