Since the beginning of his campaign for president up to and including his BP speech this week, Obama has blamed Bush for all the country's problems. I could not put my finger on just why this bothered me so much. Sure, there are partisan reasons for this to bother me, but it was deeper. I finally know what really bugs me. It is weakness. It shows incredible weakness for a leader to constantly blame his predecessor.
In his oval office speech, the president used the BP spill for political gain by linking it to Cap and Tax legislation. Cap and Tax, $20 billion slush fund, blame Bush.
