When President Obama repeatedly blamed George W. Bush for the condition of the economy, Republicans repeatedly took issue with the charge. Both parties were to blame for the way Congress forced financial institutions to loan money to people who had no business being approved for a mortgage.
Congress has been in the business of wrecking the economy and then claiming they have the solution to fix the problems they created. Curses on both their houses.
Now the blame-game is coming from the Romney camp. In an interview with Candy Crowley, Romney adviser Carlos Gutierrez first attacked Romney for his remarks about “gifts” by Obama to buy votes. On this Romney is correct despite what some Republicans who are trying to position themselves for 2016 are saying. Then Gutierrez goes further off the rails. Like so many Establishment Republicans, he does not understand the mood of millions of conservatives who once formed the foundation of the Republican Party and gave it substantial victories in past elections, 2010 being the most recent:
“I think we lost the election because the far right of this party has taken the party to a place that it doesn’t belong. We are the party of prosperity, of growth, of tolerance.
