The Wall Street Journal is shocked, shocked! that Democrats dare to blame Bush for the crash. What did they expect? They cheered on Bush for eight years, championing his unconstitutional wars that bled us dry, turned the world against us, and destroyed our livelihood and hundreds of thousands of innocent lives. They cheered the war. They cheered war profiteers like Richer Perle, and powermongers and abusers like Rumsfeld, Cheney, and even convicted felon Lewis Libby. They cheered the Middle East policy that convicted liar Elliott Abrams ran from the NSC. When the bloom came off the rose, they then mocked Ron Paul when he told the ugly truth about the Bush years, when Dr. Paul knows more about economics in his little finger than all their editorial interns and happy-talkers ever learned in their lives.
And now they blame — Obama?
Look, Obama is a socialist and he’ll continue ruining the country, no argument there. But with his high crimes, misdemeanors, and disasters Bush not only handed Obama his victory on a silver platter, but he also handed the country all the makings of socialism that Obama is now perpetuating and solidifying. Obama is undoubtedly grateful to Bush, even as he trashes him.
We can blame the socialists for being socialists, but don’t blame them for blaming Bush: he deserves it. And remember, the neocons will never, ever apologize. Never.
“Americans have welcomed the Obama era in the same spirit of hope the President campaigned on. But after five weeks in office, it’s become clear that Mr. Obama’s policies are slowing, if not stopping, what would otherwise be the normal process of economic recovery….The Democrats who now run Washington don’t want to hear this, because they benefit from blaming all bad economic news on President Bush.”
