This morning on MSNBC, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi spoke to Chuck Todd about the historic oil spill, Carly Fiorina, and of course, blaming the Bush administration. In fact, she blamed the fundamentals of the financial crisis on the 43rd president.
Interestingly, when Todd first began asking, “Why do Democrats keep blamin’ the Bush administration,” Pelosi interrupted and said, “I haven’t even heard that.” Really, Madam Speaker? Todd then asked her when Americans would get tired of hearing the country’s problems blamed on George W. Bush.
“When do you feel like that runs out with the public?” Todd asked.
“Well, it burns out when the problems go away. And here’s what the president inherited. He inherited–a deficit, when this president inherited from the Clinton administration four budgets that were either in surplus or in balance. And he turned it into a massive deficit.”
