I thought it was all Bush's fault

Remember that bridge in Minnesota that collapsed last year? And remember how immediately after the MSM, DailyKos and the rest of the left wing wackjobs started pointing fingers? And remember how all the fingers were pointed at Bush and the war in Iraq?

As much as I dislike Bush, blaming him for this was beyond idiotic.

That was the knee-jerk left-wing reaction. Because there is a war, the bridge collapsed. Harry Reid said it, Nancy Pelosi said it and it was repeated numerous times by their MSM cohorts. And of course the left's plan to "fix" the problem was spend gazillions of dollars.

Some examples:

“In terms of infrastructure, where has the Republican Congress been on the WRDA bill for the past seven years?” - Senate Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.)

A better question is where was the Democrat majority held from 2001 to 2003? Hey weren't you part of the majority Senator?

“Since 9/11, we have taken our eye off the ball” - Senator Harry Reid

Uhm yea Senator, ya think? Should we instead have ignored 9/11 instead set out to inspect bridges?

Or my favorite one of all, blame global warming, which is what a MN Democrat Congressowman suggested when she said

Hortman speculated that 90-plus-degree heat Wednesday and the above-normal temperatures of the past two summers may have been a contributing factor. "Did the heat put extra strain on the steel?" Hortman said. "You wonder if this bridge was built to withstand the massive heat we have had this summer."

No Congresswoman, the bridge was built to withstand only temps in the 70s as up until Jan 19, 2001 the state of Minesotta had never experienced temps higher than 80 degrees. Is this really the quality of politican coming out of your state? Oh wait you have the world Walter Mondale, never mind.

Well what do you know. Today the news comes out that the bridge collapse had nothing to do with the war or Bush or with lack of funding or anything else the stooges with a "D" next to their name could dream up . Turns out it was a nothing more than a design flaw. Poor engineering was to blame. Poor engineering that would have occurred with or without 9/11, with or without Iraq and with or without Bush.

Once again proving the MSM and Democrat party have no purpose on this planet.
