Obama Blames Terrible Economy on "Big, Messy, Tough Democracy"

Posted: Aug 04, 2011 1:33 PM

President Obama gave a less than impressive speech during his 50th birthday celebration in Chicago last night.

Bush slam: Check, starts at :35

Pulls Victim Card: Check, starts at :40

American Democracy slam (technically, we are a Republic Mr. President): Check, starts at :57

"Being the President is hard": Check, starts at 1:22

Partisanship is bad: Check, starts 1:46

"When I said 'change we can believe in, I didn't say change we can believe in today. I didn't say 'change we can believe in tomorrow,' not 'change we can believe in next week.' We knew this was going to take time. Because we've got this big, messy, tough democracy."

After slamming democracy in America, Obama tried to save himself by saying conflicting ideas are a great thing, but if he thinks conflicting ideas are a great thing, why is he always complaining about them?

FLASHBACK: Gee, sure would be easier to President of China

Mr. Obama has told people that it would be so much easier to be the president of China. As one official put it, “No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.”

Also, Obama mentions in the above clip that he wants to build electric cars in America and ship them all across the world. That's not going to happen considering the Obama Administration pushed out over 600 new regulations in July alone.
