Media Critical of Trump for Using Obama Tactic – Blaming His Predecessor

President Donald Trump has been taking a considerable amount of criticism from members of the media and Democratic leaders for his criticism of the Obama administration.

What these criticisms miss, however, is that President Obama spent the better part of his first 100 days (and the seven-plus years that followed) blaming the Bush administrations for his problems.

The Washington Post published a report on March 14, 2009 about Obama’s constant finger-pointing at the previous administration:

It hasn’t taken long…for the Obama administration to begin talking about the unwelcome “inheritance” of its predecessor.

Over the past month, Obama has reminded the public at every turn that he is facing problems “inherited” from the Bush administration, using increasingly bracing language to describe the challenges his administration is up against. The “deepening economic crisis” that the president described six days after taking office became “a big mess” in remarks this month to graduating police cadets in Columbus, Ohio.

The Washington Post article–written just 52 days into the Obama presidency– cited several top Obama administration officials who also blamed the previous administration for their problems, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden.

Obama continued the practice of blaming the Bush administration for the problems that his administration faced for the remainder of his presidency.

Now, though, members of the media and Democrats think it’s unbecoming of President Trump to blame the previous administration for the problems he inherited.
