    The American Public Blames Bush and the GOP for the Financial Mess

    Americans Blame Bush and the GOP Not Obama for the Economy


    [​IMG]

    A new CNN/Opinion Dynamics poll released today should provide some hope to Democrats and cause a bit of concern for the GOP ahead of the mid term elections. The poll revealed that a majority of Americans (53%) blame George W. Bush and the GOP not Barack Obama and the Democrats for the nation’s current economic problems.

    The CNN/ Opinion Dynamics poll asked a very simple question. Who do you hold responsible for the nation’s current economic problems George W. Bush and the GOP, or Barack Obama and the Democrats? Fifty three percent of respondents blamed Bush and the Republicans, while only 33% blamed Obama and the Democrats, 10% blamed both parties, 3% said neither, and 1% were not sure.

    EVERYbody drove the economy into the ditch. It was a true national effort supported wholeheartedly by leaders from both sides of the aisle.

    And it wasn't just politicos, it was

    every

    single

    one

    of us.

    Playing blame is about as retarded a response as I can imagine.

    No wonder we wound up in this mess.
