On MSNBC just now, Chuck Todd frames the “blame Obama” narrative while interviewing Obama economic adviser Austan Goolsbee:
“You guys [Team Obama] own the economy at 12 o’clock eastern time today, correct? When Senator Obama announces his Treasury Secretary, announces the Larry Summers position. It is now Barack Obama’s responsibility on the economy, is that not correct?”
No it’s not, Chuck! Just remarkable. The establishment press is gearing up to blame Barack Obama for everything. Yep. The guy who hasn’t even been inaugurated yet is responsible for doing President Bush’s job, and also taking the heat for any and all of President Bush’s mistakes. Once again, President Bush getting away with murder.
