President Obama doesn’t believe in taking personal responsibility for the horrible condition of the American economy. He constantly blames external factors and everyone but himself for the country’s economic mess. His excuses are many and varied and absolve him of any blame for the parlous economic state America and Americans are in.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner has compiled a list of the top 13 excuses that Obama has used to explain away the the economic catastrophe which has occurred on his watch. These include economic “headwinds”, ATM usage, unmanned airport ticket kiosks, speculators, the Arab spring, the Japanese tsunami, European economic problems and the ever reliable George Bush. They are laughable, pathetic, false and very, very sad.
Its true that Obama doesn’t take personal responsibility for America’s economy, or for anything else that reflects poorly on his performance since being elected for that matter. On the other hand, he is quick to take credit for the very few positive things that have taken place, even if it was unwarranted and even if it jeopardized national security and the lives of American military personnel such as when he released operational details of Osama bin Laden’s death and the foiling of the most recent underwear bomb plot.
You can’t have it both ways Barack. If you’re responsible for the good things, you’re responsible for the bad things too, no matter how hard you try to mislead Americans and convince them otherwise.
To paraphrase Harry Truman ‘The buck really does stop with you’.
Americans take heed and don’t let him fool you. It really is his fault and it really isn’t going to get any better. Look at him and look at his track record and you’ll know its so.
If you think things are bad now, wait and see what happens if you elect him to a second term.
You ain’t seen nothing yet, as the saying goes.
