OBAMA: I inherited a trillion-dollar deficit. We had a surplus. They turned it into a deficit, built in a structural deficit that extends for decades. This notion that somehow we caused the deficits is just wrong. They baked all this stuff into the cake with those tax cuts and a prescription drug plan that they didn’t pay for, and the war. So all this stuff baked in with all the interest payments for it. It’s like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all that stuff. And then just as you’re sitting down, they leave, and accuse you of running up the tab.
RUSH: Yeah, who is it going to six parties a night that we’re paying for? Who is it palling around with all these celebrities? Everybody else is picking up the tab. James Carville is gonna have a new slogan, it won’t be long. “The economy isn’t improving, stupid.” You can’t talk about the economy improving. The economy isn’t improving, stupid.
