You Built That, Mr. President

Real Clear Politics:

Krauthammer On Obama: “This Is His Economy And He’s Pretending He’s Just Stumbled Upon It”

I find it astonishing that he goes around making speeches in which he deplores the state of the economy, the growing income inequality, chronic unemployment, staggering middle class income, and it’s as if he has been a bystander, as if he’s been out of the country for the last five years. It’s his economy; he’s the president.

He’s talking as if this is the Bush economy, I don’t know, the Eisenhower economy, and he just arrived in a boat and he discovers how bad the economy is. This is a result of the policies he instituted. He gave us the biggest stimulus in the history of the milky way, and he said it would jump start the economy. The result has been the slowest recovery, the worst recovery since World War II, and that is the root of all of the problems he’s talking about, the income inequality — the median income of the middle class of Americans has declined by 5% in his one term. So who’s responsible for that? Those were his policies. He talks about this in the abstract and he actually gets away with it in a way that I find absolutely astonishing, it’s magical. This is his economy and he’s pretending he’s just stumbled upon it. And the policies he proposes are exactly the ones he proposed and implemented in the first term.

Yeah, I know. They all do it. Presidents claim credit for every good thing that happens during their term(s) and blame everything bad on someone else.

But George Bush is long gone. You built that, Mr. President. You wanted the job. You were ruthless in seeking it and ruthless in fighting to keep it.

I never thought you were up to the job. I’m not real happy about being proven right. But it belongs to you.

Own it.

    The only way that this will belong to Obama is if the media makes him the proprietor, the media must hold him accountable and it does not appear that this will happen.

      I disagree a tad – this will belong to the big Zero whether today’s media agrees or not. They are doing their best to obfuscate the cause of our malaise, but future historians and economists will not be so kind.

      That said, in the short run you ARE correct. The nation’s low-information voters will not know for another generation or two they’ve been thoroughly and permanently reamed and creamed from both ends by their friends at today’s Dhimocrat party, and their lord and master, Teh Won.

      If we survive, and to me it’s a question, it will take three decades to recover. I will not be here to see it. I just hope my grandkids will.

    votermom, I thought the last guy in IOW was Holder but now not sure. Perhaps we need a discussion or contest to identify the last guy.

    house bill to defund obamacare gains 100 cosponsers
    senate bill has 22

    I listened to karl rove on tv yesterday acting like a scared whiny little boy. “but they will blame the republicans if the government shuts down”.
    get some backbone if the bill passes to stop funding obamacare and backtrack refuses to sign it that is on him and the democrats this is the time to take a stand. obamacare hurts this country. basically it is an attack on the economy of this country

      Of course! That’s exactly what Reagan did to stimulate the economy. Go on all the talk shows. Be “charming”. Works wonders. Entrepreneurs will respond by opening up tens of businesses. Economy (according to the media) will be “fixed”!
      And then back to Martha’s Vineyard for some serious stuff.

    dems cry backtrack is rude and dismissive during meeting.

    well you sold you souls to put him in office. why should anyone show you respect. he bought you, he owns you

    There’s nothing astonishing or magical about it: he is not held accountable by the (ahem) free press. He can say whatever the hell he wants and doesn’t have to justify any of it, and most people are not informed so they just believe the same blah blah blah. If it wasn’t so damaging, it would be incredibly boring and predictable.
