Milking the blame Bush theme is reaching new heights. After the Obama/ Coakley rally, a few people seem to think her doing bad in the polls is Bush’s fault.
From Hotline On Call:
As audience members streamed out of Pres. Obama's rally on behalf of AG Martha Coakley(D) here tonight, the consensus was that the fault for Coakley's now-floundering MA SEN bid lies with one person -- George W. Bush.
"People are upset because there's so many problems," Rosemary Kverek, 70, a retired Charleston schoolteacher said as tonight's rally wrapped up. "But the problems came from the previous administration. So we're blaming poor Obama, who's working 36 hours a day ... to solve these problems that he inherited."
Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), speaking with a gaggle of reporters after the event, said that while state Sen. Scott Brown (R) offers voters a quick fix, in reality, the problems created by "George Bush and his cronies" are not so easily solved.
"If you think there's magic out there and things can be turned around overnight, then you would vote for someone who could promise you that, like Scott Brown," Kennedy said. "If you don't, if you know that it takes eight years for George Bush and his cronies to put our country into this hole ... then you know we have a lot of digging to do, but some work needs to be done and this president's in the process of doing it and we need to get Marcia Coakley to help him to do that."
Yes, it must be Bush’s fault. Coakley’s daily missteps have absolutely nothing to do with it. By the way, the article also stated that Patrick Kennedy repeatedly referred to Martha Coakley as Marcia Coakley throughout his interview with reporters. But, that too is Bush’s fault.
At some point, the left is going to have to realize that there is a limit to passing the buck. Democrats have controlled Congress since 2006 not 2009, so some of the very things they complain about comes from their own hands.
I suspect that we will be hearing the blame Bush theme all the way until 2012.
