Stop the Whining

Look, we know Obama doesn’t like George Bush. We know he doesn’t agree with Bush’s policies. He won an election. Good for him. But his constant whining about what he inherited from Bush is becoming really tiresome and more than a little tacky. From last night’s 60 Minutes:

BARACK OBAMA: (SIGH) The– the fact that– you are often confronted with bad choices that flow from less than optimal decisions made a year ago, two years ago, five years ago, when you weren’t here. A lot of times, when things land at my desk– it’s a choice between bad and worse. And as somebody pointed out to me– the only things that land on my desk are tough decisions. Because, if they were easy decisions, somebody down the food chain’s already made them.”
