The Blame Game

August 12, 2011

Lather, Wash, Rinse, Repeat… When are the Democrats going to learn any new tricks? This one trick pony is not just out to pasture, it sweats glue!

I’m sure those who saw the President’s speech Monday in reaction to the S&P downgrading our credit rating are aware that it was everybody’s fault but his and the Democrats. I may have misheard; but I think Ms. O’Leary’s cow was blamed too. After Monday’s speech Rush Limbaugh decided to read off just a few (6 PAGES!) of the things Obama blames for his and our problems.

Even today during a speech to workers in Holland, Michigan Obama doubled down on his blame game:

Now, some of what we’re facing today has to do with events beyond our control. As the economy was improving and improving through 2009, 2010, the beginning of this year, suddenly it was hit with the unrest in the Middle East that helped send gas prices through the roof. Europe is dealing with all sorts of financial turmoil that is lapping up on our shores. Japan’s tragic earthquake hurt economies around the globe, including ours, cut off some supply chains that were very important to us. And all of this has further challenged our economy. And as we’ve seen, it’s playing out in the stock market, wild swings, up and down, and it makes folks nervous, and it affects the savings of families all across America.

Now, challenges like these — earthquakes, revolutions — those are things we can’t control. But what we can control is our response to these challenges. What we can control is what happens in Washington. Unfortunately, what we’ve seen in Washington the last few months has been the worst kind of partisanship, the worst kind of gridlock –- and that gridlock has undermined public confidence and impeded our efforts to take the steps we need for our economy. It’s made things worse instead of better.

See, he just said it has nothing to do with his administration’s policies. I don’t know about you, but I’ve gotten more responsibility out of my five year old when he is caught doing something wrong.

It’s not just the President who engages in the politics of blame. It seems to be a virus that spreads throughout liberal ranks. In fact, with Obama leading the way, I’d call it “trickle-down blame.”

Just today the far left Sen. Dick Durbin is calling in federal law enforcement to assist police in the crime ridden city of East St. Louis. And, in classic progressive fashion it is not the fault of the thugs who are at the root of the crime problem. No, they just can’t help themselves.

“You cannot have this club scene turn out to be the wild west, where innocent people are victimized by it, no matter what the revenue is to the city of East St. Louis,” he says. “And you can’t open liquor stores on every corner near housing developments and expect good things to come if you’re open all night.”

The story continues:

Sister Julia Huiaskamp has tutored many kids in the area, and she says opportunities are few.

“We have many, many children who have been cheated by the public schools system here, who do not have the skills they need to get a job, even if there were any jobs to find,” Huiaskamp says. (emphasis mine)

So, clubs, liquor stores and the public schools cheating our children are to blame for the rampant crime in East St. Louis. No, it can’t be the lack of responsibility of the individual or the parent who is actually supposed to ‘parent’ their children. It’s always someone else who is at fault. No ‘man-up’ to see here. Just keep moving along.

Welcome to the Democrats newest solution to all our problems, “trickle-down blame.” What remains to be answered is if it is not the fault of the President and his policies, or that of any Democrats, then what purpose do they serve? Why are they in public office? Why are they elected, and why do they want to be elected?

And, if you don’t agree with me, that’s your fault!
