My Grandmother: Stop Whining and Fix the Problem

Power Line is asking: WHY IS THIS MAN WHINING?
Why is this man whining, blaming the federal budget deficit on George Bush three-and-a-half years into his term in office? He must think we’re really, really stupid.

Virtually upon entering office, Obama signed off on enormous spending programs including the monumental stimulus bill. This included a $410 billion omnibus spending bill that Bush had refused to sign before he left office involving mind-boggling expansions of federal agencies such as the EEOC. More here and here.
The putative importance of deficit spending has been a doctrinal keystone of the administration. It gave us the trillion dollar stimulus program that held unemployment below 8 percent. At least it gave us the trillion dollar stimulus program. Remember, Mr. President, you didn’t want to let a crisis go to waste?
Obama’s blaming his predecessor for his own record as his first time comes to a close is incredibly unbecoming. Listen to his tone in the video. The whining makes him unlikable. But it is not just the tone that is off.

Why not stop whining and fix the problem? The problem is the economy and the lack of jobs. Obama has skipped multiple opportunities to create more jobs. He failed to approve the XL-Pipeline, he refuses to embrace fossil fuel extraction, funds failed job loosing alternative energy projects, and insists on raising energy costs of non-competitive levels. He has an opportunity to fix the jobs problem, but refuses to do so, whining that the problem left by a previous administration is just too hard. He would not last ten minutes in my Grandmother garden, no whining allowed.
