Jeremy Schaill: GOP Is Angry That Obama Didn't Praise Bush in Speech on Iraq

From The Nation --

During his Oval Office Address on Tuesday night, President Obama gave
a nod to former President George W. Bush in saying that, "No one could
doubt President Bush's support for our troops, or his love of country
and commitment to our security." But apparently that wasn't enough for
the GOP, who are now complaining that Obama didn't praise Bush
heartily enough. Jeremy Scahill joined Keith Olbermann on
Countdown last night to talk about the GOP's reaction to
Obama's speech.

Bush is one of the last people who deserve thanks for his war efforts
in Iraq, Scahill says. "The blame should be shared across the board,
but George Bush is number one responsible for this and deserves no
thanks from anyone," he explains, "except people that can be described
as enemies of this country and of security in the world."
