Earlier this month President Barack Obama attended a fund-raiser at Sarah Jessica Parker‘s house where he spoke to a group of supporters. Obama cautioned that Gov. Mitt Romney and Republicans will mostly blame him and his administration for the current economy and say it’s “the other guy’s fault.”
“It’s an elegant message. It happens to be wrong, but it’s crisp. You can fit it on a bumper sticker,” Obama noting that the GOP will spend “$500 million” on ads. In Ohio Obama stated “The other side will spend over a billion dollars on ads that tell you the economy is bad, that it is my fault. That’s what the scary voice in the ads will say. That’s what Mr. Romney will say… That may be their plan to win the election, but it is not a plan to create jobs.”
Now, is it just me or does that sound familiar and a lot like Obama’s 2008 Presidential campaign? It sounds exactly like Obama’s 2008 campaign where he was keen to accuse President George W. Bush for the economy. Also, once in office those same remarks, and thoughts seem to be his battle cry where he blames President George W. Bush 3 1/2 years later for the economy he was handed.
Whenever any Conservative or GOP member accuses Obama of his failed record he quickly mentions it only failed because of the economy he was handed from George W. Bush. At what point is President Obama going to stand up and take ownership of his failed record, and policies that have not brought our economy back, or even improved it as he promised?
President Obama thinks he is the people’s choice, the one to answer all of their prayers, and the President who is closes to the people, and understands them better than anyone. He is also quick to point out that because of Mitt Romney’s wealth and success that he is disconnected from the average American, and does not understand them, and cannot relate to them. Those comments, and thoughts just show his ignorance, and feeling that most of the American people are unintelligent and uneducated. His fundraiser put on by Sarah Jessica Parker which he attended cost his supporters $40,000 to attend. I don’t know about you but what average American has $40,000 to give to a fundraiser event? Most Americans that President Obama says he can relate to don’t even make $40,000 a year, let alone able to drop $40,000 in one night for a chance to meet Obama.
Later that evening the President and Michelle Obama attended another fundraiser in New York at Manhattan’s Plaza Hotel. Some 250 guests paid $10,000 each and heard that the first lady said “qualifies as date night in the Obama household.” Man, If getting 250 people to give you $10,000 each was a date night, then I would want to have a date night every night. Because after all, when you’re as connected as they are to the average American Joe, it’s easy to see why anyone would scrounge, save, beg, and borrow to get $10,000 to give to the Obama’s.
So Yes, President Barack Obama will always blame George W. Bush for our current economy that he has been in control of for the past 3 1/2 years; but here is one question… What will happen if he is re-elected for another term as President? Will he still blame Bush for the economy he was handed, or will he keep the same tactic and blame our current economy on the last four years, to which of course was not his fault?
GOP be warned, how dare you ever try to accuse dearest President Barack Obama on the state of our current economy. Obama has the market cornered when it comes to not admitting fault, and saying “it’s the other guy’s fault.”
