Blaming Obama For Everything

Conor is confused by an Instapundit post that seems to blame President Obama for a bigoted act against a South Carolina mosque. Outside the Beltway is pushing back too:

Barack Obama has made plenty of mistakes in his eighteen months in office, but to suggest that he is somehow responsible for a rise in what can only be described as religious bigotry is just absurd. Rather than trying to find yet another thing to blame the President for, conservatives would do well to condemn the bigotry and those within heir ranks who have been perpetuating it.

Instapundit blamed all of the future debt on Obama too - barely into his first year in office. He's a Republican partisan hack. Expecting some kind of fairness from him is absurd - something one has learned over the past few years. Personally, I find the message of the video above hard to beat.
