does anyone have an idea or theory why Bush hasn't addressed any of the obama accusations and blame?Is it out of courtesy or protocol?If it is then him being bashed by obama is part of the plan,either that or obama is breaking protocol.The whole thing seems a bit off to me.

i listened to a few speeches and ive never heard him blame bush.

Because if he spoke publicly every time he was blamed, then he would have more time on the air then Bill Clinton (as a current and former President). Who would want to watch him respond every time the blame game is thrown his way.

And booda:

How many times has Obama mentioned the word "inherited" and not mentioned anything about a sum of money or items from his grandmother? I believe that ratio would be every time to none.

GWB speak up?

i think its an unspoken rule that the incoming president be given at least One Year in office.... only then can a retired pres. offer diffuse & oblique responses about administration policy.

never talk down a pres. or second-guess his policy or leadership...
that's the press & medias job.

A better and more honest question would be what hasn't Obama blamed on Bush. I'm still waiting for the point where he starts taking responsibility for things that go wrong instead of pointing the finger at someone else.

read the things before you post them. 2 of those articles are relevant the rest actually disprove your point.

he only "blames" him for the economy and the Guantanamo bay thing. but neither of those a valid things to blame on bush because he hasn't fixed either one of those messes yet.

no. because a chief of staff can say anything he wants and no one will pay attention.

he hasnt asked him about 911.

and he still wont let anyone else either.

what about his promises to the truth movement.

Well I'll be darned.

Yeah, there's that one. But that's assuming that he believes it wasn't really a terrorist attack and that he's a truther. I've seen no indications of either of those assumptions being true.

Because they're true? Maybe?

Obama DID inherit this fiscal mess.
Obama DID inherit the economy.
Obama DID inherit two wars from Bush.
Bush DID set up Guantanamo.
Bush DID make irresponsible decisions.

I don't get the question.

Maybe Bush doesn't speak up because Obama's right. It is Bush's fault and Bush's problems Obama has to deal with. Read through that list you posted. They are Bush's problems, just like the bailout.

while what you said is exactly true, there was no deception when Obama bought the package. He knew what was in the box. Crying about the contents after the fact is weak. Obama promised change. he hinted it would be change for the better. We shall see.
