Yesterday I scoffed at First Lady Michelle Obama after she said her husband doesn't have any sort of ego. But today, she's outdone herself. Now, she says that President Obama is not one to point fingers.
File this one under, "ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!" (emphasis mine)
First lady Michelle Obama said Wednesday that President Obama did not look to blame others for the challenges he faced as president, an apparent rebuke to Republican accusations that the White House continues to point the finger at President George W. Bush for the lagging economy.
"See, but your president, he didn't point fingers," Mrs. Obama said, at a campaign fundraiser in New York. "He didn't place blame. Instead, he got to work, because he was thinking about folks like my dad and like his grandmother. See, and that's why he cut taxes for small businesses and for working families because he believes that in America, teachers and firefighters should not pay higher tax rates than millionaires and billionaires."
Seriously? It's been four years and he's still blaming George W. Bush for every failure of his own presidency -- from Fast & Furious to the economy. I mean, c'mon -- the guy has even blamed ATMs for unemployment!
He's repeatedly blames Republicans for "obstructing" his agenda.
Are we seeing a pattern? Rush Limbaugh has many, many more:
Perhaps the First Lady would like to rephrase her comments...?
