Krauthammer: Obama 'pretending he just stumbled upon' economy

“This is his economy and he’s pretending he just stumbled upon it,” Krauthammer said on Fox News’s “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

Krauthammer stated that Obama acts as if the struggling economy was former President George W. Bush’s fault, or even former President Dwight Eisenhower's.

“This is a result of the policies [Obama] instituted,” Krauthammer said. “He gave us the biggest stimulus in the history of the Milky Way, and he said it would jump start the economy.”

Krauthammer said the country’s economic recovery has been the slowest since World War II, and said the median income of middle-class Americas has declined 5 percent during Obama’s presidency.

“So who’s responsible for that?” Krauthammer said. “Those were his policies. He talks about this in the abstract and he actually got away with it in a way that I find absolutely astonishing, it’s magical.”
