President Obama Whines & Blames in Speech From Oval Office

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

President Obama made only his second speech from the Oval Office of the White House tonight, but it was his 587th since taking office.  This one was supposed to be about the historic milestone of the end of combat operations in Iraq. However, this withdrawal date had nothing to do with Barack Obama’s campaign pledges or his promises on his inauguration. The end date is all the work of former President George W. Bush, who pushed for the “Iraq State of Forces Agreement” back in November 2007, and said U.S. forces will be out of Iraq no later than December 31, 2011.

Let’s remember that Senator Obama was strongly against the Iraq War and stated his opposition to the troop surge, even predicting it’s failure. Since becoming president, Obama has never acknowledged his mistake, or praised President Bush for it’s success. On Tuesday night Obama used this as a means of deriding Bush’s success and turning his speech into his boilerplate blame game on the economy.

“Unfortunately, over the last decade, we’ve not done what’s necessary to shore up the foundations of our own prosperity. We spent a trillion dollars at war, often financed by borrowing from overseas. This, in turn, has short-changed investments in our own people, and contributed to record deficits. For too long, we have put off tough decisions on everything from our manufacturing base to our energy policy to education reform. As a result, too many middle-class families find themselves working harder for less, while our nation’s long-term competitiveness is put at risk.”

So you’d think that the end of this combat mission will mean all that money will be turned into boosting our prosperity. Wrong. Obama will now use those billions to fund the expanded war in Afghanistan.

The end of combat speech morphed into another campaign pitch on the state of the U.S. economy and how tough it is out there. As if Barack and Michelle have a clue of how the average American is struggling, while eating Lobster at the finest restaurants and estates in Maine and Martha’s Vineyard.

“Our most urgent task is to restore our economy, and put the millions of Americans who have lost their jobs back to work. To strengthen our middle class, we must give all our children the education they deserve, and all our workers the skills that they need to compete in a global economy. We must jumpstart industries that create jobs, and end our dependence on foreign oil. We must unleash the innovation that allows new products to roll off our assembly lines, and nurture the ideas that spring from our entrepreneurs. This will be difficult. But in the days to come, it must be our central mission as a people, and my central responsibility as President.”

Some inspiring and momentous speeches have been made from the Oval Office by great Presidents. Once again President Obama fails in every category, especially as Commander-In-Chief.
