It was all more of the same, with not a single new idea to be found. Obama blamed George Bush for his woes within 10 seconds, whining about the impossible challenges he inherited. Someone unfamiliar with the 2008 campaign who watched this speech would assume Barack Obama was chosen at random from a list of unwilling victims to be held captive in the Oval Office for four years. It is very difficult to understand why he would want to be re-elected for such a miserable, futile job, or why any American would want to re-elect him.
The theme of this press conference was the terrible economic “headwinds,” which not even our super-genius President can overcome. Of course, that’s mostly due to obstructionist Republicans, who refused to pass Obama’s second pork-encrusted $500 billion “stimulus” bill. Why, those ingrates are still asking what happened to all the money from the first trillion-dollar Obama stimulus!
