Obama is currently giving a press conference where he’s explaining the financial crisis intelligently.
What channel are you watching? I must be watching the wrong press conference. In the one I’m watching, the President is claiming that the current emergency requires that Congress give him expanded executive power. I’m either watching Bush in 2001 or Obama in 2009. (Or Clinton after Oklahoma City).
I’m tired of Obama justifying his trillion dollar deficits by arguing that he inherited a trillion dollar deficit from the Bush administration. Prior Bush deficits were considerably smaller (but still too big), and we only had a trillion dollar deficit last year because of bailouts that Obama supported and many Republicans opposed. Obama and the Democrats own last year’s deficit just as much as Bush does.
You asked for it, America.
