Eugene Robinson, on why it’s so horribly, horribly unfair to blame President Obama for the fact that his policies were and are the economic/fiscal equivalent of pyaemia*:
Now, maybe somebody could have come in and done all of that and also got the economy revved up and roaring but I think it is more probable that this is a different kind of recession that — and I wonder who could have done better?
The last time I checked, Mr. Robinson, I believe that we were promised that Barack Obama himself would do better. After all, “…we didn’t elect Obama to be an expedient president. We elected him to be a great one.”
At least, so said… Eugene Robinson.

*PRO-TIP: when your defense of a Democrat/liberal causes people on MSNBC to laugh in your face, it isn’t a very good argument. Even if it’s on Morning Joe.
