So, the president you have spent five years praising as a Heaven-sent being is mired in an international mess created by his own mouth and his signature achievement is tanking faster than ratings at MSNBC, what do you do for comfort?
If you’re “Senior Fellow” Eric Boehlert at Media Matters For America you retreat to the oldest of all the “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” excuses: “B…b…b…but Bush!”

It’s mostly tired talking points that no one over the age of four believe, like all the people who died on September 11th, 2001 were because of Bush’s failure. In the Leftmedia version of the story, the Bush years happened in a vacuum. And Al Qaeda put together the resources and whipped up the plan for those attacks all in the first seven and a half months of W’s presidency.
Also, it’s Bush’s fault that we telegraphed our exit from Iraq and everything there is in disarray now.
He’s probably drowning the polar bears too.
But, hey, that Obama is something smooth, isn’t he?!?!?
