There was a lot of talk at last week’s Democrat National Convention of the hardships and challenges left behind by the Premier Dumbya regime that Barack Obama had to deal with when he became President.
I know what you’re thinking.
I too am shocked that the Democrats, normally loathe to blame George Bush for any problem, would turn to pinning Obama’s problems on the previous administration.
Leave it to the great Opus_6 at the American Perspective blog to give us some…ummm…perspective on the President’s blame games.
Consider just one way that our Fiscal Pyromaniac-in-Chief has poured napalm all over the Great Recession. ObamaCare hangs over the US economy like a death shroud. In the coming years, insane taxes hikes and massive new regulatory structures promise to choke any possible recovery in the womb.
George Bush didn’t demand that Obama employ the hated individual mandate in his socialized medicine plans. George Bush didn’t force Obama to give Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi carte blanche when it came to writing a nationalized health care scheme. George Bush didn’t make Obama sign a 2000 page abomination that will put a permanent wet blanket on the American economy. St. Bambi did all that on his own.
Furthermore, the Democrats and the dinosaur media (sorry, I repeated myself) spent the Younger Bush years portraying G-Dub as a drooling incompetent, incapable of tying his shoes, much less running an economy. Then President Pitching Wedge and his supporters have the brass to act as if Obama has been hopelessly constrained by George Bush’s clever machinations.
Bear in mind: This doesn’t even get into other economy killing measures that Obama has a raging Marx-boner for, like Cap-n-Trade, his hatred of fossil fuels, his failed stimulus spending or pretty much his entire domestic agenda. We’re just talking about ObamaCare.
SORTA RELATED: Yes, Obama had it tough when he first started out. Everybody acknowledges this. At the same time, he’s the one who ran for the job. Obama was the one who pined to be President, even with a paper-thin resume, no real-world executive experience and a noted Stalinist dickbag domestic terrorist for a political mentor.
Obama knew the economy was going to be in shambles when he took over. He understood the housing market collapse, the derivatives crunch and everything else that went into the recession. And yet, here we are, four years later and the guy is still pissing his pants about how tough he had it in 2009 and how hard it is for him now.
So America is supposed to wring our collective hands and give Obama the Victim-in-Chief a do-over because he’s such a glorious human being. He and his sycophants want the US electorate to treat St. Barry of the Holy Participant Ribbon like a child who had no idea what he was getting into when he ran for
fifth grade sophomore class president. Citizens, ignore Obambi’s failures; he’s a nice guy and a great dad and devoted husband and doggone it, he cares.
Except when he doesn’t.
