A full year and a half into the Obama administration, the president's hacks and flacks are still trying to blame President George W. Bush for the fact that so many things are going wrong, no matter how wildly implausible.
In recent days, Arianna Huffington has called Bush "1000% responsible" for the BP oil spill and the inept governmental response. Bush is also being blamed for the escalating tensions related to Israel's need to defend itself via the Gaza blockade. And because George W. Bush is at the root of virtually everything that goes wrong in the world, the former President is even being blamed for Al Gore's separation from wife Tipper.
Considering that Barack Obama's major accomplishment as a senator from Illinois was voting "present," it's fascinating to see him trying to claim that he's still not "present" when it matters most.
