Obama: Washington Took Its Eye Off Economy – With “Distractions” and “Phony Scandals” (Video)
The man is shameless…
Barack Obama blamed his lack of focus on the economy today on “endless distractions” and “phony scandals.”
And the dopes in the audience bought it.
President Barack Obama said Wednesday that Washington has “taken its eye off the ball” as he pledged a stronger second-term commitment to tackling the economic woes that strain many in the middle class nearly five years after the country plunged into a recession.
Obama returned to the college campus where he gave his first major economic address as a U.S. senator, and he chided Congress for being less concerned about the economy and more about “an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals.”
“I am here to say this needs to stop,” Obama said in a speech at Knox College. “This moment does not require short term thinking. It does not require having the same old stale debates.”
Here is more on the phony IRS scandal:

Then, there are all of the Benghazi lies.
