Like Obama Used Bush As A Punching Bag, So Will Hillary Use Obama

For years, President Obama has blamed his predecessor, George W. Bush, for everything that was wrong when he took office and for everything that continues to be wrong while he's been in office.  Just recently he took another shot at Bush for not having a SOFA (Status Of Forces Agreement) in Iraq; resulting in a complete withdrawal of troops and, subsequently, giving rise to the ISIS problem we have today.  Of course, Obama had 3 years to come to a SOFA before troops had to be totally removed from Iraq in 2011.

Now, enters Hillary Clinton as a 2016 candidate.  In a recent interview with Atlantic magazine, she summed up Obama's foreign policy as simply "Don't do stupid shit."  Then she went on to further criticize him by saying: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.”  Further, she blamed Obama's laid-back policy in Syria for the rise of ISIS in that country and its spread to Iraq.

So, there you have it.  Obama blames Bush for ISIS and Hillary blames Barack, and there are still over 2 years before the 2016 election. With all the problems associated with the current administration, Hillary has a whole quiver full of arrows she can aim at the President in order to distance herself from him before 2016.


Obama adjusts Iraq narrative, now blames Bush for troop withdrawal:
