In the update to my post on the president’s latest plaint about the problems he inherited, I quoted something President Obama said two years ago:
My administration has a job to do as well. That job is to get this economy back on its feet. That’s my job, and it’s a job I gladly accept. I love these folks who helped get us in this mess and then suddenly say, ‘Well this is Obama’s economy.’ That’s fine. Give it to me.My job is to solve problems, not to stand on the sidelines and carp and gripe. So, I welcome the job. I want the responsibility.
Emphasis added. If back then, he recognized his job was to solve problems, to get the economy back on its feet, why then do we, as have to wait for a couple weeks to learn about his proposals to put people back to work?
You’d think a guy who saw that problem-solving was part of his job description, would have a proposal to create jobs near at hand.
