Keith Olbermann and The Nation's Jeremy Scahill respond to the "revisionist historian", "credit where credit's due" right wingers who are demanding that everyone "thank Bush" after Obama's speech on Iraq this week. They've got some thanks for him alright, as in yeah, thanks a lot of your illegal invasion and wrecking our economy while enriching your defense contractor buddies. Thanks.... thanks for nothing.

John McCain, Stephen Hadley, Karl Rove, Dan Senor and the rest of these war mongers who think we should be praising Bush for invading a country that wasn't a threat to us and squandering our tax dollars should be ashamed of themselves, but that would imply that they have the capacity to feel shame.

Can you help us out?
