This is rich, coming from our Clown-in-Chief. I like the picture that accompanies the article. I think he's channeling Emmett Kelly:

Obamalini knows that if the Euro doesn’t stabilize along with the EMU, it could all come apart before our election, thereby precipitating a crisis here at a time most inopporune for Obamalini. I, on the other hand, think that it would be a shame to waste this crisis ;-)

This guy is looking for any port in the storm. First it was Bush, then bad luck, then Congress now let’s try the Euros. What a pathethic excuse for a leader.

Bingo! So when the economy continues to sink under his Marxist policies, he and his cheerleaders in the media will talk about an "unprecedented" problem in Europe. So predictable.

Apparently, he’s saving the remaining “blame Bush” excuses for the Homeland.

Gettin big in the pants are ya? The narcissist and chief is spreading his wings and his vision of lies and deceptions. Hope those idiots have sense enough to tell him to f off. Maybe he sees the signs and wants to run for president of the European union since he seems to have no chance in hell here unless he and his Cretans commit massive voter fraud

I was on a conference call today review the world economic situation. US banks have limited direct investment into Greece debt, but have a high derivative position. Also, with bank to bank lending (US to Europe), the US is exposed with the European banks that have lent to Greece. I don't have $$ figures since the presentation has not been email to the participants.

President Barack Obama has criticised European leaders for failing to tackle the debt crisis and has demanded "more effective, co-ordinated" fiscal policy.

His first instict is always to attack and blame others, no matter what the issue is. Interesting how that picture captures how clueless he really is. It screams epic fail.

Blaming Bush isn't working anymore? Hey, he's got to find a way to blame ANYONE but himself.

Gawd. What a LOSER.

Idiot obama acts like a radical malcontent who hates everything and everyone.

His supposed "brilliance" is nothing more than a smoothe line of b.s.

As he tries to make the middle class into the Eloi, and the entitlement class into the morlocks, look to be eaten at first opportunity, ESPECIALLY if this new "jobs act" somehow gets passed...it is more full of pork...that's socialist pork, than the other bills he's pushed at us.

It's time to tell wonder boy "NO" for one last time, and mean it..

Hitler blamed the Jews and Obama is blaming the Europeans for his own failings.

I just assumed that this was an article from The Onion.

This wee little man is pathetic.

Americans are blaming the Europeans, we’re blaming Obama. How many more strawmen and red herrings can this guy produce?

I had to chuckle the other day, when I heard the news report the stocks dropping like 200 some points, negating whatever gains it had...and then the blame fell on the investors not having faith in Europe.

SO predictable, this admin...and enemedia are.
