Blaming Bush, # 2,328,422.

There were a few raised eyebrows after the West Virginia Democratic primary when a prison inmate, Keith Judd (Left) was able to score 42% of he vote against President Obama. West Virginia is one of the states where the President has problems owing to the impact of his energy policies and the poor economy on employment, especially in the coal industry. Still, 42% is a big protest vote among his own party.

Now he seems to have a more serious threat in the Clinton home state of Arkansas, where polling indicates that he is holding a slim lead of 7% in a rapidly tightening race against a virtually unknown candidate. The candidate, John Wolfe maintains that the latest polling numbers are indicative of the discontent Democrats have towards Obama who he claims “doesn’t understand them.”

The Arkansas Democrats must be getting nervous as they have announced that regardless of the results, Wolfe would not be allowed any delegates owing to a ‘paperwork’ problem.

Fortunately, in times of crisis, the Administration has Vice President Joe Biden to help put the right spin on things, at least when he is able to remember what subject he is discussing. Joe claims that he doesn’t blame people for voting that way, which is forgiving of him. It makes you wonder what America did to deserve the current Administration:
“Look, I come from a household where whenever there’s a recession, somebody around my grandpop or my dad’s table lost a job.”

"A brother, a sister a friend, a neighbor. When you’re out of work, man, it’s a depression. And a lot of people are still hurting because of this god-awful recession we inherited that cost 8.4 million jobs before we could really get going. And so I don’t blame people, they’re frustrated, they’re angry.”
After around three and a half years in power, it seems to be a total cop out to be blaming Bush, especially given that the Democrats controlled both Congress and the Senate for the last two years of his term, and continued this control until 2011 when they lost the House. It’s worth remembering that Obama came to power on the assurance that he could fix everything including the rise of the oceans and the earth’s injuries.
