They want to link Barack Obama to George Bush. Yes, that’s right. Republicans want to link President Obama to the horrible president that they not only “elected” but re-elected. The president who’s policies they were climbing hand and foot over one another to enact into laws.
An internal GOP memo prepared to brief some House Republicans as part of an ongoing probe into the Bank of America-Merrill Lynch deal takes direct aim at an unlikely target: Former President George W. Bush.
The memo directly blames Bush’s handling of the economic meltdown, and it coins a striking new phrase linking Bush and Obama and blaming both administration’s bailout policies in tandem for exacerbating the meltdown: “The Great Bush-Obama Economic Intervention.”
Yeah, ballsy doesn’t even begin to describe it. Basically the gist of the memo is “we fucked up, blame Obama” This would be like if Darth Vader tried to discredit Luke Skywalker by linking him with The Emperor. (Yup, I just busted out a Star War’s reference. That’s how fucked up this strategy is. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, but it never ceases to amazes me how low the IQ bar is to get involved in politics.
