It's Been Two Years Since Obama Said He Welcomed The "Responsibility" To "Get This Economy Back On Its Feet"
WASHINGTON, July 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the Republican National Committee:
Obama: "My administration has a job to do as well. That job is to get this economy back on its feet. That's my job, and it's a job I gladly accept. I love these folks who helped get us in this mess and then suddenly say, 'Well this is Obama's economy.' That's fine. Give it to me. My job is to solve problems, not to stand on the sidelines and carp and gripe. So, I welcome the job. I want the responsibility."(President Barack Obama, Remarks At Macomb Community College, Warren, MI, 7/14/09)
