Sunday Funday: Eric Greitens Blames George Soros Edition

8.5 minutes of a great president and some admirers

“Party of Responsibility” leader in Missouri, Gov. Eric Greitens has a bit of a different take on how one should take responsibility for one’s actions.

Greitens was outed by the ex-husband of a woman whom Greitens threatened to blackmail. The case took a surprising turn Thursday when Greitens was seen being taken into custody by the St.Louis sheriff in Missouri after he was indicted for charges connected with the threatened blackmail.

Greitens blamed the indictment on the St. Louis prosecutor which was BS because grand juries indict, prosecutors do not. So Greitens had to find someone else to blame it on. So reaching back a few years Greitens pulled out one of the Republicans favorite old boogeymen, George Soros. Soros had been in the closet so long he had to be dusted off.

Will he serve the purpose as scapegoat for the Party of Responsibility? Lots of people have believed it in the past. BTW denizens of the Republican’s boogeyman closet include Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi up front. Buried deep we find Jimmy Carter, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch. They are used on special occasions.
