In his weekly radio address, President Barack Obama delivered his standing line to answer all the questions facing his failed administration: It’s not his fault. Blame the Republicans.
While the Republicans certainly have their problems when it comes to leadership — especially considering the flawed and failed Congress that they control — a real leader in the White House might have been able to overcome such obstacles. Obama’s inexperience and inability to focus has exacerbated problems he inherited and created many new one as well.
But in Obama’s world, he is blameless, so the message of the day in radio land Saturday was “it’s not my fault. The Republicans just kept us from fixing things.
We have the answers to these problems. We have plenty of big ideas and technical solutions from both sides of the aisle. That’s not what’s holding us back. What’s holding us back is a stalemate in Washington
While there’s been some progress on his proposals to boost the economy, Obama said “on most of the ideas that would create jobs and grow our economy, Republicans in Congress haven’t lifted a finger. They’d rather wait until after the election in November.
I think that’s wrong. This isn’t about who wins or loses in Washington. This is about your jobs, your paychecks, your children’s future. There’s no excuse for Congress to stand by and do nothing while so many families are struggling. None.
Yada, yada, yada
