From the Politico:
Appearing at a rally at Northeastern University here, President Obama said out-of-power Republicans had taken advantage of the economic crisis to make Democrats the political fall guy during difficult times....
Obama offered his own analysis of the voters’ anger.
“There were going to be some who stood on the sidelines, who were protectors of the big banks, protectors of the big insurance companies, protectors of the big drug companies who were going to say, ‘You know what, we can take advantage of this crisis,’” he told the crowd.
Perhaps my memory fails me in my dotage, but I recall only one person saying his side should take advantage of the economic crisis. Rahm Someone, can't quite bring him to mind; he's been awfully quiet recently.
Wasn't it something about not allowing a good crisis to go to waste?
But I must be mistaken. Surely the President of the United States would never bear false witness against his political opponents!
Not even while staring straight in the face of electoral humiliation in "Massachusettes," America's fifty-seventh state.
