Team Obama resorts to default excuse: Blame Bush
Obama administration officials must remind each other daily that they will never have to accept responsibility for anything that goes wrong on their watch as long as they can find some way to blame their troubles on George W. Bush.
So it should surprise no one that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and the administrations surrogates are vociferously claiming that Operation Fast and Furious, the gun-walking scandal run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is all Mr. Bushs fault. Fast and Furious was a program that resulted in Congress holding Mr. Holder in contempt for lying, put a couple thousand guns into the hands of Mexican drug gangs and led to the death of a U.S. Border Patrol agent and as many as 200 Mexicans.
Obama spokesmen claim it all began under Mr. Bush and a little-known operation also run out of Phoenix, dubbed Operation Wide Receiver. The Bush-era program involved a few hundred guns and was designed and run by U.S. and Mexican agents who planted electronic tracking devices in the guns so the agents could follow the guns on both sides of the border. The idea was to compile evidence that could be used to prosecute gang kingpins...
On Nov. 8, 2011, however, when it still looked as if stonewalling alone might work, the attorney general admitted before the Senate Judiciary Committee that there was no relationship between Wide Receiver and Fast and Furious, and he claimed he would never try to equate the two programs. That, of course, was then - before all else had failed and it was time once again to blame Mr. Bush for an Obama administration scheme that went bad.

I expect Obama to blame Bush.
I also expect Bush to absorb another hit like a sponge.
Hey George. Grow a pair.
Grow a pair for the party.
It’s time to shut this fool up
He did already....the wrong party.
What is it about ex-Presidents that keeps their mouths from working when they ought to be loudly speaking out!?!?
In the 2010 midterm election, when Republicans crushed Democrats up and down the ballot nationally, less than 33 percent of the white working class voted for House Democrats a record low.All those white devils and the Tea Party can take the party away from the GOPe, IMHO. Don't forget voter registration drives in white working class areas as well as minority areas.
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.

Only Republican ex-Presients.

If anyone should be growing a pair it would be those responsible for directing Wide Receiver including those still in the DOJ who should be speaking out.
