Nor did Bush blame Democrats. The closest he came was saying that he inherited a recession which was simple fact. Nothing wrong with Obama saying the same, but what he is trying to do by blaming “the failed policies of the last 8 years” is not acknowledge truth, but to manufacture it and plant it in the public’s minds. Democrats are all too aware that “a lie oft repeated becomes truth” and have mastered the technique.
When Obama criticizes Bush, he doesn´t sound presidential, he sounds like he´s campaigning.
