According to Condi Rice, it’s a good thing President Obama still relies on the Bush administration leftovers:
“There’s a lot of continuity in the policies pursued.”
Clearly Prez O could never have accomplished something as huge as the demise of Osama Bin Laden without GW’s meticulous organizing and masterful plans, setting the stage for the whole operation. See, Bush had to make some “very, very hard calls that frankly helped to set this up,” see.
How can we ever thank BushCo. Oh I know. Prosecute.
Regarding Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, George Bush was, you know, too busy to tend to important stuff like that:
“Well, President Bush had a lot on his plate.”
Yeah, like souffle.
But President Obama was still able to handle the enormity of finding and killing Bin Laden, because he only had a measly couple of things on his plate, like cleaning up the economic disaster that BushCo saddled him with; Bush’s wars; Bush’s huge deficits; Bush’s Great Recession; Bush’s unemployment numbers; Bush’s torture policies; Bush’s alienation of the entire world… for starters.
Oh, and let’s not forget Rummy. Condi’s just a tad irked at him:
“Don doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”
