It took a while, but we *knew* it was going to happen in the 2nd term... as soon as the tish hit the fan

DING - We have another winner... MSNBC and the liberal gang!

MSNBC: IRS Scandal - Wait For It - Bush's Fault!









You knew it was just a matter of time, didn’t you? As the IRS scandal draws ever closer to Barack Obama, liberal media lapdogs are circling the wagons. In fact, they have just identified the “real” culprit: George Bush.
Who knew? From the “Let’s connect the dots that aren’t there” department, comes this ridiculous stretch, as reported by Mediaite:
Is it possible that the right-leaning Tea Party was being forced to reconcile onerous information requests from the Internal Revenue Service because former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, thought the nascent conservative movement reflected poorly on the Republican Party? This is the theory that was posited on MSNBC on Monday in an effort to explain the IRS’ admission that they had singled out conservative groups for undue scrutiny.
“Is it really the interesting part here that Shulman, who was a Bush appointee, might have been looking at Tea Party groups because of what it might have done to the Republican Party at the time – in the future of what we’re seeing now; basically, splintering the foundation of the Republican side?” MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts asked?
Mother Jones reporter Monika Bauerlein declined to respond to that speculation, but noted that when a group seeks tax-exempt status, they are asking for “a subsidy from the tax payers.”
“These Tea Party groups were looking for a subsidy from the tax payers, and there were a lot of these groups springing up at the time,” Bauerlein added. She contends that, in the wake of the Citizens United decision, there was a flood of applications to the IRS seeking tax-exempt status as a 501(c)3 – 6 organization. In fact, the number of applications for that status declined in 2010 in the wake the decision.”
Incredible. And? Not so much. Humorous, either way. Liberals’ “He hit me first!” or “Yeah, but what I did wasn’t as bad as what you did!” mentality is particularly entertaining when their crises erupt. (See: Hillary: “Vast right-wing conspiracy.”)
It’s only going to get “better.” Stay tuned.

Ding another winner: Pelosi (duh!)

Pelosi Blames "Bush Appointee" For "Politicized" IRS Scandal


REPORTER: Since the IRS happened on President Obama's watch, how much of a hit -- or do you think at all Democrats will take a hit on the IRS in the 2014 midterms?

REP. NANCY PELOSI (D-CA), MINORITY LEADER: Well, you said it happened under his watch. It happened under the appointment of the head of the IRS, who was appointed by President Bush. His length of stay extended into President Obama's stay. I think that that points to the fact -- why is this a politicized issue? We all are concerned about how the IRS does what it's supposed to do but does not do it in a selective way.

Ding...another winner... the media

Then if there is anything suspicious, the contents might be subpoenaed or requested. But it is massive. It is every phone call that Verizon handles. Every phone call! If you call Domino's on your Verizon cell phone, that call is being turned over to the NSA. Every phone call. There's nothing like this that has ever happened. And the media, they just can't believe it, either. So our buddy Ron Fournier writes: "Welcome to the Bush-Obama White House -- They're Spying on Us."
Welcome to "the Bush-Obama Era..." Whose name is first in this story? Bush! And it's not just Ron Fournier. It's all over. F. Chuck Todd at NBC says this is all Bush's fault. If Bush hadn't been the guy that started this, Obama and Holder would not be doing it themselves. (I kid you not.) "Welcome to the era of Bush-Obama, a 16-year span of US history that will be remembered for an unprecedented erosion of civil liberties and a disregard for transparency.
"On the war against a tactic -- terrorism -- and its insidious fallout, the United States could have skipped the 2008 election." We coulda left Bush in, and everything would have been the same. I mean, this is utterly embarrassingly shameless. To bend over backwards or forwards or to pretzel yourself in whatever perverted position is necessary to include George W. Bush in this? But that's what they're doing, because it just can't be Obama's fault.

ding, another winner (almost... it's cheney, but close enough )

“Some people say, ‘Well, you know, Obama was this raving liberal before. Now he’s, you know, Dick Cheney.’ Dick Cheney sometimes says, ‘Yeah, you know? He took it all lock, stock, and barrel,’” the president told interviewer Charlie Rose in the exchange recorded Sunday, according to excerpts of the transcript published by BuzzFeed. “My concern has always been not that we shouldn’t do intelligence gathering to prevent terrorism, but rather are we setting up a system of checks and balances?”

