Debbie Wasserman Schultz claims that Rick Perry doesn’t deserve credit for creating jobs in Texas
Barack Obama is still refusing to accept any responsibility for the continued economic woes of the United States even in light of the fact that everything he has tried to do has not only failed but has deepened the recession. He is crossing the country on the campaign trail trying to blame the Republicans and George Bush for the fact that the United States economy is still in a funk.
One state which has felt the effects of this recession less than most is Texas; 40% of all the jobs created in the country since 2009 have been created in Texas alone. Now that Rick Perry has entered the presidential race the Obama regime is quickly moving to discredit Rick Perry while also trying to take credit themselves for the success of Texas.
Here is what DNC Chair, the “charming” woman with the “dazzling smile” Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had to say after Rick Perry made his candidacy official:
It’s extremely difficult for him to deserve credit for that job creation when you have rising gas prices that created oil jobs that he had nothing to do with; when you have military spending as a result of two wars that created military jobs that he had nothing to do with; when you have the Recovery Act championed by President Obama that created jobs in Texas that he had nothing to do with, so it is way overblown to suggest that job creation in Texas is squarely on the shoulders of his policies.
First, why isn’t Barack Obama taking credit for the rising gas prices since his drilling moratorium and energy policies have led to what is now being credited as a job creator in Texas? And why isn’t he touting his escalation of the war in Afghanistan, as well as his military involvement in Libya as jobs creators? And then there is is stimulus plan which stimulated nothing and turned out to be a giant slush fund to his donors, except apparently in Texas where it was successful if the charming one is to be believed.
So to sum up the official Democrat position: Barack Obama deserves no blame across the country for today’s economic problems because it is all George Bush’s fault, yet he deserves all the credit for the turn around in Texas. Is it any wonder why his approval rating is now under 40% and nobody takes him seriously anymore?
Barack Obama wants to have it both ways but I think the American people see through this.
