So Much For Hope & Change

At some point, once you win, you have to produce results.

And that's going to be a tough one for Mr. I'm-The-One-I've-Been-Waiting-For.

Two headlines should send a message to him that the rah-rah and bluster may not work this time around.

First, from Reuters, October 7, 2008 (when George W. Bush owned the economy):

"Obama: U.S. in worst crisis since Depression: Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said on Tuesday that the United States is in the worst financial crisis of the Great Depression as he opened a debate with Republican rival John McCain."

Yesterday, The American Spectator:

 "The Worst Economic Recovery Since the Great Depression: The record of President Obama's first three years in office is in, and nothing that happens now can go back and change that. What that record shows is that President Obama, with his throwback, old-fashioned, 1970s Keynesian economics, has put America through the worst recovery from a recession since the Great Depression."

Obama wanted to own the economy.  Now he does just that.  And no whining about George W. Bush is going to mitigate that fact.
