In his weekly address, President Barack Obama blamed the economic problems on "bad decisions."Just so long as somebody else gets blamed, again...
"[T]his week, we also received the first estimate of America’s economic growth over the last few months. And it reminded us that bad decisions in Washington can get in the way of our economic progress," said Obama, presumably referring to the uptick in unemployment from 7.8 percent to 7.9 percent and the news that the economy contracted in the final quarter of last year.
The president did not name which decisions were "bad," and who specifically was to blame for those "bad decisions." But he did blame Washington.
