Dog bites man - Actual Reuters headline: "Obama says he inherited economic problems." I think this is the "F9" key on their keyboards.

Whatever happened to this bravado?: "Obama: It's my economy? Fine, give it to me." "My job is to solve problems, not stand on the sidelines and carp and gripe." Still waiting on that budget plan, big guy.

Let's not forget this interview from February 2009: "I will be held accountable" [on the economy.] Today? Well, there were these earthquakes and stuff.

Ah, yes. When the truth is incontrovertible, go after the rhetoric.

He inherited an AAA rating and 5.8% unemployment. Both problems have been fixed.

Just imagine how bad the financial news would be right now if Boehner had only gotten 97% of what he wanted.

You know, Rick Perry inherited an economy from George Bush, too.

It's what you do with your inheritance that matters.

Rick Perry was so smart to have started those mideast wars that sharply drove up oil and natural gas profits.

The other U.S. Governors are lazy and stupid for not doing the same with their states' equally vast reserves. No wonder Rick wants to secede; those 49 losers are dragging him down.
