A statute of limitations

President Obama said today his $3.8 trillion budget "reflects the serious challenges" facing the United States, including a massive debt bequeathed by the George W. Bush administration.

Obama did not mention Bush by name, but did blame "the previous administration" and previous Congresses for "a decade of profligacy" that has created an overall debt of more than $12 trillion.

There should be a one year statute of limitations on blaming your predecessor . . . particularly when you quadruple your predecessor's deficits and the previous Congress was run by your allies Reid and Pelosi.
