He’s still blaming Bush:
“[Republicans] run up these wild debts and then when we take over, we’ve got to clean it up.”
No one can defend profligate spending by government. The creep of big government is inexorable and both Republicans and Democrats are guilty of feeding the beast. But not only is Obama’s spiel tired, it is also farcical.
Arguing that the deficits and debt that are overwhelming our country will be controlled and beaten back by adding even more to the deficits and debt is utterly asinine.
For that li(n)e to be swallowed the president must be expecting us to suspend all disbelief when we come into his presence. In fact, that reminds me of another pill he’s asked us to take.
