It is always someone else’s fault
The other day,I wrote that President Obama has “run out of both charm and ideas.”I was too kind.
To judge from the string of whoppers in his dreary jobs speech yesterday,he’s also run out of facts. And he’s still whining about the problems he inherited and blaming Republicans.
He might as well be barking at the moon. That’s sort of what he is doing,because the American people are tuning him out at a stunning pace.
The latest Gallup Poll gives him a record low 47 percent approval. Only 26 percent in another poll say he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. Naturally,his press secretary attacks the pollsters,likening them to children with crayons.
And Obama plunges on with his blame-game act. It’s tired,unpresidential and ineffective,all the more so because he’s banking on a bill of goods to prop himself up.
The most egregious example came when Obama said yesterday the $700 billion bank-bailout fund,or TARP,was “launched hastily under the last administration”and was “flawed.”
