catfish5 saidWill the Righties be giving Bush his due credit for the rising gas prices and destroying the economy, too? Prolly not. What we will hear from the right is "Bush hasn't been in office for 21/2 years. This is Obama's problem." LOL.
Typical GOP hypocrisy. Thank God Bush is no longer in the WH or we would never have found bin Laden
I've also been noting this hypocrisy. For months the Republicans here have been mocking those who note that many of Obama's problems (the economy, the debt, 2 wars) began under Bush. They ridiculed blaming Bush for anything, so late into the Obama Administration (actually, some of them were doing it at 6 months), despite the fact that any economist will tell you how much any national economy moves like molasses in winter.
But as soon as Obama has a notable success, suddenly the Bush Effect DOES linger, it DOES continue. What a load of hypocritical crap.
Apparently only success is retrograde and eligible to be appropriated by Republicans, but never failure, which is always original and a solitary orphan, to be left at the Democratic doorstep. A Republican model which does not surprise me. They cherry-picked the intelligence on the Iraq War, I guess they can cherry-pick the Obama successes they want to claim.
Too bad for them Obama didn't have a great failure here, which the Republicans announced they wanted even before the man had taken his Oath of Office. "We want Obama to fail" they said and became the Party of No in Congress, to try to insure that Obama did fail. Well, at least like an inept boxer, the Repubs tend to telegraph their punches.
