Skip to comments.Ed Shultz blames Bush for Bridge Collapse

No, Im not kidding. Heres a paraphrase of what he said:
...the only reason Bush is talking about fatalities is because he didnt give MN enough money to maintain the bridge.
Right, Ed. Because its the President, and not Congress, who appropriates highway funds for roads and bridges.
Whats more, have we really departed so far from our federalist roots that were now blaming the President of the United States for not properly maintaining a bridge in Minneapolis (if that is indeed why the bridge went down)? What about local city officials? County road inspectors? State highway department people? The governor?
But hey, I guess this is what you get from a paid mouthpiece for the Democrat party.
Of course, Schultz isnt the only liberal driven to stupidity by the bridge collapse in Minnesota. Others are saying that the bridge collapsed because, get this, we arent paying enough in taxes. Again, Im not sure why the bridge in Minnesota collapsed (hasnt anyone been inspecting it?), but if more funding was needed to maintain it Congress could have cut back on the number of million dollar bus stops and bridges to nowhere theyve been building with our highway money.
In related news: The DNC’s Iraq platform has Collapsed under the success of the Surge.

I misspelled Ed Shultz (see tagline). But your description is spot-on.
Silly... the bridge clearly collapsed because of the guilt it felt over the unjust war in Iraq. Having to sit there day to day with the weight of the unjust war in Iraq, as well as the baseless allegations this Administration hurled at Osama Bin Laden was just too much for the Bridge to bear... and down it went. Clearly if we’d never invaded Iraq, the bridge would’ve never collapsed. :D
“Who in HELL are they gonna blame when Jan 21, 2009 gets here?....”
Now my stubbed toe, that's another story. I'm pretty sure I can safely pin that one on Bush.
/sarc (for any little O'Reilly assistant trolls out there)
We all knew this would happen. One thing about the DB media - they are sooooooo predictable and shameless.
This schultz idiot was supposed to be “the Limbaugh of the left”, or at least the latest one. I’ve seen him on TV a couple of times, and he’s just a typical stupid, hateful, leftist who thinks he’s a genius. reminds me of that pig beckel.
It’s not Bush’s fault, it’s GLOBAL WARMING!
..which means it’s Bush’s Fault...
If they all of a sudden stop blaming Bush and start in on Rudy-Fred-Mitt or whoever, with the same language, just change the name, they’ll really sound stupid, not that the MSM really cares...........
Everyone is afraid to say it, so I will: George Bush doesn’t like Nordic people.
Hypothetically, if there was a choice of whether to allocate public funds for the bridge repair or the Wellstone Memorial, we know which would have won...
Maybe it’s Lutherans he doesn’t like.
He used to do the Peanuts cartoon strip.
Whoever took 16 hours in the BDS pool, congratulations, you win.
These Nazis are getting quite tiresome. We need a regular housecleaning in this country.
I thought he was retired military. Didn't he used to be a Sargent?
