Obama blames everyone for Everything
The White House today placed the problems in Afghanistan at the feet of the Bush administration. Yes, it is still George Bush’s fault.
A further increase could be politically difficult for Obama, with members of his Democratic Party increasingly uneasy about the war and congressional elections due next year.
The White House sought on Monday to pin the blame for the grave state of the war in Afghanistan on the Bush administration, which made Iraq its top military priority.
“This was under-resourced, underfunded, undermanned and ignored for years,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said.
“The president is focused on ensuring that we meet measurable benchmarks. … It’s going to take some doing.”
At what point in time does the President Obama stand up and take responsibility for his own administration? Today is by no means the exception to the rule. A quick Google search reveals,
