Believable statement?

Wayne Swan in parliament yesterday, defending his tax cuts this way:

"We anticipated, in our Budget, what is now occurring – we were prepared for the challenges now unfolding, and we got it right."

Tim Colebatch writes:

Hang on, Wayne. Wasn't the issue that you'd promised the tax cuts in October, and felt bound to deliver them? If you knew in October that within months, the economy would be going backwards per head, why didn't you warn us?
