It’s “Spot the Irony” time! Starring … @TheDemocrats

Speaks for itself.

Um. Right. Here goes:

3/4/09 – Via WaPo:

“By any measure,” he said during a March 4 event calling for government-contracting reform, “my administration has inherited a fiscal disaster.”

8/9/11 – Via Reuters:

President Barack Obama said on Monday he inherited many of the country’s problems with high debt and deficits when he entered the White House, sounding a theme likely to dominate his 2012 re-election campaign.

Speaking at a Democratic fundraiser, where families paid $15,000 to get a picture with him, Obama defended his economic record and noted that problems in Europe were affecting the United States.

“We do have a serious problem in terms of debt and deficit, and much of it I inherited,” Obama said. The financial crisis, he said, made the problem worse.

At a fundraiser in June 2012, via The Washington Examiner:

The president also said that Republicans, not Democrats, caused the current budget crisis. “I love listening to these guys give us lectures about debt and deficits. I inherited a trillion dollar deficit!” he said. Obama compared Republicans to a person who orders a steak dinner and martini and then, “just as you’re sitting down, they leave, and accuse you of running up the tab.”

That’s just for starters.

Any questions? ;)

    And then there was the Japanese tsunami among countless others. Making excuses requires about the same degree of talent as finding a workable ploy to start a cheap fight in that anything will do. Since sports is life in microcosm, there is an old saying that applies, “Winners make plays, losers make excuses.”

    What a bunch of buffoons./:)

    He didn’t inherit anything. He ran hard for the office,telling us he was the smartest person around and had all the solutions. Once he had the job, he started whining about Bush.

    Liberals are irony impaired. That’s all there is to it!

    Bam-Bam has so often blamed Bush for everything that I’ve enjoyed suggesting Romney could run an ad saying we can’t afford a full 16 years of a Bush Presidency.:-\”
