Michelle Obama tells a whopper, must be an Obama trademark:

First lady: President ‘didn’t point fingers, didn’t place blame’
By Justin Sink

First lady Michelle Obama said Wednesday that President Obama did not look to blame others for the challenges he faced as president, an apparent rebuke of Republican accusations that the White House continues to point the finger at President George W. Bush for the lagging economy.

“See, but your president, he didn’t point fingers,” Michelle Obama said at a campaign fundraiser in New York. “He didn’t place blame. Instead, he got to work, because he was thinking about folks like my dad and like his grandmother. See, and that’s why he cut taxes for small businesses and for working families, because he believes that in America, teachers and firefighters should not pay higher tax rates than millionaires and billionaires.”

During Thursday’s presidential debates, the candidates were asked to respond to a questioner who said he was reluctant to support Mitt Romney because of Bush’s record.

Obama did say that he thought “it’s important to tell you that we did come in during some tough times,” but then pivoted to a defense of his economic record.
