    .

    The seeds of this disaster were sewn before Bush took office.

    He sure as hell didn't help, but this started before him.

    I am in the "all equally" category.

    Yes, the seeds were sown prior to Bush, but Bush watered them.

    And please don't say "CRA".

    Don't be one of those idiots.

    I'd say the CRA was a piece of it, but a small piece, and there were many pieces. This mess was, and is, cultural.

    Obama did not cause the high unemployment, despite bizarre efforts I have seen on the part of some people to retroactively blame him for the crash.

    Obama certainly carries some blame for the lack of a robust recovery from the crash. He is a significant factor in the "all equally" equation.

    The CRA was the tiniest of the small pieces.

    And the mess is global, not cultural.

    Congress + Obama = 39%
    Former President Bush = 26%

    Not looking good Luddite.
