A poll, taken Aug. 18-22 shows more Americans still blame former President George W. Bush rather than Obama for the economic distress. Some 31 percent put the bulk of the blame on Obama, while 51 percent point to his Republican predecessor. Obama also fares better than Congress in the blame department. Some 44 percent put "a lot" or "most" of the blame on Republicans while 36 percent point to congressional Democrats. As to creating jobs, some 44 percent said they would trust Democrats to do a better job, while 42 percent said Republicans would. The silent Majority isn't taken its cues from Faux News or Rush Limbaugh, only the loud minority.
