Republicans blame Obama for everything

July 25, 2014
Marietta Times

I hope every voter was watching FOX news on July 17th when the airplane was shot down over Ukraine. Within two hours of this international disaster, Republican leaders and FOX news "experts" were blaming President Obama for the deaths of the 298 passengers on board. They showed, over and over and over, President Reagan's response to the downing of KAL 007 in 1983 as an example of "true leadership". They failed to report that the response came four days after the plane went down and Mr. Reagan attended three political fundraisers during that time. They forgot that the United States, under President Reagan in 1988, accidently shot down an Iranian airliner killing 275 innocent civilian passengers. President Reagan's response - "It was an understandable accident" and denounced any suggestion that he should be held accountable. 275 innocent people were killed but any hint of a "scandal" was quickly dismissed by the Republicans.
