Obama's Biggest Lie

As a continuation of the review of last night's presser, I wanted to add the following: Obama's biggest lie from last night; a lie unchallenged by the willing participants in the media.

While Obama spent very little time talking about the economy, he did make a point to say that he "inherited" huge deficits from the Bush administration. He wants to perpetuate this myth because he knows that the national debt and the deficits are going to grow beyond where he has taken them in his first 100 days.  He's already tripled the deficits the government was running under Bush.

Obama isn't an idiot.  He knows that the deficit spending and the huge government debt will have a detrimental effect on the economy. He's blasted Bush for this very thing. He also knows that his economic policies will grow the annual federal deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars over what it was when he took office. Furthermore, he knows that if he keeps repeating the lie that it's all Bush's fault often enough, the media will not question that point and will continue to record that the federal deficits, which may top several trillion dollars a year before he leaves office, were all Bush's fault.

After a while people are going to start holding Obama accountable.

Yes, we've heard over and over how YOU inherited it but when are YOU going to tell us what YOU are going to do about it?

When is he going to explain to this country how his increasing the deficit is helping? And I'm not talking about that lame b.s. about preventitive care helping out in the long run.

His blase comments about not wanting to be blamed for things that happen when he was three months old bore me. I wish he was not our President. I cannot wait for there to be a shift in Congressional leadership.
