Rove: Obama's Blame Game is Inaccurate and Wearing Thin
Karl Rove calls out Team Obama on their dishonest attempts to blame the Bush Administration for their record spending on Greta Van Susteren.
"I can find no administration in which there is such a frequent recourse to blame the previous administration... They want to blame the Bush Administration for the debt. I happent to be last week in a debate with David Plouffe in which he blamed the Bush Administration for teh deficit this year. And I said, "Wait a minute, waht about your spending bill? It was your bill President Obama's $787 Stimulus Bill. What about the $33 billion SCHIP bill that he signed? What about the $410 Omnibus Bill? In reflection didn't Senator Obama support the rescue package the recovery package last fall, the $750 billion to help rescue the banks?" $350 billion dollars of that was spent by the time he got into office. If he didn't like that spendig he could have said, "You know were not going to spend another dime of that $350 billion," and yet he did... I think this is wearing thin. This is causing the American people to say, "Wait a minute this is all your spending. Why do you keep blaming the guy who came before you?"
Spot on Rove. The rhetoric of the Obama administration, and its' hangers on, is wrong and misleading. Democrats own the GFC. Democrats own the misleading research on GW. Democrats are profiting directly from both crises .. through kickbacks and pork-barrels. Each time Dems raise the issue, they ask for more.
