GALESBURG, Ill. — President Barack Obama said Wednesday that Washington has "taken its eye off the ball" as he pledged a stronger second-term commitment to tackling the economic woes that strain many in the middle class nearly five years after the country plunged into a recession.
Obama returned to the college campus where he gave his first major economic address as a U.S. senator, and he chided Congress for being less concerned about the economy and more about "an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals."Phony scandals like the IRS targeting the president's enemies or the ATF funneling guns into Mexico to help bolster calls for gun control? Or did you mean the Benghazi debacle where a US Ambassador and three other Americans were left to die at the hands of terrorists because, well, quite frankly we don't know. Boy, if those evil Republicans would only stop throwing up these distractions, we'd be able to turn the economy right around, right Barack?
I mean, it's not like you haven't spend 100X as much air time talking about how EEEEEVIL and RACIST the United States is because George Zimmerman was acquited of second degree murder as you have Benghazy. You spent more time claiming that it could have been you 35 years ago than explaining what, exactly, the ATF was doing letting firearms walk into Mexico. Your "Justice" Department devoted more of its time to rallying mobs in Florida than it did explaining why the IRS was targeting Tea Party groups. And your Attorney General was more interested in speaking out against "Stand Your Ground" laws than finding terrorists in Boston.
Yeah, we know, it's someone else's fault - but at least you're not still blaming Bush!
That is all.
