Michelle Obama: ‘Instead of Pointing Fingers and Placing Blame, Barack Got to Work’
cnsnews.com ^ | 9/17/12 | Melanie Hunter

Posted on 09/17/2012 4:24:06 PM PDT by Justaham

First lady Michelle Obama, speaking in Gainesville, Fla., on Monday, said that while the nation was on the verge of another Great Depression, President Barack Obama did not assign blame – instead “he got to work.”

“The economy was losing 800,000 jobs every month, and a lot folks wondered whether we were headed for another great depression. Now this is what Barack faced on day one as president. That’s what awaited him, but instead of pointing fingers and placing blame, Barack got to work, because he was thinking about folks like my dad, like his grandmother,” the first lady said.

“Since the day he took office, on issue after issue, crisis after crisis, that’s what I’ve seen, that’s what we’ve all seen in my husband. We’ve seen his values at work. We’ve seen his vision unfold. We’ve seen the depths of his character, courage, and convictions. Here’s proof: Think back to when Barack first took office, and our economy was on the brink of collapse,” she said.

“Michelle Obama: ‘Instead of Pointing Fingers and Placing Blame, Barack Got to Work’”

I burst into laughter when I saw this. The woman is delusional all her husband does is blame, blame, blame
and her too!

I feel like I am living in an alternate universe.

“President Barack Obama did not assign blame –”

Right - then why is the name “Bush” engraved on his tongue?

I can’t even comment on the rest of her nonsense words.

Did she just say Barack didn’t blame anyone? Do the words “mess we inherited” mean anything to her at all????

Yeah, he was working real hard in Las Vegas. At a time when the nation was having tremendous anxiety, President Obama ran to Las Vegas and hid at a fundraiser.

I’m sorry - but I have to comment on your statement. I believe you need to modify it. It should be:

“EXCUSE ME while I HURL!”

I believe you needed more emphasis on that first part! ;-)

Exactly, here's another source:

Using Google, exact phrase searches (in quotes):

"Obama Blames Bush" = 208,000

And by comparison:

"Bush Blames Clinton" = 61,300

Other comparisons:

"Obama Blames" = 336,000

"Bush Blames" = 27,400

"Obama Blames Everyone" = 53,500

"Bush Blames Everyone" = 46

"Obama Blames America" = 16,700

"Bush Blames America" = 18

Also bear in mind that we're either comparing 8 years of Bush (or in the latter examples, more likely 12 to include the father) vs. not quite 4 years of Obama, which if they equally played the "blame game", there should be far more results for "Bush Blames ...".

Obama not pointing fingers of blame - yeah sure. Follow any one of the search results when you google "Obama Blames ...." from above, and you'll see him doing just that.

Not ONCE did I ever see 0bama place blame on anyone (Except President Bush numerous times, ATM machines, tsunamis, Congress, The House, ‘the Republicans’, Wall Street, and limits imposed upon him by the U.S. Constitution, etc.).

It’s one thing to revise history years after people have forgotten the truth, but.. Revising RECENT history, like from a few weeks or months ago? That takes nerve!

“he got to work”

Running up the deficit

Taxing us into oblivion

Forcing Obamacare down our throat

Spending, spending and more spending

Ruling the country’s credit rating

Etc, etc, etc,
