Democratic Governor Confirms We’re Not Better Off

Posted by Steve Markowitz on September 6, 2012

In another sign that Barack Obama is losing some of his luster with the mainstream media, CBS’s Bob Schieffer through a hardball question at Maryland’s Democratic Gov., Martin O’Malley.  During last weekend’s Face the Nation, host Schieffer asked the governor: “Can you honestly say that people are better off today than they were four years ago?

O’Malley attempted to put lipstick on a pig answering: “No, but that’s not the question of this election.  The question, without a doubt, we are not as well off as we were before George Bush brought us the Bush job losses, the Bush recession, the Bush deficits, the series of desert wars – charged for the first time to credit cards, the national credit card.”

Schieffer still saw a pig in the poke appropriately responding:  “George Bush is not on the ballots.”

It is remarkable that four years into the Obama presidency the Administration continues to blame the previous president for its failures.  Barack Obama ran for office promising the American people that his policies would improve the economy including getting the unemployment rate down to 6% and halving the US budget deficit.  Obama knew of the economic situation at that time.  There was no equivocation on his promises and therefore he must be held accountable for failure to execute.
