The next guy will legitimately be able to say he inherited a mess, but I suspect that he will instead just roll up his sleeves and try to get started fixing the problem.
Leaders don't whine like the petulant child president does. We have a real struggle ahead because of the damage the Marxist has inflicted, but we can fix a lot of problems right away with roll backs on his legislation, executive fiats and some draconian budget cutting.
Did Reagan ever whine about the Carter Economy he inherited? Did GW Bush ever complain about the issues he inherited from Clinton? The trashing of the White House, the “stolen” paintings that the Clintons took, the removal of the “W” keys on the computers?
That is all that Barry has ever done, aside from playing more golf in 2 years than all previous presidents - combined. Whine, blame someone else. He is utterly incompetent.
And, I might suggest that the downward economic spiral that Bush left was started by Congress’s odious flaws in both the Energy arena as well as Bwarny Fwank and the Housing bubble. When gas hit $5/gallon; people had a choice; pay the mortgage or drive to work, or to buy groceries. Gas prices skyrocketed, as well as electrical and natural gas.
Congress’s responsibility is to ensure a smooth, steady supply of energy (that’s partially why we have an Energy Department), and their gross mis-managment of the Fanny Mae and various HUD loans - all lead to the collapse we enjoyed then, and are still enjoying now.
Obama simply added his ill-thought out plans on top of the pile, thus making a decent sized pile, a monument to stupidity.
