Obama Inherits From George Bush
Don't point fingers. Don't make excuses. Don't pass the buck.
That was the advice President Obama gave to a graduating high school class in Michigan Monday night. He would have said something different, but he couldn't because of George Bush.
"Don't make excuses. Take responsibility not just for your successes, but for your failures as well," he told the graduates.(I am sure he was thinking of George Bush) "The truth is, no matter how hard you work, you won't necessarily ace every class or succeed in every job. There will be times when you screw up, when you hurt the people you love, when you stray from your most deeply held values.(It is all George Bush's fault that Obama had to say that.)
"And when that happens, it's the easiest thing in the world to start looking around for someone to blame.(George Bush caused the whole problem.) Your professor was too hard, your boss was a jerk, the coach was playing favorites, your friend just didn't understand. We see it every day out in Washington, with folks calling each other names and making all sorts of accusations on TV." (George Bush did that so much)
