First, he throws down the usual lies about inheriting a financial crisis from the previous administration, then says this to help justify his multi-trillion dollar spending spree:
"I had one side of the aisle just sit on the sidelines as the crisis unfolded."Aw, bummer that the GOP didn't figure it was wise to participate in that spending spree! Now he has to own it all by himself.
Anyway, later in that same day, he said the opposite:
"After they drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want the keys back. (Laughter.) No! (Laughter and applause.) You can't drive! (Applause.) We don't want to have to go back into the ditch! We just got the car out! (Applause.) We just got the car out! (Laughter.)"Um...so which is it? If you're Barack Obama, it's both. Depending on the audience, of course. That's the most important consideration in all of his speeches.
There's my two cents.
