The Blame Game Redux

There were lots of "stories" being told right after the election that tried to make the losers feel better, like Democrats Won Because They Were Better Republicans than Republicans.

Josh Marshall is cataloging a new story that's making the rounds, and it's not the Blame Iraq First one I noted the other day:
Let's first take note that the 'blame the American people for Bush's screw-ups' meme has definitely hit the big time. It's not Bush who bit off more than he could chew or did something incredibly stupid or screwed things up in a way that defies all imagining. Bush's 'error' here is not realizing in advance that the American people would betray him as he was marching into history. The 'tragedy' is that Bush "bit off more than the American people were willing to chew." That just takes my breath away.
