Rachel Maddow: Ukraine is Bush's fault

Thomas Lifson
Right on schedule, George W. Bush is being blamed for President Obama’s problems, this time in Ukraine. My goodness, what an incredibly powerful figure, to be causing Obama to fail so consistently. Here’s the tortured logic as reported by Cheryl K. Chumley of the Washington Times:

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asserted Monday that George W. Bush, who exited officehttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/icon1.png in 2009, is ultimately at fault for the current Ukrainian crisis.

Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute.

“The decisions of our generation on national securityhttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/lb_icon1.png are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on,” Ms. Maddow said during a discussion about her new documentary, “Why We Did It.”

“Those are the determinative constraints for our thinking about everything, from Crimea, to Syria, to what the overall size of the U.S. military is,” she said.

“Everything”! There you have it. Right along with global warming, Bush is to blame for everything.
