How many times do we have to hear The Blessed Leader report to the fainting masses that the financial crisis we find ourselves in was given to him by the previous administration? I have been listening, and so far as I can tell, it’s every time he’s in front of a camera. Now, I get it. He wants to separate his time; Pre – Blessed Leader and then, well, you know, just Blessed Leader.
The problem that I have with this is not so much that he says it, after all, they have all said it. Dubya said it when he took over the recession from Bubba. Bubba from 41 and Reagan from the Peanut Vendor. They all say it.
However, in this case, Obama has it wrong. You see, another disadvantage of being a Senator turned President is that you can actually be called on your record. I mean, Obama was part of the organization that CREATED the mess that his current President self inherited.
And as it concerns Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, he was warned and woo’d, to the tune of ranking #3 on the Active Leader Board. Does that register? Senator Obama, he of 4 short years, ranked 3rd on the currently serving members of the Senate. John Kerry, who has been serving since forever, has only taken 6 large more than Obama.
And he has the stone to say that he inherited this. He created it.
