Take this to the bank. Obama is an expert at hurting the economy.
He’s an idiot. If there is to be an effect, we won’t know about if for at least three months, if not six. He really does assume everyone in the room is a blithering idiot.
One hopes it isn’t just projection, of course.
Obama has hurt... and will hurt the economy!
Nothing can be Obama’s fault, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
I have a fishermans tee shirt with these type of excuses on them, for not catching fish.
Can I say it? I’m pretty sure it’s Bush’s fault.
There, fixed it.
Hussein has hurt the economy.
Guess the Wizards of Washington have finally decided that the Blame Bush meme was getting threadbare, so they had to come up with a new pitch.
....all I’m hearing so far is [crickets].....
The Boyz might find that this one is a tad bit more lame than the last.
You and leftists have hurt the economy Bambam
How on Earth would Mr. Obama know that?
He couldn’t open a tin of sardines.
Lighten up Barry! The economy has been going downhill since you took the reigns of power. “Spreading the wealth around” (Socialism) has failed everywhere it has been tried.
Sounds like the aviation impasse is due to the dim Senate refusing to allow the house amendment to eliminate the insane stupid subsidy to small airports. Once again, the part of the government that does not work is the part dominated by inflexible dims that can’t adapt to the real fiscal environment, but continuing to live in denial. They will not bend, so they will break.
Airlines were collecting fees but not turning them over to the government as a result of the partial shutdown, which could lead to $1 billion in lost revenue, Obama said.
I could swear I heard him say on an Audio that the fees amounted $200 million a week and represent a trillion dollar loss.
And I’m thinking WTF? No way those fees add up to those numbers.
Don’t tell me he is accepting responsibility! After all, he and Reid are the ones who created the crisis!
There is LOTS we can do about oil prices. How come no one bothers to call him on this stuff?
What happened to blaming Bush?
Every time he insults our intelligence, he calls his own into further legitimate question.
He’ll try to blame Tea Party people now. It just cant be his fault
No Zero, Decades of out of control spending has brought us this doom. All u DC Hacks did was punt solving the crisis down the road.
But there ain’t much road left.
Ahem, you started it, Mr. President.
You spent, and spent, and spent.
You wanted still more money.
You set the arbitrary deadline.
You stomped out of negotiations that some said were going well.
You demanded your way.
You demeaned those who cautioned restraint.
You held press conferences and whined, and whined, and whined.
You have talked the economy into the ditch.
You have terrified business owners, homeowners and investors.
You have terrified the sick and the elderly.
You own the economy.
Excuses, excuses, excuses.
did anyone remind ayatollah obama how less than a week ago he and his party were upset Wall Street was not in a big panic over this “manufactured crisis”??
“It’s not my fault.”
“Really, it’s not my fault.”
“Don’t blame me for this.”
“Whatcha lookin’ at me for?”
“I didn’t do nothing.”
“Now is not the time for profits” .... during a recession.
A. Joe Stalin.
B. Jimmy Carter.
C. Karl Marx.
D. Barak Obama.
E. Robert Mugabe.
F. Fidel Castro.
G. Hugo Chavez.
H. Vladamir Putin.
of course, everything since Genesis is Bushs’ Fault. And those nasty wasty Wepublicans of course!
Unfortunately he's not far off the mark in that. So many Government educated citizens truly don't have a clue about the reality of any given situation. They actually believe the BS the MSM shoves down their throats on a daily basis. Remember news for most of these folks consists of a quick glance at the headlines or maybe a snippet or two from a sound byte. Obama and the Communists are all too aware of this and their comrades in the MSM make sure they put out this BS with that in mind.
It would save our kids the problem of worrying about this if the country just outlawed Socialism and Communism. We need another McCarthy. Consider the number of Communists in Washington today.
The crisis is in the pudding.
The economy was damaged by ,The mindless democrat meddling, starting in 07.
Right on its not Obama’s crappy policys ,no way his ideas are gold I tell ya gold!
No worries...he will start blaming Bush again next week. This POS illegal in our White House has never taken credit for anything
negative and always puffs himself up when anything positive happens. He is a child screwing up an adults job.
You got it right. Typical dictator speak when he knows he owns the entire mess now.
I’m still waiting to learn what classes he might have taken at Occidental (much less Columbia College or Harvard). I bet I’m more educationally qualified than he is.
If we were being led well, no blame on the fighting over the debt limit, the earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, etc. would ever be needed. Our economic status used to be strong, and we could endure those things - and even be able to help other countries without feeling a crunch.
The Blame for our dead economy is OBAMA...period. It might have been injured before...but Obama killed it!
No argument from me, though I suspect that the issue really does boil down to whether he can convince more than half of the 20% in the middle that he’s got goodies for them and so should be confirmed. 40% of us are permanently alienated. 40% of us depend directly on his booty (shake yer booty, Obammy!). It’s the middle that makes the difference.
Only question: will enough of the enslaved vote to overcome the combination of the other two?
I’m sorry, Hussein, but the ruined-economy ship sailed long before the debt ceiling ruckus. In fact, you were at the helm of the ship.”
He really hasn’t a clue, but, unfortunately, his followers are even more clueless.
You’re a Liar.
We’re throwing you out of office soon, you twit.
The people of the USA
He says over things “we can’t control”. And that’s the problem. The government controls too much. But the lib socialists want it to control everything.
retard, he trumped up the date. Pathetic, simply pathetic.
He is insane.
"Unfortunately the debt ceiling crisis over the last month, I think, has had an unnecessary negative impact on the economy ... as well," he said.
Which set does the pointless war in Libya we've been dragged into belong to? Things we couldn't control because the Euros decided to try to push Gadaffi out, or the one we could control because we decided to join them?
“Pass The Buck” Obama strikes again. Is there any excuse he hasn’t used?
