SHIFTING THE BLAME FOR TORTURE

Having been caught with their pants down, the Rethuglicans are trying to shift the blame away from themselves and the Bush administration to the Democrats.

From Keith Olbermann on Countdown last night:

It was the same with the IWR after the war turned out to be not such a good idea after all. The Democrats didn't even have the power to get to read the bills most of the time and Rove & Co. had successfully vilified any attempt at reason, but it's the Democrats' fault that they didn't stop the Bush administration from their lying, criminal ways. Makes perfect sense to me.

ZenYenta - This is typical Rethuglican bullshit! It's always the fault of someone else, it's never their fault...like it's the Democrats fault that they didn't stop Bush. But as you said the Democrat's voices had been shut down by Rove, Cheney and others, so there was no way they could have stopped the things Bush/Cheney wanted to do.

Good Morning Grandpa Eddie! The repubs found their niche - lie, obfuscate, obstruct, denigrate, deny, shift, hatred, racism, perversion, and insult. Did I leave anything out?

Grandpa Eddie said...

Good Morning Nancy!

Ya left out just one thing that I can see, right now anyway, and that would be GREED.

Nancy said...

Oops! You're right. I also forgot God and self-righteous.

Grandpa Eddie said...

"...God and self-righteous."

...because we all know they've got the corner on both.

Nancy said...

I prefer the corner we're on. It's ever so much more pleasant, kind, and truthful.

What's yer weather like there today? There's a grey pall floating above us here, but the sun is trying to poke through.

Grandpa Eddie said...

It's sunny but cool and breezy. We had 3+ inches of rain over the weekend, so everything is still drying out...including our basement.

Riot Kitty said...

Oh wtf? They're always shifting blame for the shit they have created. The deficit? Hello!

Grandpa Eddie said...

Riot Kitty - You are so right! Everything they've fucked up is blamed on someone else.

Gordon said...

ZenYenta is one of the coolest blog names I've heard!

Repugs are very good at screwing stuff up and then pointing the blame at others. It's their M.O.

Grandpa Eddie said...

You're right Gordon. It's the only thing they do well.

Jacob said...

John Boner is stupider than my dead palm tree!

Oh, I'm sorry. Is he crying?

Grandpa Eddie said...

"Is he crying?"

Who cares, he's been whining since election day last year.

Nancy said...

Crocodile tears.

Grandpa Eddie said...

Nancy - I think they'll be real now that the Rethugs have no say in the Senate anymore either. The Rethugs in both Houses have been reduced to the Party of No Effect.
