Jimmy Carter, when the American economy went South, blamed it on the American people and said we were in a malaise to cover for his own incompetence.He was shifiting the blame.
Now, another President is attempting to cover for his own incompetence by blaming it on the American people and the new malaise is "a little soft."
President Barack Obama:
"This is a great great country that had gotten a little soft and we didn’t have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades,”
Jonah Goldberg has the best comment on Obama's attempt to shift the blame from himself to the American people:
Seriously, in 2008 we elected a community organizer, state senator, college instructor first term senator over a guy who spent five years in a Vietnamese prison. And now he’s lecturing us about how America’s gone “soft”? Really?
No, American just needs a real leader !
