Obama on the recession: I’m just forgetful or something; Enter #ObamaForgot

No. Seriously. He said that. At a Seattle fundraiser, to people whose funds are very likely affected by the recession.

D’oh!

He remembers how he singlehandedly killed bin Laden with his eyes closed while standing on one leg but forgets about the crippling recession? Pretty neat trick, that.

No way were people gonna let him slip away unscathed:

Pretty easy to forget the magnitude of the recession on Air Force 1, on the golf course, on the Hollywood fundraising circuit…
