First of all, it’s pretty hilarious that the Republicans would even CONSIDER running another Bush.
But listen, I’m not naive enough to say that Obama is personally responsible for all of this. But could you imagine if things had gone the other way? Would be be held responsible? Of course he would! So fuck you he gets the credit.
And yet, he doesn’t really get the credit. Because the Democrats are horrible at marketing! They’re like the anti-Don Draper. Bill Cosby’s lawyer has done a better job of putting out a narrative than the Democrats. No one pats themselves on the backs like Republicans. They lose wars yet fly onto air craft carriers talking about “Mission Accomplished”! They know how to dap themselves up!
Anyway, could you imagine if Mitt had won? And then this happens? No matter what airport you’d fly into, it would be called Mitt Romney airport. Your kids would all go to Romney elementary and Romney middle school, and the White House would be located in Romney DC.
But that didn’t happen. And this is Obama’s. I think history will look kindly on him. Unless of course in a few years we’re all speaking ISIS.
