TelePrompter Takes Responsibility for AIG Bonuses

Well, more or less, sorta.

President Barack Obama said he will take the blame for bonuses being paid at American International Group Inc. if it will settle an intense finger pointing under way over how such payments were possible at a company that has received tremendous taxpayer aid.

"Washington is all in a tizzy and everybody is pointing fingers at each other and saying it's their fault, the Democrats' fault, the Republicans' fault," he said at a town hall meeting Wednesday

REPUBLICANS? Ace reminds the TelePrompter:

...The only Republican in this mess is Olympia Snowe, whose contribution to the bill was language prohibiting the controversial bonuses.

It was a Democrat, Chris Dodd, who changed that language to permit the bonuses, at the behest of a Democrat, Tim Geithner, who was appointed by another Democrat, Barack Obama.

So who...exactly is saying it's the Republicans' fault except for our graciously blame-accepting president?

It was the TelePrompter that said it, Ace. Not the Savior.
