    Well, it’s perfectly obvious. I mean, it couldn’t possibly be Obama’s fault, the media has told us that much. The problems that George Bush so obviously caused weren’t actually problems until Obama had to clean them up, because… Well, you just didn’t notice them then. Poor Obama, having to deal with George Bush’s mess. Pity him.

    And so goes the typical excuse for all the bad things that Liberalism causes. “It can’t possibly be Liberalism’s fault, it must be… [insert Republican]!”

    It’s just like in George Orwell’s Animal Farm. Snowball, the pig, gets evicted and is never seen again, and then everything that goes wrong on the farm is Snowball’s fault. Meanwhile, the other pigs start enslaving the minds of the animals, making sure it’s “just common sense” that the brilliant pigs can never be to blame for anything, because they have all of life’s solutions.
