Not willing to take the credit for his own fuckups, Obama resorts to the “wasn’t me” line.
With his party’s poll numbers flagging and crises testing his own leadership,…Obama said Wednesday that November’s elections will amount to a referendum on whether voters want to go back to the policies of the Bush administration or stick with his vision of change.
In a starkly political speech at Carnegie Mellon University, Obama patted Democrats on the back for supporting his stimulus bill and other policies he said are leading to a recovery — while Republicans “sat on the sidelines and shouted from the bleachers.”
Touting positive signs of an economic recovery, he also tried to rally core Democratic voters ahead of the election by reminding them how angry they were at his predecessor, President George W. Bush – a key factor in what some analysts expect to be a base-turnout election.
“As November approaches, leaders in the other party will campaign furiously on the same economic argument they’ve been making for decades,” Obama said. “We already know where their ideas led us. And now we have a choice as a nation. We can return to the failed economic policies of the past, or we can keep building a stronger future.” (READ: Socialist New World Order)
Analysts described Obama’s lengthy remarks, in which he repeatedly accused Republicans of political maneuvering, as a declaration of the White House’s strategy heading into November.
……Republicans say Obama, at 16 months into his presidency, now owns the economy and that voters should see better results from about $1 trillion committed to recovery programs. House Minority Leader John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, called the speech proof that Obama has “run out of excuses for his broken promises on the economy.”
“The president diminishes the office of the president when he resorts to straw-man arguments that willfully mischaracterize the views of others,” Mr. Boehner said. “All of the president’s talk of post-partisanship, reaching out and finding common ground reminds us that the country deserves better than his hyperpartisan speech today.”
“Sat on the sidelines”? This line of bullshit is coming from a petty, spiteful little Marxist autocrat, who literally locked GOP members of Congress and Senate out of the room while ObamaCare and the current bailouts were being concocted. Furthermore, every piece of destruction he’s signed into law was rammed through the legislature by a majority of Democratic thugs, who allowed neither debate nor public viewing of the totalitarian enactments.
The economy is in the toilet, our national security panders to the enemy, and our world standing is a side-show, but this presidential poseur can do nothing but blame a former president who had absolutely nothing to do with the reign of devastation wrought by the Dems since January 2009.
Keep it up, B. Hussein. You own this train wreck whether you admit it or not. You, the limousine liberals, and gullible minority voters brought this socialist oil slick down on us. Come November, don’t think we won’t remember.
