A video clip of President Obama demanding responsibility for the economy has recently been unearthed and is likely to show up on your TV screen in the not-so-distant future. In July 2009, Obama bragged about how he was proud to own the economy, about how it was his responsibility to fix the economy. He goes to so far as to demand "give it to me."
Well, Mr. President, conservatives are more than happy to oblige.
Per the transcript:
“My administration has a job to do as well. That job is to get this economy back on its feet. That’s my job, and it’s a job I gladly accept. I love these folks who helped get us in this mess and then suddenly say, “Well this is Obama’s economy.” That’s fine. GIVE IT TO ME. My job is to solve problems, not to stand on the sidelines and carp and gripe. So, I welcome the job. I want the responsibility.” — President Obama, July 14, 2009
