Blame Game


Fox News has an instructive piece on President Obama’s finger-pointing jobs speech at Brookings today. According to the piece, Obama described Republicans as “an opposition party which, unfortunately, after having presided over the decision-making that had led to the crisis, decided to hand it over to others to solve.” This is wrong on many levels, but most obviously in the sense that the GOP somehow “decided” to hand the reins over to Obama. That decision came from the American people. However, the recent poll showing media darling Obama running only a scant point ahead of the mercilessly mocked Sarah Palin on the favorability scale suggests that the American people may be in the process of rethinking things.
