"The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. People are angry and they're frustrated. Not because what's happened in the last year or two years, but what's happened over the last eight years."So once again he dumps Bush into the blame stockade. But why eight instead of three, or nine? Is he purposely excluding 2001 and including his own first year? Does he mean the anger began in 2001 when America was attacked, or in 2002 when Bush began ramping up to take out Saddam? Or maybe he's just so used to using that eight figure to blame Bush for everything he just misspoke.
Either way he seems to be saying that voters elected Scott Brown to fill Teddy Kennedy's seat (a man strongly opposed to the Iraq war) partially because they are still mad at Bush's decision to go into Iraq, despite the fact that Brown has been called a neocon by some of his detractors. Or maybe Obama believes 'The Daily Paul'.
But I think in his coy way Obama was trying to say that people are frustrated with change he's yet to deliver mainly because Bush screwed up the country so badly it's undeliverable, which is not his fault but he understands the frustration because he feels it too. (meanwhile, the 43rd moron continues to quietly help with aid to Haiti as requested by the 44th).
