"We still would have lost the election because we had 9 ½ percent unemployment," Pelosi told CNN Chief National Correspondent John King. "That came from the policies of George W. Bush and the Republican's support for his initiatives."Get that? It's George Bush's fault that the Democrats lost the midterm elections. Jesus wept, the Bush-blaming is so reflexive now that I'd like to be a fly on the wall at the Pelosi household just to hear the excuses:
- "Dinner got burned by the policies of George W. Bush."
- "The sink's clogged by the policies of George W. Bush."
- "The policies of George W. Bush spilled a glass of wine on the living room carpet."
