The Republican No Fault, No Blame Phenomenon

Author: May 9, 2011 8:42 am

The one attribute Republicans hold that no other group in world history can claim, is that they can do no wrong. Seriously! As remarkable as this claim sounds, just look at their track record.

 

The Economic Meltdown Was the Democrat’s fault

When Bill Clinton left office in early 2001, he left George W. Bush $300 billion in the kitty, and the CBO issued predictions for a $2 trillion surplus by the end of the decade. Instead, we had a $1.3 trillion deficit at the end of the Bush administration. Ah, you say! You think this is evidence of fiscal malfeasance on the part of the Republicans? Ha! Silly liberal… the real reason, is because when the Democrats took control of Congress in early 2007, they spent irresponsibly. Never mind that they didn’t, and never mind that the economy actually began slowing significantly the year prior, and never mind that Dick Cheney told George Bush not to sweat the economy, because “Reagan taught us, deficits don’t matter.” So as you can see, the Republicans deserve to be exonerated of any blame for the recession, and these hard times are clearly all the fault of the Democrats.

 

9/11 Clinton’s fault

Nine months into George W. Bush’s first term, the United States was attacked by Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda terrorist network. Now, I know what you’re thinking; you probably think that because it happened on his watch, and because he was handed a brief entitled “Al Qaeda Determined to Attack Within the US” just five weeks before the attack (that he never read), and because he refused to listen to Richard Clarke, the counter-terrorism expert whose job was to focus exclusively on al Qaeda, you probably think 9/11 was George Bush’s fault. WRONG! It was all Bill Clinton’s fault. Why? Because World Net Daily (ironclad *NEWS* you know) still claims Clinton had several opportunities to kill bin Laden, but chose not to. Therefore, the 9/11 attacks weren’t Bush’s fault. And if you don’t believe me, just go look it up at WND.com. They’ve got all the answers – including an update of the latest theory on Obama’s forged birth certificate (posted May 8th, I swear!).

 

Housing Crises

You probably think the crash of the housing market is Bush’s fault too, right? Just because it happened while Bush was in the White House, and Bush himself kept promoting affordable housing for everyone via Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac? Pffffffttt. Nope. It’s ALL the fault of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. Just ignore that Bush himself is seen multiple times on YouTube clips promoting Fannie and Freddy, and focus exclusively on Barney and Chris, and you too will soon see the light. It was all the Democrat’s fault.

 

Bush Gets Credit for Killing Osama bin Laden

And how about the nerve of the media giving credit to the Obama administration for killing Osama bin Laden? After all, it was George W. Bush who first said “He can run but he can’t hide,” which is no doubt what inspired president Obama! Had Bush not said that, it probably would have never occurred to Barack Obama that he should double-down on capturing bin Laden, or reinstate the CIA’s special bin Laden team that George Bush disbanded six years ago. So, thank you George Bush keeping America safe for eight years, and for killing Osama bin Laden! See how that works? When you seek the righteous path, it will reveal itself to you.

 

Iraq War Sanctioned by Democrats

And hilariously enough, some people have even tried to suggest George Bush was to blame for the Iraq War, and the failure to find WMDs. Can you believe that!? I know, I know… they’re just bitter. This too is nonsense. How do I know? Simple… because there are quotes from prominent Democrats saying Saddam had WMDs (many aired on Sean Hannity’s program dating back to 1990), so that’s that. Ignore for now that every last one of those Democrats also said that an invasion should be a last resort, and only after the UN weapons inspectors had positively concluded that Saddam did indeed have them. Picky, picky. The greater point is, we’ve got John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and Teddy Kennedy all saying Saddam was a bad guy, so the real instigators were the Democrats, not poor George, who always seems to get blamed for taking bad advice from Democrats.

