Re: “Obama rejects political ad criticism” (TNT, 5-1).
Congressional Republicans want Obama to “own” this economic situation that they created and have been fighting all reasonable solutions to fix.
But they don’t want him to own stopping the fall of the economy into a depression or saving the auto industry and keeping those thousands of jobs and true trickle-down jobs associated with that industry. Nor do they want him to own the climb out of the recession.
And they especially don’t want him to own finding and getting Osama bin Laden after they let him get away. Nor do they want to own putting us in Iraq for no rational reason, getting 4,000-plus Americans killed; 50,000 seriously wounded; wasting billions of dollars; or the 1 million-plus Iraqis dead, missing and displaced.
