Skip to comments.If Obama can claim credit for killing bin Laden, why canít he take credit for the economy today?

As President Obama and his administration are constantly telling us, the horrible economy is not his fault because he inherited the Worst recession since the Great Depression. One can certainly make that argument. You just cant get it to stick.
If you could however, what youd basically be saying is that that 3 ½ years after taking office the President of the United States is essentially helpless to impact the economy. No, no, no! his supporters would no doubt respond: Thats not what we mean! The entire economy, nay the entire worlds economic system would have collapsed if President Obama had not saved us. Thats simply a 2012 version of the absurd and decidedly non-empirical Jobs created or saved measure the administration proffered when it became obvious that their stimulus was a failure.
If the President is not responsible for the economy after three years in office, what are we to make of his taking credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden after just two? The financial meltdown began in 2007 and by 2009 we were officially out of the recession. Yet key pieces of intelligence that led to the CIA eventually locating bin Laden were discovered even earlier, in 2005 and 2007. In addition, critical to the success of the intelligence gathering process was information garnered from Khalid Shaikh Mohammed using the very enhanced interrogation techniques candidate Obama objected to.
As Obama seeks a second term so that he can begin to fix the economy, Vice President Biden is there to tell voters the only things they really need to know about the Presidents first term: bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive. The President apparently wants to take credit for GM as well, despite the fact that the ill advised rescue of the UAW er of GM began under President Bush also.

Obama can claim credit for the economy today.
He won’t because the economy is poop.
Killing OBL is a winner. Killing the economy.. Not so much.
Barry Soetoro is like the rooster who takes credit for the sunrise.
Good heavens, what is that? A head-dress or... or... ??? I’m afraid to even guess. Is that a rattler? Dreadlocks? I can’t figure out what I’m looking at, GG.

It is a Vorlon and you are not actually looking at it, you are seeing it’s “encounter suit”
It is an alien species from the Sci-Fi series babylon 5 who says enigmatic things and the quote it attributed to it.
Thanks, GG. I enjoyed some of the early B-5 shows, but lost track of it a while ago.
A Moonbat on Facebook is giving Obama credit for a budget surplus in April. Well, there is no budget. And there’s a reason why revenue surpassed expenditures in April. It’s APRIL!
Bingo: taxes-due time! “Moonbat on Facebook” is right!
Obama killed bin Ladin AND the U.S. economy.
It’s probably too long for a bumper sticker.
When I explained April to him. He responded that I should just put my white robe and hood on. After further investigation on this guy. It turns out he’s a Masshole in NH living on a “disability” from the Post Office.
Liberals do not want liberty for anyone.
They would rather dictate what we do, what we buy, where we go and when, and what we can do while there.
The Republic you save may be your own.
