Skip to comments.Obama Blames Republicans For His Own Economic Incompetence (It's Never His Fault!!!)

Election 2012: Whoever wins the blame game over the weak recovery wins the election. The record shows that President Obama is most at fault. But shockingly, most Americans don't see it that way.
A new IBD/TIPP poll shows fully three-fourths of Americans continue to blame President Bush and Republicans for today's poor economy.
While such attitudes are shocking, we believe they haven't yet caught up with the facts, and merely reflect the prevailing White House and media spin.
On Friday, for example, Obama faulted GOP leaders on the Hill, arguing they've blocked his pro-union jobs plan "simply because it's an election year."
His surrogates have parroted the line in the media. On ABC's "This Week" show on Sunday, former Obama aide Van Jones suggested Republicans are actually rooting for Obama and the unemployed to fail.
"Obama's a lifeguard trying to help people drowning," while "these guys are sitting back on a rock hoping more people drown," said Jones, an avowed socialist.
Democrat operative Ed Rendell chimed in: "They're cutting police and ending safety on the streets."
MSNBC's "Hardball" host Chris Matthews read from the same talking points in a June 4 broadcast.
"Republicans in Congress put up their wall to action," he said. "They don't want Obama to succeed so they're giving him nothing that he could call success."

Zer0 doesn't have the depth of support in the US that Al-queida have worldwide among jihadists. We can take out the #2 Al-queida guy day after day without effect. Zer0 is running out of options and so it will be effective to smack him and his #2 of the moment for the next 5 months.

I don’t know who WE is, but for my part I think they are just too friggin stupid to see the truth that is in front of them.
So, do you really think he is a typical narcissist?
And the fact that 3/4 of the people don’t blame obama for anything makes me think he’ll probably be re-elected.
Is he a typical narcissist?
