Spin of the day: Slate's Matt Yglesias says can't blame Obama for 'inheriting'…himself

Oh, honey. Bless your heart.

We thought hipsters are, well, hip to that whole irony thing. Evidently not. Did he tweet that with a straight face (or straight fingers)? Good grief! This after years and years of the Left blaming President Bush; so much so that it has become a punchline. Blame Boooooosh! They have told us over and over that President Obama “inherited” everything from President Bush, who was responsible for absolutely everything wrong in the entire world. In perpetuity. His wizard wand of evil had no bounds! Never mind that Democrats were in control of both houses for the last two years of his second term.

Twitter users attempt to set the oh-so-precious Yglesias straight.

D’oh! Your spinning is super precious, Matt. Also, side-splitting!

    2006-2008, Full Dem Congress; Bush’s fault.

    2010-2012 Split Congress; but can’t be Obama’s fault?

    Ok, sorry. I thought Obama was at least HALF the leader Bush was… if you’re saying he isn’t even that then who am I to argue?

    Or are we giving Bush a pass for the economic collapse in 2008 as it wasn’t his fault and we’re blaming the Dem controlled Congress?

    Either way I’ll agree.

    I’m impressed that Matt Yglesias even knows what a divided government is! Or did he just have a “stumbled upon” moment?
