You know, if this idiot spent as much time trying to pull the country out of the recession as he did attacking George W. Bush, the Democrats wouldn’t have to worry about the November elections. As it stands, they are in deep trouble. I wonder why.
President Barack Obama attacked the economic policies of his Republican predecessor George W. Bush in Bush’s home state on Monday as evidence of the way Republicans would operate if given power in Nov. 2 U.S. congressional elections.
At a fund-raising event for Democrats in Dallas, where Bush now lives, Obama said the former president’s “disastrous” policies had driven the U.S. economy into the ground and turned budget surpluses into deficits. Obama defended his repeated references to Bush’s policies, saying they were necessary to remind Americans of the weak economy he inherited from Bush in January 2009.
“The policies that crashed the economy, that undercut the middle class, that mortgaged our future, do we really want to go back to that, or do we keep moving our country forward?” Obama said at another fund-raising event in Austin, referring to Bush’s eight years as president.
Has this man ever taken responsibility for anything?
Never mind that Obama’s economic policies have not exactly helped the recession. Never mind that the Democrats had control of both Houses since 2006. This terrible economy is all George W. Bush’s fault. Yeah, keep screwing that chicken, Barry.
