Best Notable Quotables of 2010: Demanding Respect for Obama While Still Bashing Bush

By Rich Noyes | December 24, 2010 | 11:30 Rich Noyes's picture

Even as the public grew increasingly disenchanted with Washington's full-throated liberal policies in 2010, the media elite's partisanship remained on full display. The Media Research Center's Best Notable Quotables of 2010 captured the highlights, as journalists continued to blame America's misfortunes on George W. Bush, even as they also insisted that Barack Obama deserved more credit for his amazing accomplishments.

In the MRC's "They Don't Miss Him Yet Award for Still Bashing Bush," Time's Joe Klein took the prize for insisting that the April 2010 Gulf oil spill was really Bush's fault: "This is more Bush’s second Katrina than Obama’s first,” Klein lamely insisted on The Chris Matthews Show. Klein made his crack on May 30, nearly 500 days after Bush left the Oval Office.

Runner-up was Newsweek's Jonathan Alter, who declared on MSNBC's Daily Rundown: "The oil spill is the perfect metaphor for Obama’s presidency so far. It’s been cleaning up a lot of the messes left to him by his predecessors, whether it was bank bailouts, auto bailouts, Afghanistan — which turned out to be a much bigger mess than anybody anticipated — preventing a depression that, you know, began to happen on George Bush’s watch. So this is more of the same.”

Liberals are a despicable lot and there truly is a place reserved for them where “the worm dieth not.”

Time and Newsweek - two perfect examples of wasted ink and paper.

If that is true then 9/11 belongs to Clinton.
I know a lot of people said that on this board, and if it is true, then why doesn’t some of this stuff belong with Bush?
Hard to have it both ways.
