  1. I have a relative who blames Obama for everything wrong in the world, and for everything right, he takes credit.

    The basic rationale is that Obama is a dirty, low-down, lying, incompetent jerk, and he himself, has superior intelligence, vision, and judgement.

    I think a) is the better answer.

  2. Possibly these articles might help.
