Obama Can’t Blame Bush Any More, But That’s Okay: It’s ‘Soft’ AMERICAN PEOPLE’S Fault Now

Who’s to blame for our economy?  Why don’t we ask the Demagogue-in-Chief?

Still making excuses: Obama blames economic misery on Americans getting ‘a little soft
‘President claims U.S. had lost its ‘competitive edge’

Barrack Obama claims the U.S. had ‘gotten a little soft’ in the last couple decades and needs to ‘get back on track’.

The president was talking about the state of the economy during an interview with a local TV station from Orlando, Florida, when he made the comments.

He told WESH-TV’s Jim Payne: ‘The way I think about it is, this is a great, great country that had gotten a little soft and we didn’t have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades.

‘We need to get back on track.’

Mr. Obama has faced heavy criticism for his handling of the economy, and the current unemployment rate  of 9.1 per cent is threatening his re-election bid.

He acknowledged that with the current economic climate it is a particularly ‘challenging’ time for young people.

He said: ‘Even before the financial crisis hit, one of the reasons that I ran for president was that wages – incomes had flat-lined at the same time that costs were going up.

‘I think people felt that opportunities were becoming more constricted for the next generation.’

‘And that’s why making sure that we’re revamping our education system, making sure we’ve got world class infrastructure, investing in basic science, research and technology, making sure that we are moving manufacturing to the US, and that we are being tough with our trading partners, making sure that they’re not taking advantage of us.

Americans are too soft.

I kind of view that in terms of a parent who says his kid is fat, and we’re supposed to forget the fact that it was that damned parent who kept stuffing the kid’s face with high-calorie foods.

Let’s see.  I don’t need to get a job; I can stay on unemployment for a hundred weeks, two hundred weeks, hell, for life.  I don’t have to worry one iota, because Obama is going to attack “the rich” and spread their wealth around (“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need“) so I can sit on my fat, lazy ass as long as I keep voting for Democrats. 

But it’s my fault I’m soft?  Why isn’t my “daddy” to blame who shoved all this fat PORK down my throat?

Truman had that now famous slogan on his desk: “The buck stops here.”  Obama did a little editing on his sign: “The buck stops anywhere but here.”

All I can say is that I don’t particularly need a week, scrawny, dumbo-eared pathetic whiner who frankly isn’t man enough to accept responsibility for anything calling me or my fellow Americans “soft.”

And if I AM soft, then please stop stuffing your fatty, sugary, syrupy STIMULUS boondoggles down my throat, okay?
