President Lip Sync Blames It on The Rain

"We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again," Obama told a crowd in Decorah, Iowa. "But over the last six months we've had a run of bad luck." Obama listed three events overseas -- the Arab Spring uprisings, the tsunami in Japan, and the European debt crises -- which set the economy back.

"All those things have been headwinds for our economy," Obama said. "Now, those are things that we can't completely control. The question is, how do we manage these challenging times and do the right things when it comes to those things that we cancontrol?"
This reminds me of an old song by an infamous lip syncing duo:

Gotta blame it on something
Gotta blame it on something

Blame it on the rain (rain)
Blame it on the stars (stars)
Whatever you do don't put the blame on you
Blame it on the rain yeah yeah
You can blame it on the rain

At this point, is Obama anything more than a lame duck lip sync president who's simply going though the motions till his time runs out?


  1. He's actually putting some of the blame on the tsunami? This man has no shame. I'm surprised he hasn't blamed the alignment of the planets yet. Oh did I give him another idea?

  2. Weren't Hurricane Katrina and 9/11 out of our control too? I don't remember the libs cutting Bush any slack. To this day they like to talk about the "surplus" Clinton left in 2000 and how much debt we were in in 2008, as if nothing at all had happened in eight years except for Bush being president.
