White House Continues to Blame Bush for Ongoing Economy’s Problems

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 30, 2014

Dan Pfeiffer, a Senior Obama advisor, hit the talk shows this past weekend.  In a question-and-answer session with Fox News Chris Wallace, video below, Pfeiffer continued to blame Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, for the country’s continued poor economic.

During the exchange, Wallace pointed to the following economic problems that plague the country that worsened during the Obama presidency:

  • median      household income dropped from $55,900 to $52,100,
  • poverty      increased by 6.7 million to 46.5 million, and
  • participation      in the labor force dropped from 65.% to a 36-year low of 62.8%.

When asked by Wallace if a stronger economy would have helped lessen these problems Pfeiffer responded: “Well, absolutely, but I think it’s important to remember this president inherited the worst economic situation since the Great Depression.”

The gall that Washington politicians have is remarkable.  We are into the sixth year of the Obama presidency and his administration continues to blame his predecessor for the ongoing economic malaise.  These folks have no shame.
