Bombarded by Fox New Sunday host Chris Wallace with statistics demonstrating the failure of President Obama’s policies, White House Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer Sunday fell back on an old standby: LOOK AT THE MESS BUSH LEFT US!!
I think it’s important to remember this president inherited the worst economic situation since the Great Depression. A financial crisis.
Notice in the video below how when Wallace mentions that the recession ENDED four years ago, Pfeiffer starts to flail, blurting out every White House talking point he can come up with: We have created millions of jobs; we’re pumping lots of oil; the auto industry is back; and the golden classic, We’ve made tremendous progress but there’s much more work to do.
Yes, there is much more work to do.
Wallace throws in a nice line, which he surely came up with the night before: If things are so great, how come they’re so lousy?
The reasons the economy is stinking up the place are very simple. Instead of focusing on the helping the economy soar, Obama burdened the economy with Obamacare, refused to restore confidence by dealing seriously with the deficit, and added thousands of pages of new regulations, including overbearing financial “reform.”
You can’t enact your liberal dream agenda and fix the economy at the same time. Obama chose his priorities over restoring economic growth. And most of the nation is suffering for it.
