Obama Presser, Condensed Version

Planet Moron covered it for us. Excerpt (you really should read it all):

I was in Elkhart today where things are terrible. Really terrible. In fact, it’s terrible all across America.

And while no one denies that things are terrible, I’m going to accuse my opponents of that anyway.

And also of just wanting to give tax cuts to the rich, even though no one is suggesting that either.

None of you will think to ask me about that, I’m sure.

My stimulus plan gives away billions of dollars we don’t have.

Everyone who is in line to get some of those billions supports the plan, whether it’s big business, unions, other big businesses, or other unions.

By the way, I inherited all this, so none of it’s my fault.

Now I’ll take your softball questions.

Actually I've had a few conservative aquaintances say to me that this "crisis" isn't a crisis, and that things were worse only X years ago, by far. So I don't know if elected Republicans are saying this so much, but some of their constituents certainly are.
