    Despite the extensive campaign by the right to lay our economic problems at Obama's feet, the American people are too smart for them.

    They rightly blame Bush for our economic problems by a significant margin, including 49% of Republicans.

    GallupPRINCETON, NJ -- Americans continue to place more blame for the nation's economic problems on George W. Bush than on Barack Obama, even though Bush left office more than three years ago. The relative economic blame given to Bush versus Obama today is virtually the same as it was last September.

    Independents are substantially more likely to blame Bush (67%) than to blame Obama (51%) for the nation's economic problems, a finding that no doubt provides some comfort to the Obama re-election campaign. And fewer independents blame Obama now than did so last September (60%).

    This is why Obama should be running against the entire Republican party.

    Hey, if it didn't work before, it's bound not to work again! Why re-think a failing policy?

    I blame Dumbya. He ruined Texas and destroyed America. Thanks Republicans for voting him into office 2X.

    I agree. As weird as it sounds, he needs to spend less time on Romney as an individual, and more time on the Rupublican Party as a whole.

    Do you want to send the memo to Axelrove at headquarters, or should I?

    No, slight differences. Jesus: Turned water into wine, Bush: turned surplus into deficit. Jesus: was all powerful, Bush: so weak a desert dwelling goat herder thought us weak enough to attack us on our soil, Jesus: all knowing, Bush: knows nothing.

    Jesus made 'manna' too, and if he'd been bush he'd have known that the "YELLOW CAKE" was a fake of his 'dual nationals' making and not taken us to war over it. LOL


    Jesus was also against going into debt and wouldn't have approved it for wars and he was against lies that got us there.

    Jesus promoted "paying unto ceasar what is ceasars" so he wouldn't have reduced taxes from the already rich then cut off the poor.

    GEEEEEZ UZ !!! The list of differences between this 'christian' Bush and the man Jesus that started christianity are pretty damn broad. Seems to be a major hole in the theory that Bush 'WAS CHOSEN BIGOD". LOL

    This is THE crucial metric to measure President Obama's chances of reelection.

    If on election day - a majority of Americans still blame Bush for the current (still) weak state of the economy - President Obama will win.

    It's that simple.

    That's why the Repubs have spent the last few years working so desperately to try to blame Bush's messes on President Obama.

    Exactly. It's also why Mitt Romney is keeping his "economic plans" so vague because they are basically Bush's economics on steroids.
