English Synonyms and Antonyms0.0 / 0 votes
Whatever mars the beauty or completeness of an object is a blemish, whether original, as squinting eyes, or the result of accident or disease, etc., as the pits of smallpox. A blemish is superficial; a flaw or taint is in structure or substance. In the moral sense, we speak of a blot or stain upon reputation; a flaw or taint in character. A defect is the want or lack of something; fault, primarily a failing, is something that fails of an apparent intent or disappoints a natural expectation; thus a sudden dislocation or displacement of geological strata is called a fault. Figuratively, a blemish comes from one's own ill-doing; a brand or stigma is inflicted by others; as, the brand of infamy.
blemish, blot, blur, brand, crack, daub, defacement, defect, deformity, dent, disfigurement, disgrace, dishonor, flaw, imperfection, injury, reproach, smirch, soil, speck, spot, stain, stigma, taint, tarnish

I fault Hillary Clinton. I fault President Obama. But I also fault the neoconservatives within my party like Marco Rubio who have been eager for war in Libya, in Syria, in Iraq, and they want a no-fly zone in an airspace where Russia is already flying, it's a foolhardy notion, and people really -- this is the kind of stepping it up to a debate over who would best be commander in chief that we really need in our country.
I think that one is the one where we were most out on front, we were doing a really good job, but what happened with the Russia hoax, it destroyed us, this is not Trump's fault or Republicans' fault, it is the left's fault for derailing the whole country and taking our focus off of what we should have been focusing on, which is this China problem.
If someone betrays you once, it's their fault; if they betray you twice, it's your fault.
If the future generation has a difficult life, if they engage in war or commit crime, it's not their fault, it's our fault because we fail to educate them. So responsibility resides on me, on us, to educate them in proper ways.
His only fault is that he has no fault.
