“And I was ’round when Jesus Christ
Had His moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate”
“Sympathy for the Devil” – The Rolling Stones – Jagger/Richards
“I just go BERSERK!” – Billy Jack, from the movie of the same name, just before he kicks some serious townsfolk ass.
Well, I am an amiable person, maybe, but after a bit you do just go berserk. I am talking about the mindset of some on the Right that feels any comment, criticism or acknowledgement of anything that the Republicans may have done and specifically the actions or failures of the Bush Administration are “looking at the past.”
Sorry, my friends on the Right, but you don’t get to just wash your hands of what your party did when they held the reins of power.
Our President inherited two wars, an epic collapse of our economy that threatened the global economy in a manner that could have brought on another Great Depression and a multitude of other issues.
What we get from the Rights is:
You can’t look at the past.
Who is in charge now?
What has Obama (and the Democrats) done to fix it?
I didn’t support George W Bush!
Well, somebody voted for Bush and the Republicans that held power. A few short years ago, you were singing the praises of GWB and condemning all criticism of him as being “anti-American.”
This is a bit of a rant, I admit, but what are your thoughts, my fellow low-life, Bush hating, socialists here at Pop Blog?
