    For more than three years, Barack Obama has whined about having inherited a bad economy whenever data shows the consistent stagnation wrought by his economic policies. Regardless of how bad the recession is, Obamanomics has produced the worst recovery in the post-World War II period, as the data from the Minneapolis Federal Reserve shows (see update below):

    Conservatives ran out of patience a long time ago with the “I inherited a bad economy” excuse, but it’s not just conservatives who find themselves tired of Obama’s pat response. Robert Reich scolded Obama yesterday on the pages of the Huffington Post, writing that the excuse is “wearing thin” and that this is Obama’s economy:
    In Ohio yesterday, Obama reiterated that he had inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression. That’s true. But the excuse is wearing thin. It’s his economy now, and most voters don’t care what he inherited.

    I will readily admit Obama inherited a bad economy and I will even give him a pass on using that for the first couple of years of his presidency but that does not give you free pass forever at some point you have to take responsibility for your policies and there results.

    He DID inherit a bad economy, and everybody knows it. That doesn't fade with time, it DID happen. And then he got the lovely crew that promised on his inauguration night that they would do everything they could to see him fail. Unfortunately for them, fortunately for us, he did a fair amount of circumventing.

    Also - the rest of the world isn't doing that great. Except I'm guessing China? Where you really should go live if you hate this country so much.

    Obama hasn't taken responsibility for anything yet.......

    Are we supposed to believe that he is perfect and he has made no mistakes???

    The guy is an arrogant clown.....

    Well, he sounded pretty resolute when he was running for office, didn't he? He wasn't whining about anything then and claiming he couldn't do it in one term. He said the opposite. He would be a one term presidident if he didn't Cut the deficit by 50 percent and bring good economic times back to the USA.

    The whining started when failure was the result. Then the "Bush DID It"mantra began. We don't want excuses. We want results.

    Does Obama get credit for...

    Stopping an economic collapse?
    Averting a Depression?
    Doubling the stock market?
    record low interest rates?


    What, exactly have Republicans accomplished in the last four years?

    Oh yea....they protected tax cuts for billionaires
