Maybe my last political post for today.
Reading all of the Obama bashing makes me realize that I’m not through blaming Bush. I was so incensed by him and relieved to be unburdened of his policies and cronies (Cheney, Rove, et al) that perhaps I was too quick to “turn the page” and get on with things. Like the Republicans demonstrated at their own convention, Bush is guy most want to forget as quickly as possible. But still, the width, breadth and depth of his fucking of America is a wonder to behold. That it couldn’t be fixed in 3 years is not a mystery.
While I’m at it, I’d like to also blame Pelosi. It was her job to use Obama’s popularity and appointments to get things done before that honeymoon “window” closed as it always does. While he naively set a course to reason with unreasonable people, she should have gotten some stuff done.
I’ll stop now.
