That's much closer to the truth than what we currently hear from the right, including many self-proclaimed Tea-party people/supporters. They've kinda admitted it with their "Obama made it worse" meme, but that's still not the truth. Bush and his cronies wrecked the economy so bad it will take a lot more than just Obama and/or 4 years to properly repair it. This is why I can't and won't take tea-party people seriously. Not the ones who constantly put out the message that Obama made all things bad all of a sudden, which just happens to be just about all of them. The right will always spin and twist and attempt to wiggle their way out of responsibility, just like they did when they absolutely abandoned Bush after staunchly supporting him for 7 years straight. This isn't the party that Reagan would recognize, although it is the party that Reagan created.
