Well, it works like this: If the discussion of blame must come up (like how did we achieve the deficit), the person who EARNED the blame GETS the blame. And if that person happens to be the last Republican that we allowed to sit behind the Resolute Desk, well, so be it. It doesn't change with time. It's just a fact.I am glad to hear a liberal say the time has passed to stop playing the blame game although they still invoke Bush's name in every other sentence of blame.
We don't have to linger on those questions though. Unfortunately, many do keep laying the blame on the current president, rather than the one who earned the blame,and they seem to require frequent smack-downs to remind them of the facts.
