    Keep in mind that I am specifically asking about Obama, so do not include Congress or any other government institution when determining your opinion.

    I don't know....Some. I don't think anyone is without blame. I think the Cash for Clunkers was something of a mistake. It was a quick fix, where that money could have been used for something else that would have benefited long term... like increasing Student financial Aid, for example.

    It doesn't make a piss difference to me. In fact, it teaches me how dumb members are on here. It must have been you.

    I mostly blame the voters for the Obama/Democrats wreckage of the economy. The down slide started when the Democrats took over Congress and the economy turned much much weaker when Obama took over.

    Thank God the voters came to their senses and gave the Republicans the House to hold these big Democrat spenders in check. To bad they didn't also get the Senate where Harry is whacking off instead of putting House bills on the floor of the Senate that would improve the unemployment situation...etc.

    I'm thanking Republicans/voters for what little sign of an improving economy there is.

    And exactly what legislation weakened the economy at that point, and how exactly has things been better since Republicans took control of the House?

    I give President Obama 100% of the credit for an economy that's steadily growing with more jobs reported every single month. Its a far cry from what we saw just before he took office.

    We could be out of this mess completely if the GObP/repubs were not invested in the failure of our country. They have not produced even one jobs bill and they filibuster all jobs bills introduced by Dems. Most of them should be brought up on charges because they are de facto traitors.

    Yes, "Lumpy", please do explain how you came to that completely fictional account of the bush crash.
