Barack Obama, the Incredible Blaming President … Still Blaming GWB … “If He Knew How Bad The Economy Was, He “Could Have Warned Americans”
The Incredible Blaming President …How about some cheese with that Whine?
Once again Barack Obama’s answer to the economy is, blame Bush and he did not know the full extent of the economic crisis when he took office. Does that mean that Obama would not have promises to keep unemployment below 8% before he spent $787 billion down a rat hole? Mr. President, no one wants to hear what if, they want answers and they want results, you have provided neither.
President Barack Obama said Tuesday he wishes he knew the full extent of the economic crisis when he took office, if only so he could have let Americans know just how tough the coming years would be.
“I think we understood that it was bad, but we didn’t know how bad it was,” Obama said in an interview with KIRO in Seattle. “I think I could have prepared the American people for how bad this was going to be, had we had a sense of that.”
Obama’s comments came as he sat down with a string of local TV reporters on Tuesday morning to sell his proposal to extend the payroll tax cut while highlighting the end of the Iraq war. He also did brief interviews – all under 10 minutes – with WVEC in Norfolk, Va., WEAR in Pensacola, Fla., and KOAA in Colorado Springs, Colo.
As Weasil Zippers states, when it comes to President Barack Obama, the buck stops with George W. Bush. Many have questioned Obama’s lack of leadership as President, this certainly does not stop that debate. However, the problem is not what Obama may have inherited, the problem is that Obama’s policies, agenda and political philosophy have made matters worse.
Imagine a football coach in the 3rd year of his contract and having taken over a team that was 8 and 8 and now finds himself a 5 and 11 and no signs of getting better asking for a raise and a contract extension. Most leaders take on a challenge and relish in the fact of turning bad situations around. They don’t whine and expect everything to be easy and handed to them. However, not when it comes to this President. Obama was never qualified for the office and America is paying a dear price for that fact.
It does not matter how bad things were, what matters is how you fix it. It is obvious and it comes from the horses mouth, Obama is over his head and has no solutions. Four more years of Obama would be the equivalent of taking the car in the ditch and driving it off the cliff … if we are not already there. There is a reason why 75% of Americans think the country is headed in the wrong direction and 54% believe that Obama does not deserve reelection.
EXIT QUESTION: If America knew how bad Barack Obama would be as President could we have been warned as well?
