Why not, it got him elected?

From The Washington Times:

Facing the first real rough patch of his presidency, President Obama and his supporters are once again resorting to a tried-and-true tactic: attacking George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

In his White House press conference last week, Mr. Obama referred to the Bush era at least nine times, three times lamenting that he "inherited" a $1.3 trillion debt that has set back his administration's efforts to fix the economy.

With the former president lying low in Dallas, largely focused on crafting his memoirs, Mr. Obama has increasingly attempted to exploit Mr. Bush when discussing the weak economy, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the difficulty closing the military prison at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

As he took power, Mr. Obama promised a "new era of responsibility" that would transcend partisan politics.

"For a guy who campaigned on taking responsibility and looking forward, he spends an awful lot of time pointing fingers and looking backward," said former Bush deputy press secretary Tony Fratto, who has begun defending the previous administration.

The problem with Obama's "poor pitiful me - look what I inherited" line is that the bulk of Bush's trillion dollar deficit is due to the massive spending in the closing days of the Bush presidency which Barack Obama supported and voted for as a Senator.

Since taking office Obama has increased the "Bush debt" by several orders of magnitude and is attempting to increase it even more.

Mr. Obama, if George W Bush spent too much money then wouldn't the answer be to spend less not more?

As for the wars. Iraq - we won and now we are withdrawing on the schedule that the Bush administration worked out with the Iraqi government. Afghanistan - during the campaign you said that was the "real war", the only one we should have been fighting all along and that if we made you president you would focus on Afghanistan and win the war that mattered.

Well you're the president so show us what you got. . .

And as for the "difficulty closing the military prison at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay" perhaps you are finding it "difficult" because you now are beginning to realize that president Bush was right to create a place under US control but off US soil where these filthy subhuman savages could be warehoused.

So all this pissing and moaning about "difficulty" in closing Gitmo is just you thrashing around in your incompetent empty-headed way trying to avoid admitting that you were wrong and Bu$Hitler was right.

The job of President of the United States calls for a person of integrity, intelligence and experience. Barack Hussein Obama is nothing but a Marxist gutter street agitator whose only real skill is taking a disorganized rabble of worthless parasitic ghetto trash and training them (like Orwell's sheep) to bleat in unison for more handouts and bigger government.

Putting a creature such as this in the Oval office and backing him up with a congress run by the sorry likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid can have no other conceivable result than the mess we find ourselves in now.
