    Poll: George W. Bush still gets blamed for economic woes - The Oval: Tracking the Obama presidency

    In a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday, more than a third of those surveyed said George W. Bush deserved a great deal of the blame for economic woes and a third said he should get a moderate amount of it. Not quite another third called that unfair, saying Bush warranted not much or none of the responsibility.

    The 71% saying Bush should get blamed was a modest decline from the 80% who felt that way about a year ago, in July 2009.

    What about President Obama?

    In the July 2009 poll, a third, 32%, said he should shoulder a great deal or moderate amount of the blame

    Bush was an idiot who I didn't think would lose the "Idiot Trophy" for decades....Then Obama came along.

    Obama has helped the economy with the stimulus.

    This is proven fact.

    Bush gave us this and did nothing to ward off the mess.


    No one will EVER forget Bush standing in front of the nation looking scared and announcing the bailout of the banks.

    Yeah I'll never forget that one but the image of him looking bewildered and scared, while reading My Pet Goat while the nation was under attack on 9/11 is burned in my memory even deeper.

    I remember, before the 2000 election, SNL did a skit with Bush standing in the oval office, which was on fire, and apologizing to the American people for the wars and the recession and whatnot. I wonder if they could have known how absolutely prophetic they were being.

    Blame Bush? That is irrelevant, facts are facts no matter how many right wing pundits say otherwise.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH,

    Then there are those who shun ANY responsibility for what they helped do to the country by voting for the likes of Bush.

    They blamed Carter and Clinton for EVERYTHING for decades and now smear their mascara and sob and bleat "leave Bush Alone". They can NEVER accept the blame they deserve for fucking nearly EVERTHING up in this country.

    They just want Obama to pretend its all his fault and fix everything and then give the credit for the fixes to their next republican candidate.

    This is only because people don't understand that it's the congress and not so much the President. And we all know who has run congress for most of the last 50 years.