 

General Motors

And isn’t it wonderful that General Motors has made such a miraculous recovery? After all, that’s thanks to George Bush and the Republicans too! I know what you’re thinking; you think that just because the vote to loan GM the funds they needed was along partisan lines, with almost every Republican congressman willing to let the manufacturer fail, and cost hundreds of thousands of Americans their jobs, you probably believe Barack Obama deserves the credit for that. Well, guess what smarty-britches? George Bush, just before he snuck out of Washington, agreed to a portion of the GM bill, so most of the credit for GM’s success goes to him, not Obama. And how do I know that? Because Neil Cavuto said so!

 

Gas Prices: Obama’s fault

  • The Deficit caused the Recession? O RLY?

    The Bible contains 6 Admonishments to Homosexuals & 362 Admonishments to Heterosexuals. That doesn’t mean that God doesn’t love Heterosexuals. It just means they need more supervision.

    First, you have to stop and look at the deep emotional problem that Speaker Of The House, John “Boner” Boehner has. It is not normal for a grown man to suddenly burst into tears in front of Reporters when he opens his front door. It’s evident that he’s not right in the head. The GOP should have given him time off and gently steered him to a Psychiatrist for evaluation.

    With serious emotional problems clouding his thinking, he should not be advising his Colleagues on what actions need to be taken to address the Nations problems.

    It’s obvious that he’s not thinking clearly and the rest of the Republican Party should be careful on acting on his opinions and ideas. If I cried at work for no apparent reason, you can bet your sweet little behind that my employer would put me on Medical Leave.

    Republicans are idiots and arguing with them is a waste of time………….proven once again by Kyle and Utterbs. They are idiots, they are not rational, critically thinking people…..they are brain washed by FOX et al. Bush screwed up this country for eight years and considers himself blameless for all the problems that occurred on his watch. Had idiots not elected Bush, we would be in far better shape today.

  • Sounds like it struck a nerve with a few republicans. Too bad that they can’t handle the truth, but then they never could.

  • What utter bs. A childish rant, with half truths and spin. Your twisted, brainwashed view of reality is worse than the one you purport the republicans to have. Grow up.

  • I find it perplexing that you are all missing the point, Democrat, Republican, Libertarian whatever its not that simple you cant lump all Republicans in the same basket nor Dems or anyone else for that matter. Its people like you that believe in nothing but an image that fuck this country up. Grow up and stop with the conspiracy theories already i thought the republicans were supposed to be the whackos but you guys are just as simple-minded and ignorant as you accuse your counter-parts of being.

  • They been perfecting the facist propaganda machine since Reagan was a puppet president . Remember ol’ Ronnie was responsible for the fall of the Soviet Union. Ya ,,,,right

  • You mention Clinton’s surplus and Bush turning it into a 1.4 trillion debt. You failed to mention a majority of economics scholars and think tanks attribute the turning of the surplus into the deficit to GWB’s tax cuts. Twice. Clinton left office wanting the surpluses his policies created to go to shoring up Social Security and Medicare. Bush ignored that (no surprise) and wanted the surplus to go back to the rich. Now the rich have Clinton’s surplus, and the Republicans are not shoring up Social Security and Medicare, but demolishing them. The fault for this rest squarely on Bush and his Republican congress and senate. Democrats left surplus for the foreseeable future, paying off the entire national debt in less than a decade. A decade later, historic debt, historic deficits, historic wealth disparity, historic corporate profit, historic government spending, historic foreclosures, historic job shortages. What are they not getting?

  • I’m so glad to finally see an article addressing this issue! This Phenomenon has been baffling me for some time.
    The GOP Public Relations juggernaut has proven not only that they are willing to do and say Anything for political gain, but too, that they can sell it to the masses.
    I would love to see this issue become more prominent in the media!

  • No one will believe this anyway-one brain, one way.

  • No one will believe this anyway-one brain, one way!

  • And I’ve been hearing all of those (and many more) in political forums since way before the 2008 elections! And don’t bother trying to show any of them any kind of proof that they are (or might be) wrong, because if it doesn’t come from Limbaugh, Hannity or Beck, they simply won’t believe it.
