Tony left more than his heart in San Fran…

“I mean, what [Obama] inherited as a president — [Republicans] can’t blame him for anything because they created all of the trouble for him. I think he’s fine. I think he’s great. What’s wrong with having an intelligent man as president?” –Grammy award-winning singer Tony Bennett

Nothing, Tony. Nothing’s wrong with having an intelligent man as president. Mayhap we’ll get one in 2013…

The often parroted claim that 0bama inherited the current state of the union from Bush is disingenuous at best; malevolently misleading in reality. Though 0bama would wish otherwise, it is not the president, most often, that drives the stake into the heart of the economy of the country, but Congress. Even if the president’s policies (like this president’s) are destructive, Congress has the power to block their enactment.

And just who had control of Congress during that time? Wasn’t Bush. Wasn’t even the Republicans. Ask Pelosi and Reid who had control. Ask them why they allowed this, that 0bama “inherited” but, despite his protests to the contrary, continues to exascerbate.

Yeah, I know: one of those “inconvenient truths“. But I don’t think I’m the only one who notices that when bad things happen under a Democrat’s watch, they blame the previous administration and, when present, opposition in Congress; when Good things happen they attribute it to the mastery of the current administration. The converse is true when a Republican is seated. Interesting, but transparent as all hell…

Go back to your singing, Tony. We don’t buy tickets to hear you expound on your political opinions. Stick to what you’re supposed to be good at.
