Maddow: Russia invading Ukraine? That’s totally on Bush

On the “table of options” for possible ways John Kerry and others might respond to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, I listed “blame Bush” three times for a reason:

Talking about her new documentary, “Why We Did It,” involving circumstances leading to the Iraq War, Maddow told MSNBC colleague Andrea Mitchell that the Bush administration is largely responsible for the nation’s current course overseas.

“The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on,” she told Mitchell. “And the American people are against those wars.”

“Those are the determinative constraints for our thinking about everything,” she continued, “from Crimea, to Syria, to what the overall size of the U.S. military is.”

Just a couple of years ago, Maddow blasted Romney for daring to say that Putin and Russia could possibly be any more dangerous than Tickle-Me-Elmo in the era of President Peaceprize:

I can appreciate why the Romney campaign would try to make Obama’s “hot mic” story interesting, but the problem is the former governor just doesn’t have any real policy chops in this area. He’s out of his depth, and struggles when the subject takes center stage.

It’s not just that Romney is uninformed; it’s that he hasn’t figured out how to fake it.

Romney was right and those mocking him were wrong, so now that’s Bush’s fault? Go figure.
