Well, isn't that special?

So, let me get this straight. After campaigning in 2008 vigorously making the point that the economy was bad — real bad — and the only thing that could save us was the "hope" and the "change" of a Barack Obama presidency, our dear leader tells us now that he really didn't understand how bad — real bad — it really, really was.

Well, isn't that special?

It's also not believable.

America lost 4 million jobs in the six months before he took office and 4 million jobs in the six months after he took office.

"So the die had been cast," he said, "and a lot of us didn't understand how bad it was going to get."

On the contrary, my dear sir. You, Mr. HOTP (Healer Of The Planet), told us during the campaign that America was in dire straits economically. You said you had the answer. Now you say that you really didn't get it, well, that's just too thin of an excuse that comes far too late in our misery that is the Obama first term. Your OJT presidency has made things worse.
