You’ve got to love Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd.
Well, not really … but his faculty to actually believe the things he says while continuing to live in exile from the land of rational thought borders on impressive. It’s one thing to keep drawing talking points and flaccid strategies from the ancient Democrat playbook. It’s quite another to sound as if your points of argument were hijacked from an underground leftist blog created in mommy’s basement … or from Chris Matthews’ diaries.
It is a case of Bush Derangement Syndrome on steroids … and the syringe is still sticking out of Senator Dodd’s tush.
The Senator was a guest on Don Imus’ radio program yesterday. According the Nutmeg State nut, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill can be blamed only on one thing: George W. Bush.
From Real Clear Politics:
When asked by Don Imus on his morning program if the Obama was to blame for lack of response to the oil spill, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) blamed the Bush administration. “Well, you know, they come into office a year ago with all of this. And so, after the last eight years,” he said.
At that point, Imus interrupted and asked if he has “lost” his mind for blaming Bush. “The President has been in office for a year and a half and they’ve been dragging their feet and even people like James Carville said that his behavior ‘has been at the very best lackadaisical and naive’ and you’re still going to try to blame Bush?” he said.
“To lay this at Obama’s doorstep, in light of years and years of regulatory permissiveness when it comes to these kinds of operations occurring — it didn’t occur in the last year and a half,” he said. “I mean, you know that as well as I do. You can’t lay this all at Obama’s door anymore than I can say,” Dodd responded.
That must mean that Senator Dodd places the blame for the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks squarely on the shoulders of President Bill Clinton, right?
It stands to reason.
George W. Bush was in office a little less than eight months when America was attacked. Barack Obama has been in office sixteen months, and yet, Senator Dud somehow blames Obama’s predecessor on something that occured almost a year-and-a-half after Bush went home.
Using the Senator’s method, President Clinton practically commandeered the planes into the twin towers himself.
As far as the Gulf oil spill … thirty-nine days and counting …
