|"I inherited a mess. None of this is my fault"|
And the truth is, he actually did inherit a mess. But after almost four years in office he hasn't fixed any problems he told us he would fix. In fact, every single problem he inherited, he made much worse.
And this was despite him having two full years of super majorities in both houses of Congress. For his first two years in office, the President got everything he wanted from Congress.
Every plan he proposed was implement, exactly as he wanted it to be.
When he campaigned for election four years ago he made some pretty bold promises. Unfortunately, the only promise he kept was the one to legalize gays in the military. Every other promise was broken or not even addressed.
But President Obama is right. He did inherit a mess. But he made that mess worse.
This is the record he will have to defend when he campaigns for reelection.
Lets take a look at what he inherited, and what we have today.
