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.

Obastard has done nothing BUT blame Bush since he got into office!

Not true. He also blamed the founders: "Our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change than I would like sometimes.”

Revising RECENT history, like from a few weeks or months ago? That takes nerve!

Actually once the people are used to it, it becomes
very easy.

“The economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month” ???

Who has the “new unemployment claims record for late 2008?

The current activity in that department is 400,000 NEW unemployment claims a WEEK. By my math, that is twice the number Boxcar Butt is trying to sell us on.

“he got to work”

Paying back cronies with Keynesian “stimulus”

Enabling the Caliphate

Unsecuring the Southern border

Arming the Mexican cartels

Instigating class warfare with Marxist rhetoric

I guess he got a second fulltime job, being a golfer.

He’s worked very hard considering he’s a part-time President. I mean, he’s able to do all his “Presidenting” in a few minutes a week. He figured out he could avoid getting bogged down by skipping most of those “security” briefings; his own jobs council meetings, they weren’t necessary for him, either.

Trouble is, his pay was never adjusted to part time.

I guess he’s been very successful as well, since his goal was to push America into disastrous decline. I mean, he’s not done yet, but he’s got a few more months... er... minutes left to finish up.

Guess they will break out the girls next.

Just saw an ad for a movie to be released Oct 12 about the 1979 Embassy takeover.....called “ARGO” by GK Films —
Produced by G Clooney and directed by Ben Affleck...
so guess shouldn’t expect too much - they will probably depict that J Carter was ready to get the hostages back and everything got screwed up by RR getting elected????

What some artistic sort needs to do pair this quote with a montage, O playing golf (# of rounds), shooting hoops (# of games), vacations (# and where to), etc.

Also would love to see a montage of how many rounds of golf he played during Katrina, how he went campaigning when Americans were raped, killed, and dragged through the streets in Libya. How much he spent on vacations while 11 million Americans are out of work.

Wish I could paint or draw but alas, no talent here.

Yeah, me too. Hurl! He got to work alright, PLAYING GOLF, SHOOTING BASKETS, AVOIDING DOING A BUDGET, TAKING LAVISH VACATIONS - SOME WITH MICHELLE, CAMPAIGNING, GIVING ENDLESS TELEPROMPTER SPEECHES, GETTING THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD SET UP IN THE ARAB SPRING. As for Michelle, she has to do some fast jive talking if she wants to hang onto all those fringe benefits and lavish vacations.

Nicely done. Not only does the sockpuppet blame everyone else, he does it in that way that spoiled, coddled, manipulative moma’s-boys brats do it.

Constant adoring and coddling by all his “aunts” in msm allow the boy-king to keep on playing.
