    Lots of polls and blame to go around. Enough to keep partisans on both sides pointing fingers for years.
    What SHOULD matter at this point is why we are doing so poorly in our recovery. Blaming Bush is pointless to our recovery. The historians can decide who and what it will be viewed like later. In the meantime lets focus on the here and now and decide which path we need to take to expidite our recovery.

    All the posts about BOOOOOOOOOSH are just pointless. For example I believe Frank, dems and many spinless pubs are to blame but starting such threads serves no purpose as its water under the bridge now and blame cant fix shit. Congress and Obama can however.

    But it does matter in that many who contributed to the problem on both sides are still trying to do the same things that got us into this mess.
    And many are running for election or reelection.

    No one yet has produced any viable options/plans for fixing the mess.

    It will only continue and grow worse by following the current path.

    I have seen some ideas from both sides that might have helped. Sadly election season is not known for reason and comprimise.

    It matters enough to keep it in mind that Romney will not try Reaganomics or neo-con imperialism when he takes office.

    OK. Bush fucked up the economy. I'll accept that.

    But, after 3.5 fucking years, ANYONE who blames their lack of performance on a predecessor from 3.5 years prior is beyond incompetent.

    Shitcan the man. It is beyond time. He simply can't do the job and he readily admits that almost every single fucking day.

    Compromise has become a word the right cannot even say unless deriding someone for compromising.

    I dissagree. I believe he truly believes his policies would help if left to their own. That my friend, is even scarier than your position on Obama.
