Remember when President Obama blamed the poor economy under his stewardship on a run of “bad luck,” including the tsunami in Japan? Think about it: 30,000 people die in a once-in-a-lifetime natural disaster, and our narcissist in chief views the incident primarily through the lens of how it affects him. Simply unbelievable.
And speaking of bad luck, George W. Bush had a little of his own (an inherited recession, 9/11, Katrina), but I never heard him complain about it–nor should he have. He was hired to do a job, not to moan about why he couldn’t do his job.
Recently I mentioned how the current president is nothing like Harry Truman, who famously quipped, “The buck stops here.” Another saying of Truman comes to mind now: “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.” It’s definitely much too hot for Obama right now, but we’re the ones experiencing the bad luck … because we’re stuck with him.
