Going to be a long night for liberals.
    Nothing you said responds to the points mentioned

    So GOP and Tea Party people.... how does it feel to be more unpopular than Obama?

    or how about this guy:

    But perhaps the most persistent — and thought-provoking — conservative critic of the party has been Bruce Bartlett. Mr. Bartlett has worked for Jack Kemp and Presidents Reagan and George H. W. Bush. He has been a fellow at the Cato Institute and the Heritage Foundation. He wants the estate tax to be reduced, and he thinks that President Obama should not have taken on health reform or climate change this year.
    Above all, however, he thinks that the Republican Party no longer has a credible economic policy. It continues to advocate tax cuts even though the recent Bush tax cuts led to only mediocre economic growth and huge deficits. (Numbers from the Congressional Budget Office show that Mr. Bush’s policies are responsible for far more of the projected deficits than Mr. Obama’s.)

    Here's another Conservative chiming in ...


    So a new cynicism greets the president on his bus tour through the heartland. Still, even at this late date it is fair to ask: In purely economic terms, how much of this crisis is really Obama's problem, and how much better might he have done to fix it? The answer is: probably not that much.

    "A long, long period of halting and slow growth was baked in the cake when he took office," said Harvard University economist Kenneth Rogoff, a former adviser to Obama's 2008 GOP opponent, John McCain, and the co-author of an acclaimed 2009 book on the nature of economic crises, This Time is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly. "It's very difficult after such a huge credit bubble and financial collapse to recover all that much faster than we've been doing. It wouldn't have mattered if McCain had won. We would have been in a similar situation."

    Let me know when you want to get back to the present. The length you and other liberals will go to blame someone else for the failures of Obama. Bush didn't pass and sign the failed stimulus bill. Bush didn't shut down drilling in the Gulf. Bush didn't pass obamacare or sign it. Bush didn't spend 3.7 trillion dollars a year. Bush didn't see a downgrade of our credit. Seems like you and others want to ignore the present to divert to the past. That is getting old and apparently only 39% now agree with you.

    Nor is it growing like it should have spending over a trillion dollars and seeing 4 trillion added to the debt. Apparently spending that much money and generating these kind of results works for a liberal who has such low standards

    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! 39% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.

    Well maybe because we are still dealing with the effects of what happened when Bush was President and a ideological roadblock in Congress. Like so many riht leaning well respected economists have pointed out.

    I know Hannity disagrees though.

    What's done is done. Since these warnings were all over the place, President Bush must have known about this, so I would say he was an empty suit and had a failure of leadership by not handling the situation. Do you think it was a failure of leadership on his part or not?
