‘Way to win . . . is not just by blaming Bush’

Citizen Staff Writer

A comment piece published in Monday’s Wall Street Journal was written by Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas and Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri. All three are Democrats.

In the commentary, the three delivered a couple of haymakers to President Bush’s administration and policies:

“Our nation is fighting a war in Iraq that has made us less safe. Our planet is imperiled by a global climate crisis that we have done little to combat. Our economy is sliding toward a recession. Wages aren’t keeping pace, as the cost of everything from health care to college is rising. Whether it’s a world-class education, a secure mortgage or a dignified retirement, too many Americans are seeing their dreams slip out of reach.”

And then, after blaming Bush for most everything, they wrote, “We know that the way to win elections is not just by blaming Mr. Bush.” Oh? So what was that litany of problems? Praise for Bush?

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
