President Obama has said:
"We're inheriting a $1.3 trillion deficit from the previous administration." (May 14, 2009)
"Over 525 detainees were released from Guantanamo under the previous administration." (May 21, 2009)
"The bank bailout began under the previous administration." (July 29, 2009)
"When my administration took office six months ago, we faced the worst recession since the Great Depression" (Aug. 6, 2009)
"We did it without the earmarks and pork-barrel projects the previous administration had loaded up with" (Aug. 6, 2009)
"I had gift-wrapped, waiting for me at the door a $1.3 billion deficit" (Aug. 15, 2009)
Obama knew of all these situations when campaigning for the office of president (if not, he should not have run). Obama asked for the job and won on many promises (since broken). It is about time he grew up, accept the job he was elected to do and quit blaming President Bush and any and all others.
All I can say is Presidents Bush, Clinton, Reagan and even Nixon look pretty good right now!
