FAILED PRESIDENT RESURRECTS HIS FAVORITE BOGEYMAN FOR 2012 CAMPAIGN PUSH
It’s deja vu all over again. Barack “I’m not gonna make excuses” Obama has unveiled the key strategy of his 2012 reelection campaign – which looks a helluva lot like the key strategy of his 2008 election campaign: Blame George Bush. For Everything.
Mitt Romney pretty much locks up the Republican presidential nomination; the O-man is now able – finally – to map out his strategy and sharpen his attacks – on George Bush. Would it be too much to ask O to run on his own record?
As part of his disingenuous purpose in repeatedly calling for tax increases on millionaires and billionaires, O once again attributed current economic conditions to the “unfair impact of tax cuts for the wealthy” and “the eight years before I took office.” Regime mouthpiece Jay Carney added that Bush’s tax policies contributed to “global economic chaos.” You left out increased solar activity and close flybys by asteroids, Jay.
The Regime even went so far as to blame the former president for North Korea’s recent failed missile launch, saying that George Bush “rewarded North Korea with food aid years ago in spite of its nuclear weapons.” I guess it’s perfectly okay to reward the Palestinians for the terrorist actions of Hamas and Hezbollah by sucking up to them while simultaneously throwing Israel under the bus, huh?
Here’s the O-man in Ohio last week:
“Take a look at what happened – between 2000 and 2008. Instead of faster job growth, we had the slowest job growth in half a century. Instead of broad-based prosperity, the typical American family saw their incomes fall by about 6%. Outsourcing [was] rampant; phony financial profits all over the place. Instead of strengthening our economy, our entire financial system almost collapsed. We spent the last 3 1/2 years cleaning up after that mess. So their theory did not work out so well.”
Memo to O: Listen, if I had your economic record, I’d look for someone else to blame too, but here’s the deal; nobody accused you of creating the problem. Hell – even if we accept your excuse that everything wrong with the U.S. economy (and the universe) is George Bush’s fault, the bottom line is this: We hired you to fix problems - not to incessantly tell us whose fault they are and to make excuses for why you haven’t fixed them. ¿Entienden?
While the Buck-Passer-in-Chief’s relapse into Bush-bashing will always play well with liberals who loathe the very ground on which George Bush walks, the middle 10% of the electorate – those who will decide this election – will not fall for the worn-out rhetoric of a man whose only claim to legitimacy – after nearly four years in office – is not being George Bush.
Truth be told O, there are far more people in America than you realize who would gladly welcome back George Bush – given the alternative of the last four years. That has to irritate the ever-loving crap out of you, doesn’t it?
Shouldn’t the O-man change his campaign slogan to “Barack Obama – Blame We Can Believe In.”?
