It's still Bush's fault

Via Rhymes With Right:

Afghanistan was dubbed ‘Obama’s War’ last night after it was revealed that as many American soldiers have died in the conflict during his presidency as during George Bush’s entire time in office.

According to the latest death tally, 575 U.S. troops have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the 20 months since Barack Obama took office in January last year.

That is the same number of fatalities the U.S. military suffered under Mr Bush, who launched the Afghan invasion nine years ago in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.

With his White House honeymoon well and truly over, Mr Obama is no longer able to blame his country’s travails on the previous administration. (Source.)

As RWR notes, "this statistic is neither an indictment nor an endorsement of Obama's policies in Afghanistan or Iraq." It's a statement about pathetically biased our MSM is.
