Excuses wearing thin for Obama, media pals :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Steve Huntley

Have you heard the news? President Obama inherited an economic mess from the Bush administration.
You say that's hardly news? But it's been the message sounded over and over by the White House. Top Obama adviser David Axelrod said on one of the Sunday news shows, "He walked in the door, we had the worst economy since the Great Depression." In San Francisco, Obama talked of being "busy with our mop." White House heavy hitter Rahm Emanuel used the worst-economy-since-the-Depression line on a public TV news show.
You'd think it's October 2008, the final month in the Obama presidential candidacy, rather than October 2009, nine months into the Obama presidency. Yet the Obama White House is in full campaign mode -- maybe because it needs to mask the shortcomings of the Obama presidency.
Take, for example, all the talk of inheriting the worst economy since the 1930s crisis. That came in response to the news that the federal deficit hit $1.4 trillion.
Yet just a few months ago, the Obama camp was singing a little different tune. It was under criticism for the $787 billion stimulus package it bulldozed through Congress on grounds that massive spending was needed to keep the unemployment rate from breaching 8 percent. When joblessness hit 9.5 percent in June, Vice President Joe Biden said, "We misread how bad the economy was."

This indicates to me at least that people are beginning to catch on that Obama is all talk, and that his lack experience coupled with the appointments of people because of their support or past friendships has added nothing to solving any problems what ever. Even the choice of Biden as VP has shown to be an excessively stupid move because he lacks the intelligence or intellect to do the job. (they are not the same thing)
Rather than solve problems with sound ideas and logical plans and following through on them every time he's lack of vision and intelligent planning falls flat rather than than changing course in a productive direction he just makes another claim it's not his fault and makes another unreasonable promise he has no intention of following through on. It's as has been stated many times Obama and his minions are in constant campaign mode.
Sadly all of this goes right to his experience as an Organizer which is a misnomer because those with that title are actually Blackmailers, rabble rousers, and some might even call them thugs, who use what ever tactics they have to get people to go along with their wishes like it or not.
