I honestly don't care about politics in the slightest, and while Bush wasn't very good at his job, making an ass out of himself at times, and doing some of the worst things I've seen a president do in my lifetime, I feel he IS used as a fall guy way TOO often.
Instead of wasting time blaming it on some guy, I feel that more time should be used fixing issues instead, and talking about them in parts and pieces, studying the obstacles in each one.
This mentality of "BUSH RUINED EVERYTHING", while correct in many ways, has gone on so long that it's sounding whiny.
It's an answer that can be used to brush aside the problem and throw one's hands up in the air.
My point is, I wish I could hear how the problem was being solved in detail, not about the person who caused it. It's a tired joke, one that I've heard so much by now, it's gone from something to smile and nod about, to something that's groan inducing.
I am in no way defending the man, but I am frankly tired of politicians using him as an excuse to avoid discussing the issues in the present.
Wow, I have no idea why that caused me to rant in such a way.
