I wonder if Abraham Lincoln ever sat around blaming the Civil War on Buchanan because of the high level of tension he inherited from the previous administration.
No wait, Lincoln was actually a leader who was busy saving a country…
Biden and Obama however, have plenty of free time to dream up excuses as to why they are abject failures.
From CNS News:
At a campaign event in Iowa on Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden blamed the continuing high level of unemployment in the United States on what he called “this God-awful recession we’ve inherited.”
According to the non-partisan National Bureau of Economic Research, the last recession began in December 2007 and ended in June 2009—just five months into President Barack Obama’s term in office.
In the 33 months since the recession ended, according to the NBER, the U.S. economy has been in a period of expansion. One of the current members of the NBER committee that determines when recessions begin and end is Christina Romer, who formerly served as chairperson of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers.
