The economy contracted by 0.1 percent during the last quarter of 2012. This comes as a shock because the shrinkage came during an election season. The media couldn't have reported terrible economic news going into President Obama's reelection. The facts just wouldn't have fit with the narrative. So the news hits unexpectedly now. Anyhow, this is all George W. Bush's fault for fighting two wars on a credit card, Europe's fault for creating economic headwinds, John Boehner's fault for not transforming himself into a human rubber stamp, Tina Turner's fault for renouncing her citizenship, the greedy businessmen's fault for not hiring people in the face of losses, etc. Just don't dare say that the current occupant of the Oval Office bears any responsibility. He just isn't responsible. Really he isn't.
We don't need another hero.
Jay Carney has already come out and said that its the Republicans fault.
If he's not responsible, let's just say that he's irresponsible. That seems appropriate.
But other than news junkies and those of us Conservatives pre-disposed to understanding how he turns to $hite everything he touches, who knows about it?
Simple numbers since G.W.ís administration :
Cost of gasoline - doubled
Unemployment - doubled
National Debt - increased from $10 Trillion to $6 Trillion
That pesky GDP? Republicans fault.
We're being governed by clowns.
