I'm waiting for the New York Times to call this "A show of strong leadership":
Obama Blames Europe, Japan for US Economic Woes
Because the program is sound - don't I ever hear you question the program!! - it must be sinister outside forces that are causing the moribund US economy to go flatline.
At what point will he start blaming the Jews? It is, after all, a great liberal tradition...
Reuters claims that this finger-pointing will be a key part of his re-election strategy:
... part of his pitch will include steering attention to outside forces as causes for economic woes at home.
And given the fact that they likely have more power to effect events in the United States than the Republican party does, Obama will soon find out that his childish, churlish remarks will have consequences.
And alas, we will all pay for his foolishness..
