Poor Widdle Barry’s Bad Wuck

Barack Obama says that bad luck, not his own godawful policies, are responsible for the renewed slowdown of the economy. The recession, he said, was ending before the bad luck hit.  Oh, woe is he. Poor Eeyore. “Obama listed three events overseas — the Arab Spring uprisings, the tsunami in Japan, and the European debt crises — which set the economy back,” according to Byron York.

Well, the Arab Spring began on Dec. 18 of last year. Earlier that month, the U.S. unemployment rate was reported at 9.4 percent. When Barack Obama took over as president in January 2009, that rate was at 7.6 percent, and his advisors said that passing his vaunted “stimulus” package would keep it below 8 percent.

Some recovery he had going, now wasn’t it?
