It's truly amazing how Dan Quayle-esque Boss Obama is. Of course, our illustrious mainstream media will never harp on it with regards to Obama like they did with Quayle (surprise), but the sad fact is that our Boss may actually beat the former veep for verbal blunders. Here's the latest:
Well, hereís what I know, we were just talking about responsibility and as president of the United States, itís pretty clear to me that Iím responsible for folks who are working in the federal government and you know, Harry Truman said the buck stops with you.
Actually, Truman said "the buck stops here." Saying that Truman said "the buck stops with you" allows Boss Obama to point his finger at someone else -- "Yeah, you!" Y'know, like his favorite target for assigning blame: George W. Bush. And knowing Boss Obama like we do, he'll likely twist it further: "Well, he was president too, so the buck did stop with him!"
Nevertheless, Boss Obama's overall "point," such that it is, is beyond laughable. As Conn Carroll notes,
That is an interesting line of attack for Obama to be making. Romney is claiming he should not be held accountable for decisions made by Bain Capital from 1999 through 2002 because he was on leave and did not make any of the decisions in question. Sounds straight forward enough.
But what about everything that has happened under Obama sine he was sworn into office? The murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and Fast and Furious. The Solyndra bankruptcy. The GSA Las Vegas spending scandal. Twenty-three million Americans either under or unemployed. 8.2 percent unemployment.
Will Obama claim heís been on leave since 2009? Who would Harry Truman say should be held accountable for all of that?
"On leave since 2009." Heh.
