Yup - Jan has did it. She's blaming President Obama for her inability to write.

The Republicans have blamed President Obama for everything bad (or even remotely less than positive) happening in the U.S., from Acts of Bush like the economic mess and the never-ending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, to even Acts of God like the earthquake on the east coast today.

Now Arizona's governor, Jan Brewer, is blaming him for one of her personal failures.

From the Capitol Media Services via the East Valley Tribune, written by Howard Fischer -
If Jan Brewer does not get her book done in time for a Nov. 1 planned rollout, it will be the president's fault.
The governor told Capitol Media Services Monday she essentially had completed her writing of "Scorpions For Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure the Border.'' And then, "something came up.''

"I'm working away, trying to get this all done on the weekends and late at night, trying to get it done, and all of a sudden, here we go: He starts it all up again,'' Brewer said.


"She [co-writer Jessica Gavora] hears me and I hear her, and we write it, and I write and she give me a copy of what we've all come up with,'' the governor explained. "And then I rewrite it and re-edit it and then have got to check all the facts and make sure that everything is correct -- and colorful -- and that I don't slam anybody too hard.''
Note: If I could italicize the "Jan has did it" part of the title of this post, I would do so.  I know it's grammatically incorrect.  However, that's the Governor's speech pattern, which is why I used that construction.

Most Arizona-based readers will be aware of that, but readers from all over the globe find their ways here.

The Democrats blame Republican George W. Bush. The Republicans blame Democrat Obama. It is almost as if nobody is taking responsiblity...

Wait. Nobody IS taking responsibility.

that sounds like false equivalency...Pres. Bush screwed us all and hell yes I blame that ASS; now Repubs are blaming Pres. Obama. Pretty amazing this thing called 'selective memory' of some people. I think Pres. Obama IS taking responsibility-- he's kept us out of the some deep(er) economic holes despite Repub antics all the way.
