Wingnuts give Taft blame for Bush failings

From daily KOS, notorious rightwing crank Grover Norquist speaks out on Ohio and Taft:

"Q: What are the key, or most problematic, battleground states?

Norquist: The key battleground states. We have to hold Ohio. OK? We have an idiot, stupid, corrupt, dumb, rotten, Republican governor in the state, who's been busy looting the state, and raising taxes, and lying to gun owners.

And his state is the only state in the nation that's lost jobs and isn't recovering, because he's been beating the economy to death in the state! But he's not on the ballot! George Bush is on the ballot.

And we've got to overcome, what we've had in Illinois, too, which is a Republican governor busy raising taxes and pissing everybody off, and now we've got that in Ohio.

It's not helpful. He should be taken out and horsewhipped."

An audio version of the same is here.

Now Taft deserves a lot a blame for the economic situation in Ohio, and so does the Larry Householder, Doug White and the overwhelming majority of wingnuts in the General Assembly. But so does the RNC. Between the Ohio Republicans and the national Repubicans, they have had a totally open playing field in Ohio for four years - and blew it! Norquist is simply looking for a way for Bush to wiggle off the hook.