Ding, we have a winner: Carville (yeah, shocker! )

Carville: People Are Freaking Out About Syria Because Of Bush And Iraq




BILL O'REILLY: I think you've got to take emotion out of the equation. I see a lot of that emotion. I mean, Barbara Boxer, for example, would never support an action against Syria if Mitt Romney were president. Never in a million years. The only reason she is doing it is to help Obama.

On the other side, you have Republicans -- Ronald Reagan, if he were president, would get Assad like that. He would. He would get Assad. And you would have most conservatives line up against -- for Ronald Reagan, in support of Ronald Reagan. But the element here, Carville, is that many people think that Barack Obama is incompetent and he can't -- he can't do this.

JAMES CARVILLE: Well, I will definitely -- he's handled the Middle East pretty well so far. Bin Laden --

O'REILLY: Really? You really think so.

CARVILLE: Yeah. We have had revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, all across the place. Again.

O'REILLY: Libya a mess. Iran is defiant.

CARVILLE: Come on, look. When is all of this -- when was it not? I mean, Gaddafi is gone. It is a mess, I agree with that. But, you know what, it's a mess and we haven't lost any kids over there which says something and --

O'REILLY: I'm not sure that's a litmus test, it doesn't seem to be any clear vision on the part of President Obama. He doesn't have -- 'here is what I want.' He doesn't have that.

CARVILLE: You know, what I would say and maybe a little bit of a different view here. I think what really is freaking people out is the incompetence of the Bush administration in Iraq.

O'REILLY: You're going to blame Bush?

CARVILLE: Of course, the Iraq thing is why people have so much trepidation about going into Syria. They said the last time we went over there, look what happened. I really think this has something to do with it.

Ding, another winner: Brian Williams

Brian Williams opened his broadcast Tuesday night with a report on Al Qaeda forces seizing control of the Iraqi city of Fallujah, going out of his way to blame the group’s resurgence on George Bush.
“U.S. fighting forces are gone from Iraq. But as so many predicted when President Bush chose to go to war there after 9/11, the fighting has started up again.”
But in the report that followed, correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin featured a sound bite of Barack Obama – not President Bush – celebrating the “historic moment” of his abrupt U.S. troop withdrawal from the country after failing to negotiate a status of forces agreement with the Iraqi government.
Barack Obama announced on Dec. 12, 2011, “This is an historic moment. A war is ending, a new day is upon us.” Ayman Mohyeldin noted: “Some warned the U.S. withdrawal left a security vacuum.” Those “some” were right.
While it is true that the war against Islamic extremism in Iraq is for the Iraqi government to fight now, the families of the nearly 5,000 American military personnel killed there must find the news that Al Qaeda is now taking control of cities their sons died to liberate sobering indeed.

Ding, we have another winner: Carney, Obama and White House staff!

you *knew* this was coming. Nothing this administration does is ever it's own fault.

White House admits Obama knew of VA problems in 2008 — blames Bush!



..."

White House press secretary Jay Carney said the problems extended back before Mr. Obama’s term and that the president’s response once in office was to ask for more money to try to handle the flood of veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq.
“You have more veterans being served through health centers around the country. You have more veterans having the availability of disability claims approved through that process,” Mr. Carney told reporters. “And those two facts put additional stress on the system [and] require additional support and funding from the administration, from the government, from Congress.”

She even threw in a "it was Bush's fault" for good measure.

Susan Rice is part of the incompetent "it doesn't matter" core. The more I read about this whitehouse, the more I believe he should be impeached and thrown out.

Congresswoman who co-sponsored Bush impeachment bill said Democrats never tried to impeach Bush


During a floor speech on Wednesday night, Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee voiced her opposition to the House Republican lawsuit against President Barack Obama and said that Democrats had never moved to impeach former President George W. Bush when he was in office.

?A historical fact that President Bush pushed this nation into a war that had little to do with apprehending terrorists,? Jackson Lee said. ?We did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had his authority. President Obama has the authority.?

It's an odd thing for Jackson Lee to say, because it was just six years ago that she helped lead a movement to impeach Bush by co-sponsoring a bill accusing him of high crimes and misdemeanors.

While true, and not surprising that a congress person would be dumber than even TOPUS, I believe the impeachment talk is wasteful and hurtful to the GOP. They should just shutup and let the community organizer self-distruct.
