Here we are, in Obama’s… second… um…. term… (Damn, that’s hard to say) and he is still blaming Bush for the economy he has presided over for four years.
President Obama opened his first White House press conference in eight months Wednesday with a familiar refrain: Blame Bush.
Before diving into an explanation of how he wants to avoid the so-called “fiscal cliff” — and imploring House Republicans to approve legislation to raise taxes on high earners — Obama sought to once again remind Americans that he took office, four years ago, during a recession that started with the George W. Bush administration.
“Right now our economy is still recovering from a very deep and damaging crisis, so our top priority has to be jobs and growth,” Obama said. “We’ve got to build on the progress that we’ve made.”
Not a word from the running dog media at the conference.
