Since being sworn in, Obama has invited comparison to the prior administration in justifying his decisions.
Yesterday, "President Obama rebuffed reporters' attempts to ask about Afghanistan . . . focusing instead on what he described as his administration's biggest challenge: Jobs. "I will not rest until businesses are investing again and businesses are hiring again and people have work again," Obama said after meeting with his Cabinet. Obama said the stimulus bill and other administration actions are helping the economy grow out of the recession, and prevented it from sliding "into a depression." He added: "Now, this is going to be a challenging task."
Obama whining "it's challenging" reminds me of Bush whining "it's hard."
