Stuff My Government Says: Obama Comes Up With a New Talking Point to Excuse the Crappy Economy

Blaming Bush was getting President Obama nowhere in the polls, so now he is blaming Mother Nature and the Arab Spring for economic conditions that his own policies have helped create and make worse. Everyone and everything gets a piece of the blame from Obama, but himself and his own policies. Roll the video tape.

Update: One more talking point to blame on the tsunami: S&P has downgraded the US credit rating.
