It just doesn't get any better stated than this:
When the President took office, not only had the car gone into a ditch, the car had flipped over and was rolling down a steep embankment. We, the American people, were in the back seat, and the Bush Administration had removed all the seat belts, so we were all flying around the interior of this car as it was rolling and flipping and careening down this steep embankment, headed to a 2,000 foot cliff. And at the bottom of that cliff were jagged rocks. And alligators.
Now, at noon on January 20th, 2009, as the car was careening toward the cliff, George W. Bush jumped out of the car.
President Obama somehow managed to dive in through the window, take the wheel and get control of the thing just inches before it went over the precipice. Then, he and Congress starting pushing this wreck back up the embankment. Now you can’t push a car up an embankment as fast as it careens down the embankment, especially if some people are trying to push against you. But we got it going in the right direction. And slowly we’ve gotten ourselves up the embankment, out of the ditch and onto the shoulder of the road.
There. That’s what happened. Al Franken
You don't believe it?
The Democrats actually managed to shrink the deficit -- in spite of the all the Republican "help" (help 1--most recent), (help 2), (help 3), and on and on and on, from the very beginning of the current administration.
The GOP is like a criminally reckless 16-year-old complaining that he's abused because his parents didn't have enough in savings to buy him a car--all while conveniently ignoring the fact that all the money was spent bailing him out of jail.
