Stop Whining, Already!

Is the White House going to spend the next 3.5 years blaming everything on George W. Bush? Here's Gibbs at yesterday's briefing responding to a question about Bush's comments the night before:

The bottom line, Gibbs concluded, is "I think we've had a debate about individual policies. We had that debate in particular -- we kept score last November and we won."

"President Obama inherited an economic catastrophe: massive unemployment, a huge deficit, insolvent banks, car companies that were being handed billions of dollars," Gibbs said.

"President Obama believes that the free market is what governs our economic principles and looks forward to getting out of the business of being involved in banks or in auto companies," he said.

We won! Good grief.

"President Obama inherited...." For crying out loud, every administration inherits problems. It's not a perfect world Put on your big boy pants and quit whining. Quit nationalizing banks, health care and car companies. If Obama really believes "the free market is what governs our economic principles" then get out of it! Let the market do what the market DOES.

Enough with the whining already. Enough with the blame. It's childish. It's not leadership.
