Anyone doubt for a second in four years we’ll still be hearing the same thing?
Via Fox News:
President Obama opened his first White House press conference in eight months Wednesday with a familiar refrain: Blame Bush.
Before diving into an explanation of how he wants to avoid the so-called “fiscal cliff” — and imploring House Republicans to approve legislation to raise taxes on high earners — Obama sought to once again remind Americans that he took office, four years ago, during a recession that started with the George W. Bush administration.
“Right now our economy is still recovering from a very deep and damaging crisis, so our top priority has to be jobs and growth,” Obama said. “We’ve got to build on the progress that we’ve made.”
The reminder was a refrain on the campaign trail, and apparently will be part of the rhetorical repertoire going forward in a second term.
