You can't fake that kind of bullshit, it takes real conviction.

We thought hipsters are, well, hip to that whole irony thing. Evidently not. Did he tweet that with a straight face (or straight fingers)? Good grief! This after years and years of the Left blaming President Bush; so much so that it has become a punchline. Blame Boooooosh! They have told us over and over that President Obama “inherited” everything from President Bush, who was responsible for absolutely everything wrong in the entire world. In perpetuity. His wizard wand of evil had no bounds! Never mind that Democrats were in control of both houses for the last two years of his second term.
Twitter users attempt to set the oh-so-precious Yglesias straight.
@mattyglesias lmao It's almost like you and your fellow Progs didn't blame Bush for everything that happened while he was in office.

@mattyglesias I'm impressed that liberals pretend Obama's 0% responsible after being president since January 2009…

No, @mattyglesias, nobody is saying Obama is 100% responsible for current jobs situation. We know it would be much worse without a R House.

@mattyglesias they're copying obama's 2008 strategy!

@mattyglesias How about you not acknowledging that 2 yrs of total Dem Govt control economic plans are still making things worse?????
