"We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again," Obama told a crowd in Decorah, Iowa. "But over the last six months we've had a run of bad luck."What the...?! A run of bad luck?!! Oh yeah, Obama had it all going his way, and then, whoopsie, things went a little caca. But he doesn't cite the things that you or I or any reasonable thinking person would ascribe as impactful on the American economy. Nope, it was that darn tsunami in Japan, some trouble in the Middle East and then that crazy European debt crisis. We'd just be going like gang busters if it weren't for the hand of fate. Sheesh.
"All those things have been headwinds for our economy," Obama said. "Now, those are things that we can't completely control. The question is, how do we manage these challenging times and do the right things when it comes to those things that we can control?"Oh, well simple. Step one would be get your god damn boot off our necks. Stop threatening to raise taxes, quit spending everything in sight, stop bullying businesses like BP and Boeing, and quit being such a jerk.
"The problem," Obama continued, "is that we've got the kind of partisan brinksmanship that is willing to put party ahead of country, that is more interested in seeing their political opponents lose than seeing the country win. Nowhere was that more evident than in this recent debt ceiling debacle."Yeah, and the first name on the list of offenders is Barack Hussein Obama. Good grief, can this huckster actually believe he can get away with this nonsense? It's hard to imagine, but he keeps saying it.
This is a little closer look at what he's really trying to drive over the country:
With a hat tip to Jill over at Pundit and Pundette.
