anyone notice Obama's dig at Bush (& Republicans)?

Did you catch when he said he 'inherited' a trillion dollar deficit? (with a cocky little smirk on his face) A nice little bash at Bush administration. Funny, how there was no mention of the current deficit after the porky stimulus package...just a bunch of smooth talking promises.

  • That little dig was in reference to things like the new helicopter fleet Bush ordered (Obama said the present Presidential Helicopter was great!), and other things like the helicopter.

    It's about time the common man of America means something. He's trying to bring jobs back to the USA, especially in the auto industry, and the industries that American invented in saving power, and other countries are manufacturing and using. Batteries made in Korea???? Let's face it, the American people need to remember what hard work is, and apply themselves, and realize that there aren't get-rich-quick schemes that don't hurt people.

  • I noticed it on the Whitehouse.gov website on Jan.20. Stating he would never leave Americans in Katrina like situations. And then on Jan.26 he left the state of KY in the same manner. He is an a$$hole.

  • How do you inherit something you begged people to give to you? he wasn't forced to be President, he asked to be elected.  He did NOT inherit, he chose to run for Pres.


    He has put HIS actions in place to do what he considers will "fix" our economy. Liberal Lawmakers now have the ball rolling.  Obama now owns the economy.

  • Odd, I could swear I read somewhere, that all the stuff a president signs into laws n stuff has to first get approved by these people called a congress. Some of them are senators, and they come from every state, even Illinois. Perhaps Obama has heard of them?
