      "Pass on this one"

      Typical New Yorker; Bush has been gone for 2 years but they still manage to blame him for something nearly every week. After that there is an exposee of corruption in the Afghan government (what a shocka) where Obama, the biggest supporter of the government there, is barely mentioned.
