President Obama needs to play this card while he still can:
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs attempted to deflect blame for the AIG bonus scandal away from the Obama administration by reminding reporters that Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner inherited a bad situation and had to make the best of it when he took over from the Bush administration.
Neglecting to mention, of course, that it was a Democratic Congress that passed the bailout legislation last fall.
True progressives are starting to get it. True conservatives saw this coming all along.
