Liberal columnist Maureen Dowd will, from time to time, take a more honest look at her own leftist brothers and sisters. This week she does so with Barack Obama – a president who blames everything and anyone other than himself for problems and mistakes that take place while he is president.
In his renomination acceptance speech here on Thursday night, he told us that America’s problems were tougher to solve than he had originally thought.
And that’s why he has kindly agreed to give us more time.
Because, after all, it’s our fault.
…We’re so lame. We were naïve, brimming with confidence that we could slow the rise of the oceans, heal the planet, fix the cracks in the Capitol dome.
We never should have let the Congressional Democrats run wild with their stimulus spending on pork that didn’t even create the right kinds of jobs.
…Our forbearing leader didn’t pander to us with that standard breakup line: “It’s not you, it’s me.”
He gave it to us straight: It’s not me, it’s you.
…Maybe we relied too much on Valerie Jarrett, a k a the Night Stalker and Keeper of the Essence. LINK
