But I Inherited this Economy; Still Using That Excuse Are You?
By: Lance Winslow
Indeed, I’m not sure about you but I’m getting very tired of the same old excuse from the Democrats and the Obama Administration; why do they keep telling us that they didn’t create this financial fiasco, and economic crisis, that they inherited it? The reality is that the challenges we face as a nation were not created in-part by one of our political parties, rather both parties combined.
In fact, I’d go so far as to say that the reason we are in this predicament is from all the backdoor deals going on behind the scenes with the politicians trading off their honor and integrity, and what they stood for to make deals with things they don’t believe in. So the reality is that Democrats are at fault as much as the Republicans, and it’s time they own up to the responsibility of the dismal job they’ve been doing, and a calamity they have created.
Not long ago, I was at a coffee shop and I was talking to an individual who is a staunch conservative and he went on a rant and said; “You told the American People, that you and your team could fix it, oh, but now, now you can’t, so you keep on blaming the last Administration, well, how much longer are we going to have to listen to this garbage?”
Obviously, he was facetiously talking to President Obama, as if he was a TV news correspondent or political pundit sending a question to the president, or as if I or someone else at the coffee shop that day was suddenly the president and he was talking to them or to me?
But, he didn’t stop there, next he said; “Similarly you told us you could fix health care, but instead of fixing it you piled on more baloney on a “wish sandwich” or is it Vegemite – believe me when I tell you there’s no such thing as a free lunch.”
And that quite frankly is how a good many Americans feel as they hear President Obama continue to blame the last Administration, rather than fixing the problem like he promised he would. No wonder America is so upset, please consider all this.
