“Give It To Me”

- July 14, 2011

It’s Been Two Years Since Obama Said He Welcomed The 
“Responsibility” To “Get This Economy Back On Its Feet” 

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)
