Hugh Hewitt Blames Obama for Detroit Near-Disaster, but Whither Dubya?

Unsurprisingly, the Right is blaming President Barack Obama for the Christmas Day terrorist attack of an airliner flying from Amsterdam to Detroit. Our local yakmouth Hugh Hewitt was babbling on about it two days ago on his radio show, agreeing with a caller that racial profiling of Muslims is necessary but not for Americans. As he was going to a commercial break, Hugh Hypocrite was braying that he was blaming Obama, Hillary Clinton, and some other liberal demons for the attack.

My question to Baby Hewie acolytes: did he also blame President George W. Bush for 9/11 when they happened, and the colossal failure of our security system then? If not, why not? Is it because Hewie is a double-standard dipshit, or because there's honestly a difference between the New York and Detroit attacks? Inquiring minds want to know!
