Obama’s Weekly Address: Unintentionally Blames Self For Crummy Economic Conditions

And, of course, he’s taking total credit for what was a truly bipartisan piece of legislation

(White House) Hi, everybody. I’m here in Ohio, where I’ve spent the past couple days talking with folks about our central challenge as a country — not just reclaiming all the jobs lost to the recession, but reclaiming the economic security that so many Americans have lost over the last decade.

Let’s think about that: over the past decade, Obama has been president for 3 1/2 years. He was a junior Senator who was supposed to be getting Bill Clinton coffee for 6 of those years. Democrats controlled the Senate for 5 of those years. Democrats had full control of Congress during his first two of being President. So Obama just unintentionally blamed himself and Democrats for the poor economic conditions and poor economic security.

First, it will keep thousands of construction workers on the job rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure.

Wasn’t that what the Stimulus was supposed to do? Darn, I forgot that the projects weren’t “shovel ready” and that the money was wasted on repaving roads that didn’t need it and painting bridges.

For months, I’ve been calling on Congress to reform and expand the financial aid that’s offered to students. I’ve been asking them to help us give two million Americans the opportunity to learn the skills that businesses in their area are looking for — right now — through partnerships between community colleges and employers. In America, a higher education cannot be a luxury reserved for just a privileged few. It’s an economic necessity that every American family should be able to afford.

What the hell has he been smoking? “Privileged few”? People of all stripes and income levels go to college. And have been amassing huge levels of debt to enter Obama’s jobs market where there are no jobs.

Thanks and have a great weekend.

“Now I’m going to take a long weekend after some hard work campaigning and using a pen to sign a bill after taking a long weekend last week. Sorry everyone else is searching for a job. Maybe all you white collar workers should pick up a shovel.”
