It doesn’t mater what the situation is – it’s Bush’s fault. If it weren’t so serious it’d be funny. Tim Russert sat there over the weekend and listened (with a straight face) to Joe Biden blame President Bush for everything from suicide bombers to the VA Tech murders. Unbelievable. Biden took it one step beyond – suggesting that Republicans in general are responsible for the breakdown of American moral fabric. Ha!
To paraphrase a line from the Bible, you reap what you sow. And ladies and gentlemen, we are reaping what we have sown, the seeds of destruction and the seeds of malcontention that we’ve sown. I would argue, since 1994 with the Gingrich revolution, ladies and gentlemen, just take a look at Iraq, Venezuela, Katrina, what’s gone down in Virginia Tech, Darfur, Imus. Take a look. This didn’t happen accidentally, all of these things. Since 1994, from the Gingrich revolution to Karl Rove and President Bush, we have wallowed, wallowed in the politics of polarization.
Does Biden think we’re completely clueless? Apparently, yes. This kind of arrogence is beyond anything I have witnessed. Can you imagine – blaming VA Tech on Republicans?! Only a democrat. Of course – in common fashion, Republicans are sitting under their desks afraid to challenge him on any of it. And Russert…shameful.
I particularly like how Biden says that Republicans are responsible for all of these horrific events and then adds the blurb about polarizing politics. Anyone seen my black tea pot?
Of course, he qualifies it “…by the way, they’re, they’re, they’re not directly responsible for any of those things…” But then goes on to wax poetic about how it really is Republicans fault – they changed the atmosphere and it percolated “through the entire society.” Clear as mud.
