John Kerry: Not "Fair" To Stop Blaming Bush And Now Blame Obama
RealClearPolitics ^ | August 2, 2010 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 08/02/2010 7:52:37 AM PDT by i88schwartz

"I think what's happened is Fareed, in the last six months I think there was an article even in the paper this week about people no longer blaming Bush. They're beginning to target this White House. That's a natural course of events as you go through any administration, but I don't think it is fair to the President," Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) said on CNN.

"The story hasn't been sufficiently told," Kerry added.

Did you know that John Kerry was in Vietnam? And that he is a berther?

To really get your point across John F’n, hold your breath til you’re past blue. That sounds “fair” to me.

Really??

I’ve never heard of the tech-bubble recession that happened 6 months before GWB took office being referred to as the “Clinton Recession”, but we’ve been hearing for two years now (actually 10 years) about how everything is “Bush’s fault”.

By this logic, we should be blaming the Kaiser, not Hitler for World War II. I wonder what he is smoking on that boat of his?

Somebody should ask this dumb*ss, “At what point does Obama become responsible for his actions? 2 or 3 years into his second term? How about 3 years into the next president's term?”

IDIOT!

He hasn’t.

It’s his fault.

When Clinton ruined the economy and Bush had to cleanup the mess, the Democraps blamed Bush immediately. In fact, they blamed him before he even took office!

Kerry most certainly would love Obama’s policies. The nanny state concept is just fine with someone like him who is ‘beyond’ all that. He's one of the ‘big people’ taking care of the ‘little people’, and of course the big people know what's best for the little people.

They can never get their message out.

When does Obama take responsibility for his actions? Not only that, if I remember right, Democrats were in charge for the last two years of the Bush Admin. So I guess we should be blaming them also.

Yep, if only the Democrats had the mainstream media in their pocket, repeating their talking points. If only they had all the outspoken Hollywood idiots on their side. If only they had good spokesmen such as John Kerry to get the message out.

It’s amazing that he will say that the story hasn’t been sufficiently told. The idea that people know the story and have decided they don’t support the Democrats is beyond his comprehension. This betrays the liberal thinking that everyone would support liberalism if only they understood the ideology, if only it were explained to them properly. Sheesh............

Oh, right - everything must be judged by whether or not it’s ‘fair’. How adolescent.

Get back to us, John when the msm blames obummer for everything that happens anywhere, day after day and year after year for more than 8 years - that will include time out of office too.

It’s not fair to blame free enterprise, tax cuts, and deregulation since none of these (even tax cuts) were championed by Bush. (The tax cuts were an illusion in the face of the deficit and wasteful spending).

The correct response is: “You don’t say? Who knew? Surely there would have been something about it in the papers or on TV!” My wife and I played this game everytime Kerry was on TV during the 2004 campaign. I’d start it with, “Did you know John Kerry was in Vietnam?”, and she knew her lines by heart.

Good point.

At least from recent history we had Carter, Clinton, Obama,
all in the tank.....

How about some focus on how Dem policies cause loss.....

P.S. MSM don’t forget Fannie/Freddie impact and dems involvement when you talk about Bush slide...........
