Bush Derangement Syndrome, 2011

Megan McArdle catches the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities blaming President Bush for laws Obama signed. 

As McArdle notes, it's a bit much to label the projected debt represented by the orange segment "Bush-Era Tax Cuts" when Obama signed them into law in December, and presumably will let them lapse at the end of 2012.
