Roland Burris - 'It's Bush's fault' Chicago lost the Olympics
Senator Rowland (sic) Burris of Illinois, the Senator who was appointed to fill President Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat, blames George Bush for Chicago not getting the Olympics in 2016. Burris stated in an interview, shortly after the announcement, that the image of the U. S. has been so tarnished in the last 8 years that, even Barack Obama making an unprecedented pitch for the games could not overcome the hatred the world has for us as a result of George Bush. Wow! When will the Democrats in Congress ever get off this "Blame Bush" syndrome. Burris even went on to say that this is just another way Bush is now hurting Chicago. Yes blame Bush, don't mind all the crime and corruption that has come out of Illinois over the last year. This "Blame Bush" strategy is getting pretty old.
Roland was obviously asleep back in June of 2008 when Chicago was named a finalist city. The world hated Bush so much that they accidentally included Chi-town on the list while Bush was president.
This meme has resonated deeply with many on the left as they search for a way to explain how it was possible that The Annointed One could have failed so epically in bringing the Olympics to Chicago.
Question: Who does Burris blame for his lies about buying his seat from Rod Blagojevich?
