DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz: ‘We Own the Economy’

Posted by on Jun 01, 2012 at 3:14 pm

This was June 2011.

We own the economy. We own the beginning of the turnaround and we want to make sure that we continue that pace of recovery, not go back to the policies of the past under the Bush administration that put us in the ditch in the first place,” Wasserman Schultz told Mike Allen at POLITICO’s ‘Playbook Breakfast.’

The economy, she said, “has turned around” since President Obama took office, with steady job growth evident even if the pace leaves something to be desired.

They’re whistling another tune today.

In its first reaction to this morning’s worse-than-expected jobs report, the White House stressed that the nation is still fighting back from the recession and that the “problems in the job market were long in the making and will not be solved overnight.”

“There is much more work that remains to be done to repair the damage caused by the financial crisis and deep recession that began at the end of 2007,” Alan Krueger, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, writes in a White House blog.

So last year they owned it, now it’s Bush’s fault again. Thanks for clearing that up.

Oddly, no mention of the dreadful employment number from Obama’s attack poodle.

Nancy Pelosi, meanwhile, blamed Obama’s catastrophe on GOP obstruction. Sure, it’s their fault.

    Soooooo. This thing we’re in for four and a half years now is still Bush’s fault, and despite what we were told in 2010 (Biden) and in June 2011 (Whatshernamesgtschultz) we peasants are supposed to accept our lot. And give obama four more years….Without a budget I suppose.

    Yes Ms Wasserman-Shultz you dems certainly do own this lousy economy, as bad as it is. Now why don’t you just sit down, shut up, and let the grown ups handle it for the next four years. ABO 2012

    Slutbag needs a new job. I am sick of her rhetoric, blaming and lies. All she can talk about is how America was “bleeding jobs” GUESS WHAT–It STILL IS. She wants to blame Bush, but she neglects to comment how the HOUSE and SENATE were controlled by Dems after the 06 election–THAT is when it all started going to H3LL in a hand basket!
