Blame Bush "Forever," Says Madeleine Albright

Well, that question is answered


Democrats should blame George W. Bush "forever" for the nation's problems, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright joked at a Barack Obama campaign rally.

In video posted by a conservative group, Albright discusses traveling to a foreign policy panel event in Missouri, where a man asked her how long Democrats would continue to point the finger at the George W. Bush administration.

"I was in Missouri, speaking on behalf of president Truman and the foundation, and I kind of assumed it was a Democratic audience and I was saying many things about the previous administration, some of which I said here," Albright said. "All of a sudden, this man gets up and says: 'So how long are you people going to blame the previous administration?' And I said: 'Forever.'"
