    Americans Still Blame Bush More Than Obama for Bad Economy

    About half of Republicans blame Bush
    by Frank Newport
    PRINCETON, NJ -- Americans continue to place more blame for the nation's economic problems on George W. Bush than on Barack Obama, even though Bush left office more than three years ago. The relative economic blame given to Bush versus Obama today is virtually the same as it was last September.

    And I fail to understand why that is relevant......

    If a pollster asked me who I thought was basically responsible for the recession, [knowing full well that we tend to rely on perception rather than pure facts], I would say Bush.

    Now if that same pollster asked who was responsible for NOT FIXING the economy as he promised, the answer is clearly Obama.

    Except for the truly insane far left who consider this question of utmost importance and a signal that Obama will win in a landslide, the majority of this country knows Bush isn't on the ticket. The majority understands the difference between then and now.

    Here is a poll question for you leftists:

    Is Barack Obama responsible for ANYTHING "bad" that has happened since he took office in January of 2009? Or is everything still Bush's fault?

    True but IF ASKED who was responsible for our terrible recovery there would only be one possible name left.

    Chew on that

    it was greed that was the trigger that started the obama/pelosi/reid depression. did millions of americans have to buy a 250,000 dollar home knowing they couldnt afford it?

    Obama was not a part of the collapse. His ideology maybe, but him personally? I dont see how anyone can say that.
