‘The Buck Stops Over There’: Obama’s Blame Game

The words of Barack Obama from 2009 will serve as a good contrast to the audio below:

“Ultimately I’m responsible, I’m the president of the United States,” he said. “We’ve got a big mess that we’re having to clean up. Nobody here drafted those contracts.

The buck stops with me. And my goal is to make sure that we never put ourselves in this kind of position again.”
