    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.

    How many states had seceeded from the Union when Abe Lincoln took office, asswipe. He "inherted" a far bigger mess than Obama could ever imagine. You didn't see Abe blaming Buchanan for the mess he had to clean up.

    When does the buck begin stopping with Obama?

    Get your nose off his ass for a moment and smell reality.

    Comical to say the least. We are in this mess because of our government pushing sub primes. Yes One party bares a bit more responsibility. they blocked any reform on the basis of race.

    I see your flapping your rubbery lips 120 miles per hour, but I don't hear you saying anything.

    WTH does what you said have to do with my post?

    This thing didn't occur in a vacuum, Bush started the mess, Obama is attempting to fix it.

    When have you people EVER laid ANY responsibility of this on Bush?

    Up to his eighth year in office, pundits such as Hannity were STILL blaming Clinton for things.

    Do you need me to pull it up?

    Snap out of it!!

    The economy had bottomed out when Obama took office. The day he took office was the best day for the economy and it was downhill after that.
    He took a minor recession and turned it into the longest period of economic decline since the 1970s.

    At least the left is admitting Obama is a failure. That's some kind of progress, Iguess.

    You want real blame? Try the progressive movement when the 16th and 17th Amendments were added to the US Constitution to usurp the 9th and 10th. It's been a slow, steady, progressive ride down a slippery slope ever since.

    Actually, the truth would go more like this:

    The economy is going to ebb and flow per its own natural order, little effected by the acts of presidents and other politicians, at least with regard to short-term results.

    The roots of the December 2007 recession may go back decades, the consequence of economic policies from both sides of the political spectrum.

    GWB didn’t cause the December 2007 recession – it would be ridiculous to say so; equally ridiculous is the idea that Obama is somehow responsible for the current economic situation, or to expect him to ‘fix’ it in just two years – or four, for that matter.

    Needless to say the above truth will go ignored, the state of the economy being too powerful a political weapon.
