Also, I Totally Suck

15 06 2010

I’m a fan of the “What President X Ought To Say” pieces so favored by wingnut types, and (memory serves) I’ve posted about them before.  This one from Mona Charen, and via Ed at Instaputz, is a classic of the category:

When the Deepwater Horizon rig blew up and spawned a terrible oil spill on April 22, my administration’s response was conditioned by decades of liberal and leftist thinking about business and government. My background in academia and community activism had never exposed me to the basics of making business decisions or to the fundamentals of a market economy.

This goes on and on, and it’s not until the next-to-last graf that Charen, after 500-words of blame-placing and perhaps having reached the bottom of the box of wine, gives away the game:

But most of all, we must, as grown-ups, recognize that sometimes terrible things happen and there is no one to blame. The search for villains is unbecoming to a mature people.

Thank G-d there aren’t any of those around here.
