“Now when he faced his country who looked to him for answers, he would not dwell in blame or dream in idealism,” narrator Tom Hanks said in the Obama biopic “The Road We’ve Traveled.”
Brit Hume said he was frankly amazed that Forest Gump could get that line out without coughing because it was just so freaking ridiculous:
All Obama has DONE is blame others.
Asked by Joyner about the current struggling state of the economy, Obama replied: “George Bush left us a $1 trillion deficit, and so it’s a lot harder to climb out of this hole when we don’t have a lot of money in the federal coffers.”
The “blame Bush” strategy is one that continues to have somewhat surprising political legs — even two and a half years after the Republican president left the political stage.
Just out today is the little factoid that “he who would not dwell in blame” actually had the pathetic smallness to blame his rotten poll numbers on Fox News:
A new book by Mother Jones writer David Corn alleges the President Obama lays much of the blame for his bad poll numbers in 2010 on Fox News. According to The Politico, Corn’s new book Showdown features candid griping from the president about role the network played in eroding his white male support.
President Barack Obama blamed Fox News for his political woes in a private meeting with labor leaders in 2010, saying he was “losing white males” who tune into the cable outlet and “hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7,” according to journalist David Corn’s new book, “Showdown.”
In “Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party” — which hits bookstores on Tuesday — the Washington bureau chief for Mother Jones chronicles the White House from the 2010 midterm elections to the start of the 2012 campaign. The book focuses on key moments of Obama’s presidency, such as Osama bin Laden’s assassination, the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the Arab Spring, the debt ceiling crisis, and the president’s dealings with Congress.
Corn writes that after the midterm elections, Obama told labor leaders in December 2010 that he held Fox partly responsible for him “losing white males.”
“…Fed by Fox News, they hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7, and it begins to seep in…The Republicans have been at this for 40 years. They have new resources, but the strategy is old,” Corn recounted Obama as saying.
