Out on the campaign trail, President Obama and his allies may be directing much of their fire at the Chamber of Commerce with baseless allegations of foreign influence, but Vice President Joe Biden hasn't forgotten the old Obama playbook.
"Folks, people are angry -- they're angry, I'm angry," Biden told the audience at a Democratic fundraiser at the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee Friday night. "I am truly angry as I go around the country watching people absolutely, fundamentally blown away by the greed and the policies of the last eight years, of the last administration."
Biden is also making discredited claims against Bush. According to pool reports, at a Democratic fundraiser in Pittsburgh Monday, Biden said the economy had created 860,000 private-sector jobs in the last nine months and "that is more jobs than the Bush administration created in eight years."

That record, certainly nothing to brag about, began in a recession with the bursting of the dot-com bubble and ended in the current recession. And Biden is not only wrong on the numbers, he is even more wrong when one does an apples-to-apples comparison of net job creation during the Bush and Obama administrations.

It’s the “kitchen sink” approach which desperate losers use: throw everything including the kitchen sink at the other party in attack ads.
So it’s also “Bush’s fault” that “Recovery Summer” didnt happen?
Bush is the only scapegoat they’ve been able to find, and that’s only because as a man of integrity he chooses not to engage with them. All the other attacks - on Rush, Fox News, Palin, Rove, etc - have failed.
So they keep doing the only thing they know - blame Bush.

Proof of no gray matter?

Don’t forget Herbert Hoover and Richard Nixon. It’s their faults too!
The wheel’s spinning, but the hamster’s dead.
The braindead one’s who listen to him and vote Rat know nothing and believe that tripe.
