No...there would be no reason to blame Bush if there is low Democratic voter turnout.

I don't think that's blame. I think it's the truth. We have a serious problem with voter apathy in this country. Even during the presidential election, nationwide voter turnout was 62% and that was a 40 year high. Nevada's was 58% for the general election and between 15-20% for the primaries. That's truly pathetic.

I guess McCain had a big ego too as the Cons sat out the last election due to voter apathy or maybe they just couldn't stand who was on the ticket?????

*This* is what you are calling "whining"?

Look, as president, I swore to uphold the Constitution, and part of that Constitution is a free press. We've got a tradition in this country of a press that oftentimes is opinionated. The golden age of an objective press was a pretty narrow span of time in our history. Before that, you had folks like Hearst who used their newspapers very intentionally to promote their viewpoints. I think Fox is part of that tradition — it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view. It's a point of view that I disagree with. It's a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world. But as an economic enterprise, it's been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number-one concern is, it's that Fox is very successful. >>

I just find it disingenuous to lay blame for voter apathy on Obama.

Voter turnout since 1960. Note also the number of people in the "voting age population as compared to "registered voters."
