So what ever happened to Bush??
I thought it was all his fault!!
Eight plus years of non-stop yammering about everything being Bush's fault, why'd he get dropped like a hot rock?
I mean, it was literally ALL his fault, wasn't it? Obama walked on water and parted the seas, but it was ALL Bush's fault! "The Economy...the Economy!! The sky is falling (and it was), and it's ALL Bush's fault!"
People would love to say it's all Trump's fault, but there's nothing there, nothing to blame on him. "Must find something to blame on him...must find something to blame on him! F# the Economy...he's a racist, he's evil..he's..he's...GAAAAAHHHHH!"
Doesn't this strike anyone as odd, or is it really just expected, business as usual, for the left? It's like Obama never even happened. I'd say it was like a black hole in history, but then someone would probably say they were offended and it was a racist statement (which it absolutely is NOT). It's like there's the wall built around Obama, this layer of impenetrable insulation, but he was there for so long (apparently) that if the left can't blame Trump then now suddenly Bush was too far back in history to blame.
Can the left really stand there with a straight face and say Obama was this pinnacle of humanity, statesman extraordinaire, savior of the economy and champion of the free world???
What about Bush?
P.S. Note - I will be the first person to stand up and say Bush was an idiot, a crony, and a phony. He was a knucklehead when it came to diplomacy, and he is directly responsible for tanking the economy. He is directly responsible for trillions of unnecessary debt (think Iraq and Asskrackistan). He couldn't talk, and he was a clown. I will be the first, so don't mistake this post for what it isn't.
Doesn't something seem a little, well, missing here???

The difference between Bush and Obama.
Bush had difficulty with simple sentences.
Obama we a great orator ... until the tele-prompter went offline and then he was actually worse than Bush.
I don't think Bush understood how to use one.

I think that since Bush took the classy way out and wasn't (very) political after the torch was passed to Obama, it allowed him to go quietly into that good night, so to speak.
Plus, even after eight years, Bush Blamers had to accept that he was no longer the reason for the season.
Now they have Trump, so now a Trump in the present is worth two Bushes in the past...
Why am I talking like this?
