Obama's Recession

I noticed that, according to the administration, the economy is still Bush's fault.

Everything in the world that happens that's bad is directly linked to Bush and everything that happens that's good is directly linked to Obama and his Cairo speech. Funny how that works.

I wonder when this will be Obama's recession. A few months back Dick Morris pointed out that the current downturn began about two and a half months before the November election and about four months before the Obama inauguration. His prediction was that at the six month mark (around July 20) Obama will have had the reigns fifty percent longer than Bush during the actual recession. He said that this is the point that the American voters will hold Obama accountable.

I'm not sure if that's true. Polls are certainly indicating he could be right. Of course, Obama has the media on his side, and they will continue to blame Bush for anything bad until the next time a Republican gets into the White House, even if that takes fifty years.

What I find interesting is the excuses.

When Obama took office, the economy was his top priority. Ahead of Iraq. Ahead of Gitmo. Ahead of the gay agenda. Ahead of finding a new church. It's really what he was elected to do.

How many times was there references to the worst economy since the depression?

How often did we hear about being on the edge of an economic collapse?

Now we hear about how they underestimated how bad the economy really was. O really? Whose job was it to make those estimates? Perhaps Administration officials were too busy refiguring their tax forms to focus on the job.

Still, the blame game continues, and now we are getting Cap Prosperity and Trade it for Poverty, ObamaCare and other big spending packages. We are also hearing rumblings about a Generational Theft Act part II.

I don't know about you, but I suspect when the polls show that the American voters are largely holding Obama responsible and not buying the baloney, maybe he'll get serious about fixing problems. Of course, with his world view and his lack of knowledge and experience, he probably genuinely things the Theft Act should have worked. In that case, we'll just get more of the same.

I'm waiting for him to get credit for settling things in Iraq

Chuck's right..he will definitely say it was ALL HIM.
Except they're already falling apart sooner than we expected, more's the pity.
We're also hearing rumblings of a constitutional change to allow THE ONE a third term. I'm thinking he won't make a second.
