Obama Takes A Break From Blaming Bush, Republicans to Advise Graduates to Not Make Excuses

In a classic pot meet kettle moment, the One has the amazing audacity to tell high school students not to make any excuses. It is amazing because over the past year-and-a-half, Obama has made a career out of blaming Bush for all of his failures for not turning the economy around yet and other shortcomings:

So, today, you all have a rare and valuable chance to pursue your own passions, chase your own dreams without incurring a mountain of debt.  What an incredible gift.  So you’ve got no excuse for giving anything less than your best effort.  (Applause.)  No excuses.   

That’s my second piece of advice, very simple:  Don’t make excuses.  Take responsibility not just for your successes; take responsibility where you fall short as well. 

This is especially rich coming from someone who is endanger being remembered for spending his entire first term blaming Bush and Republicans, according to a writer from Maybe he should take his own advice and lead by example. Hmmm.
