Everyone remember this Obama doozy from a year ago? (h/t Gateway Pundit)

Now, my administration has a job to do, as well, and that job is to get this economy back on its feet. That’s my job. (Applause.) 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. (Applause.) My job is to solve problems, not to stand on the sidelines and harp and gripe. (Applause.)

The AP:

With four simple words — “Give it to me!” — President Barack Obama took possession of the economy.

For months, the White House and Obama’s economic team have laid the economic crisis at the feet of President George W. Bush. But there comes a point in a presidency when inheritance becomes ownership. Obama made that pivot Tuesday in Michigan, the state suffering the worst unemployment in the nation.

He most definitely has taken possession of the economy. But the “pivot” point was just a figment of our imagination seeing as how he is STILL blaming everyone else for the economy:

Throughout this year, Obama has blamed Bush and the criticism has intensified this month.

On Aug. 9 in Bush’s home state of Texas, Obama said the ex-president’s “disastrous” policies had damaged the economy, noting that Bush inherited budget surpluses and ended his time in the White House with a budget deficit.

During a fundraiser with Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) in Seattle this week, Obama said, “Eighteen months ago I took office after nearly a decade of economic policies that had given us sluggish growth, sluggish job growth, falling incomes, falling wages and a record deficit.”

Over a year and half after taking office, and a year in which he supposedly took possession of this economy, he is still blaming Bush. Take a look below, paying special attention to the time period after July 2009 (the date he said “give it to me”..26 seconds in) up to the present day.

Whose fault is this?

He and his party have control of both houses, he has run this economy into the ground, and he has the audacity to blame Bush?

Won’t last for long:

In a new poll by the Associated Press, just 41 percent of Americans approve of the president’s performance on the economy, his lowest in that poll yet. Sixty-one percent say the economy has gotten worse or stayed the same during the president’s term.

…a new Rasmussen poll shows that voters are just as likely to blame President Barack Obama for the nation’s current economic woes as they are to blame his predecessor, President George W. Bush.

Obama faces the most skepticism from Independents, who blame him by a margin of 52 percent to 44 percent margin.

Rasmussen asked 1,000 likely voters whether the actions of President Bush or President Obama were mostly responsible for the nation’s current economic problems. Forty-eight percent said the blame lies with the current president, while 47 percent blamed his predecessor.

Only 4 percent of voters said that they were not sure who bears the most blame.

We know who bears the blame. The whiny sorry excuse for a leader can point his finger at anyone he wishes but the American population can see through it.

What an embarrassment this man is.
