On the plus side, gas prices are still down so throwing him under the bus is a cost effective solution.
Let's face it, Obama has been a HORRIBLE President. Under Obama debt, income inequality and poverty has increased. If you listen to the Democrats, the economy is in worse shape than it ever has been.
We're in economic Armageddon.
In a speech in Washington on Friday, Hillary Clinton repeatedly criticized economic and social conditions under President Obama, barely mentioning the accomplishments of the man who appointed her secretary of State. Clinton's address, at the New America Foundation, was a broad indictment of the country's current leadership, with exactly one -- one -- note of praise for the Democratic president Clinton has called her partner and friend.
"For too many families in America today, that isn't the way it works. Instead of getting ahead, they're finding it harder and harder than ever to get their footing in our changing economy. The dream of upward mobility that made this country a model for the world feels further and further out of reach."
Millions of Americans are "frustrated, even angry" about today's economy, Clinton said. Falling into poverty is a constant threat, and upward mobility is almost impossible. "Forget about getting rich," Clinton told the audience, "I'm talking about getting into the middle class and staying there."
While productivity is up, Clinton noted, "wages have stagnated." "Americans are working harder, contributing more than ever … and yet many are still barely getting by."
Amid the "daily struggles of millions and millions of Americans," women face particular difficulties, Clinton continued. A woman struggling to achieve "doesn't just face ceilings on her aspirations; sometimes it feels as if the floor has collapsed beneath her."

16 years of Bush and Obama have been horrible for America. The problem is you have Democrats who blindly follow Obama and thinks he walks on water so you never get an honest assessment on how bad his policies has hurt this Country. It was the same way with Bush and the Republicans.
This is just the truth and if Obama did this great job, Hillary and Bernie would be running on Obama's record...
The Democratic front-runner offered no apologies for her foreign policy stances, and invokes Obama to lend credence to her record.
Presumed Presidential Candidate Makes Clear She Won't Be Running for de Facto Third Obama Term
Hillary Clinton has begun distancing herself from President Barack Obama, suggesting that she would do more to woo Republicans and take a more assertive stance toward global crises, while sounding more downbeat than her former boss about the U.S. economic recovery.
People are "really, really nervous" about their future, Mrs. Clinton said at an event in Colorado last week that included hints of her emerging strategy to convey that she would be more effective in the pursuit of Democratic policy goals than Mr. Obama has been during his time in office.
Laying out a foreign policy vision ahead of a possible run for president, Hillary Rodham Clinton made her most aggressive effort yet to distinguish herself from her former boss, President Barack Obama, rebuking his cautious approach to global crises and saying the U.S. doctrine has to go beyond "don't do stupid stuff."
"Great nations need organizing principles, and 'don't do stupid stuff' is not an organizing principle," Clinton said in a weekend magazine interview, referring to a version of the phrase Obama and his advisers have used privately to describe his approach to foreign policy.
..I can’t sit here and tell you that if we had done what I and General Petraeus and Secretary Panetta and others had recommended we would have made more progress on the ground. I obviously thought so at the time. … What the Pentagon has been doing hasn’t worked. …” – Hillary Clinton on “MTP Daily”
