“It was hard for me to believe that you were entirely serious about that socialist question,” he told reporters, who had interviewed the president aboard Air Force One on Friday.
“I did think it might be useful to point out that it wasn’t under me that we started buying a bunch of shares of banks. It wasn’t on my watch. And it wasn’t on my watch that we passed a massive new entitlement -– the prescription drug plan — without a source of funding. And so I think it’s important just to note when you start hearing folks throw these words around that we’ve actually been operating in a way that has been entirely consistent with free-market principles and that some of the same folks who are throwing the word ’socialist’ around can’t say the same.”
So, thanks for giving him an excuse. It’s nice to know that the country’s most expensive screwup ever, which was orchestrated and passed by Democrats, will have a little R-shaped apostrophe next to it. That said, Obama sure loves pointing fingers at everyone else, doesn’t he?
