Quote Of The Day

Some of you may recall that I'm not a fan of Rahm Emmanuel. There are days when he earns his pay, though, and yesterday was one of them. Justifying President Obama's decision to mention the problems his administration has inherited from the previous one, he said this, according to the Washington Post:

"The truth is that 98 percent of [Obama's] speeches are about the future, and 2 percent are about inheritance," Emanuel said. "Whereas I think for Republicans it's 2 percent about the future, and 98 percent hope that the people have amnesia."

Obama's New Tack: Blaming Bush

That quote encapsulates the Republican strategy as well as any I've seen. Sadly for Republicans, I don't think people have gotten amnesia quite yet.

Thank you, Rahm, for a very succinct assessment.
