I was reading an article at The Hill, “Obama Puts Bully In Bully Pulpit,” and looked at the comments at the bottom.I came across an exchange that was impressive, especially the response by reader Wesley69 to someone who essentially claimed Obama was not at fault for anything.
To put it mildly, Wesley69 took umbrage at this. The comment was so good at enumerating the many, many actions for which Obama is responsible, I want to share it with you (since this commenter didn’t supply a link, and a Google check did not bring up this list, my impression is that this person crafted this list. If anyone finds out differently, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.). Again, this is from the Comments section at The Hill’s, “Obama Puts Bully In Bully Pulpit,” and was provided by wesley69:
*After your $1 trillion Stimulus, did not turn the economy around, nor drop the unemployment rate as you claimed, the current state of the economy belongs to you.
*Your screwed up plans such as the cash for clunkers, the mortgage rescue plan that have failed to provide the relief you claimed they would give belongs to you.
*Your bailouts of the automobile industry, with taxpayer money, getting the US involved in government ownership, then selling its shares at a huge loss belongs to you.
*The fact that Chrysler’s Volt, the hybrid electric-electric car produced with the help of the Stimulus money costs $100,000 and there was so little demand for the car, it had to stop production belongs to you, Mr. President.
