    When I look at Obama I am in awe of the smile and the rhetoric. He truly cares and thus the results are irrelevant. We have to get Bush out of the WH now so as to not disparage Obama's impeccable reputation and outstanding economic results

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!

    I suppose using your logic that Obama's JAR is still 39% because outdated sources you post say so means Bush is still in office, eh?
    Right, and just think how much Bush added to the debt in 2010 and 2011. We have to get him out of the office so Obama doesn't get the blame for the following

    After reading all this negative talk about George Bush, and these people have no reason to lie, I'm certainly not going to vote for him in 2012!!

    Whoaaa .... Reagan inherited 7.5% unemployment, not 10.8%. And that "close to zero inflation" is a benefit of Bush's Great Recession.

    Exactly right. I won't be voting for Reagan in 2012 either. We do have to get Bush out of the WH though as we cannot have "our" President taking the blame for these results

    Ummm, spending went down in 2010.

    Great information, I will have to remember that in my argument with other conservatives. Doubt they will be smart enough to know that 2009 had TARP and Stimulus spending, Way to go!!

    I can't help if you wish to ignore that while unemployment has grown 17% under Obama, it nearly doubled under Bush.

    Not all, but certainly most. The deficit was expected to grow by $1.2 trillion in FY2009 before Obama even became president. Leave it to a Conservative to blame someone other than Bush for the results of Bush's budget.

    You're already in the group of Conservatives who call 41%, "39%".

    You are right, now if we can only get Bush out of the Wh Obama won't have to be blamed for the following

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!

    There is no reason for a 39% approval rating as all the 2011 numbers belong to Bush

    Guess you don't know that 2010 also had stimulus money spent, huh?

    What a pity.
