MSNBC's Rachael Maddow plays the "blame Bush game" over Ukraine crisis

Ultra-liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow flatly stated Monday on her news and opinion show that the George W. Bush administration's Middle East policy has steered America's current security policy and response to global crises, including the one in Ukraine.

It appears that the Obama administration isn’t the only source using scapegoats for their catastrophic foreign policy failures.

While promoting her new documentary, "Why We Did It," showcasing her opinion of U.S. involvement before and during the Iraq War, she told Hillary Clinton’s favorite “journalist,” Andrea Mitchell the “Bush administration is largely responsible for the nation's current course overseas.”


Maddow’s reasoning goes something like this:The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on," she told a nodding Mitchell. "And the American people are against those wars."

She continued, “Those are the determinative constraints for our thinking about everything, from Crimea, to Syria, to what the overall size of the U.S. military is.”

Once again, the liberals are blaming their policies over the last five-and-a-half years on George W. Bush.

Anyone still buying this?

As has been the former president’s reaction to the blame game at the White House, he had no comment.
