    The CIA was far too busy spying on our own Senate (for preparing an expose of the Bush-era torturing) to pay attention to either Putin or ISIS. And they thus stole a march on us (also an April, May, June, July, August……….)

    It’s brown stuff, but it ain’t chocolate. And we just can’t seem to keep our shoes out of it.

    Fox “news” used to run those clips all the time. I wonder why they don’t run them any more. -But, you know, it was Obama that polarized the country. By getting elected.

    Rumsfeld and his dummy: Dick Cheney, gave us most of this “cake” and had others of Rumsfeld’s clones to help, all working for “W”, unrestrained. They had the threat against his daddy as the only factual rationale, but so what, they buit that cake of lies as high as possible, and sold it with the dummies, or those they blackmailed and lied to, even changing the reports from our “intelligence” agencies, and foreign ones as well..

    To be accurate the cartoon should show the man backtracking and allowing a lot of hard-earned progress come to naught.

    One of the real problems with the blame game is that the worst consequences of any president’s actions only appear years after he leaves office. To paraphrase Garrett Hardin, “Most decisions are made with an immediate problem or situation in mind. But all actions have both short-term and long-term consequences. Therefore, you can take it as a maxim in most human affairs that the UNINTENDED consequences of any action will be longer-lasting than the INTENDED consequences.”We are perfectly justified in blaming Bush for our present situation: and Clinton, and Reagan, and Carter, and Nixon, and so on back to George Washington, I suppose. They each own different parts of it. But most of all, the blame should to ourselves, the American people, for we have ultimate control over all of this, - though it suits our vanity better to deny it, and blame it all on “the politicians.” This remains a democratic republic, and the people have the right and the power (when they can stop squabbling and get their act together) to make things go as they choose. But mostly they like to sit around a whine about how the wrong guys got elected and are screwing everything up. Of course we mostly hate the guys in office: half of us don’t vote, and nearly half of those who do, vote for the loser. That means that no matter who gets elected, nearly 75% of us didn’t vote for him, and can pretend that what he does is not our responsibility.
