Howard Dean, who left the presidential race when he proved to be even too crazy for the radical wing of the Democratic Party, says that George W. Bush is to blame for the bombings in Spain:
The president was the one who dragged our troops to Iraq, which apparently has been a factor in the death of 200 Spaniards over the weekend.
Of course, this is right in step with Dean's (and his party's) blame-America-first strategy. How about the bloodthirsty terrorists? Is it possible that maybe they were to blame for the bombs they planted in civilian passenger trains? No, certainly not. They are merely compelled by forces beyond their control. In keeping with leftist, Democrat ideology, nobody is ever responsible for what they do wrong--except for Republicans, of course. They're responsible for what they do wrong and what everyone else does wrong.

Another question I'd like to ask the delusional, deservedly-obscure-again Dr. Dean: How can George W. Bush be blamed for the bombing in Spain when the United States has supposedly been acting unilaterally in Iraq? What would Spain even have to do with it? And as long as we're blaming Americans, why not blame Bill Clinton, since Al Qaida has taken responsibility for the attack, and evidence is again showing that Clinton passed up the opportunity to kill or capture Osama Bin Laden?

This is what you'll get when you pull the donkey lever in November: lots of inaction, self-loathing, and finger-pointing, while we become the world's Carteresque punching bag again.
