I only caught a few minutes of the President’s press conference this afternoon but one thing I did hear that I found interesting is this:
Now, the good news is, over the past 3 1/2 years, our businesses have created 7 1/2 million new jobs. Our housing market is healing; we’ve cut the deficit in half. Since I took office, the deficit is coming down faster than any time in the last 50 years.
The irony is thick. The whole reason the deficit is coming down so fast is due to House Republicans forcing the administration to accept cuts.
Obama is taking credit for republicans doing exactly what they’re doing now.
