In '08 we had McAmnesty and Oblabla. Neither having ANY administrative Record to speak of what so ever. Of course, in that scenario the slickest platitudes usually win, and they did, and we got Oblabla.
Now we have 2 men with a Record; 1 with a record of success as a business man and state Governor, the other trying to avoid his record of failure.
For years now we've heard nothing but: "It's Bush's fault", "it's the republican's fault", and most recently "it's the fault of the guy who made that anti-Islam movie".
What does a person look like who bases their success on their ability to blame others for their own poor performance, their bad decisions? Oblabla.
