Fw: Another Honor for Bush

The Obama Administration will be honoring the 43rd President of the United States by naming the margin along the tectonic plates beneath Haiti after him. The area will now officially be referred to as "Bush's Fault".

Did anyone say the quake was Bush's fault? I mean,
except sarcastic, history-rewriting reactionaries?

There are literally hundreds of things affecting the
US that are literally Bush's fault. We don't need to
make up crap like Republicans do.

Well, points for "Bush's Fault" being a clever pun, even if it makes no sense whatsoever in context.

I wouldn't blame the quake on Bush, but there were a lot of Haitian foreign policy decisions made by the Bush Admin that weren't exactly great for the people of Haiti. I would say that those were Bush's fault.

I wouldn't expect rightists, who only seem able to accept "talking points" from rightwing thinktanks & rightwing media - and seem unable to do their own research and reason for themselves - to understand the complexities of US policy in re to Haiti over the many years and how that has had a very negative impact on the citizens of Haiti.

Guess it's much easier to listen to Pat Robertson say that those darkies worship the devil and just got what's coming to them. Yeah, yeah: that's the ticket. I got mine, eff them.

I'd wager the point of this joke isn't to refer to actual criticism about Haiti, but to reinforce the conservative view that Obama blames everything on Bush and therefore can't take responsibility for his own mistakes (everything since he took office, natch).

The gag got an eye-roll out of me, for what it's worth, but they'd have done better to wait for a disaster on American soil to roll it out, since Limbaugh has been paiting the prompt Haiti response as an Obama popularity grab and a waste of taxpayer money.

@ Anon

Why would we forget about that? Bush screwed up big time and was bashed appropriately. What's the problem?

Another great example of advanced Wingnut "humor." They just operate at a whole 'nother level.
