    Bush isn't in office, nor is Reagan. You seem to have a problem understanding that reality. The Obama results are on the ballot and the American people are waking up

    Lets see;
    1: Blame Republicans. Check.
    2: Absolve Democrats. Check.
    3: Defend The Obama. Check.

    Excellent work - your masters are proud!

    What I understand is that you want to blame Obama for a recession that hit long before he became President, and that you have no idea what should be done about the economy but you are full of criticism. That about it?

    No, I want to blame Obama for the lies and his inability to fix the problem he claimed he had the answers to. You bought the rhetoric, I didn't. Obama is a community organizer and not a leader. He had no leadership skills and that is showing now. Results matter, not rhetoric, remember that

    At what time will you hold The Obama responsible for the economy?

    Lies? What lies? Try to be specific.

    And when problem did Obama claim he was going to fix? Again, please be specific.

    Nooo.. I wouldn't worry that much. I know it seems like things are getting worse, but if you listen carefully to Bernanke and the media, it's clear that we've just had a string of bad luck.

    I mean, first there was that "bump in the road,"
    then we had that "temporary stutter" -- just as things were going to take off!
    Then... boom! "Soft Patch."

    I chuckled a bit on that one, I mean ain't that just our luck?
    Who else, right?

    I'm not sure what's causing things now, probably just a "hicup"... at worst a "minor setback." I really doubt we're in for a "stutter" or anything like that.

    But cheer up! Bernanke will explain it all soon, you'll see!

    I hold Obama responsible for doing what he can do. It's as simple as that. The economy would probably be better if he had done a significantly larger stimulus, but realistically he probably couldn't have gotten more than he did ... since he needed at least token republican support. The debt situation would not be quite so bad if he had been able to roll back some of the Bush tax cuts, but the republicans would not allow that. The markets would not be tanking if he had signed the $4 trillion debt extension deal he was offering, but the republicans would not have that. The health care reform law would have been better, and would have saved more, if it had a public option, but the republicans would not have that. Financial reform legislation would have been stronger, but republicans would not allow that. The consumer protection agency could have had more teeth, but republicans will not allow that.

    Are you seeing a trend here?
