    CNN poll. The public still blames Bush for the economy

    Poll: Bush still blamed for economy

    CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - Poll: Bush still blamed for economy - Blogs from CNN.com

    In a New York Times/CBS News survey out Friday, 31 percent of Americans said the Bush administration is at fault for the current state of the economy while only 7 percent pointed their finger at President Obama and his team.

    An additional 23 percent said the fault lies with Wall Street institutions while 13 percent assign the blame to Congress. Nearly 10 percent said the blame lies with all of them.

    Snip...
    I agree with the 10% that blames all of them.

    It is somewhat depressing that only 10% can see to blame everyone.

    Re: CNN poll. The public still blames Bush for the economy

    Fact is the economic crisis is part Bush, Part Both houses of congress, wall street, the banking industry, and finally Obama.

    The latest numbers other than from the Obamedia CNN pollsters show a trust rate of Obama on Economic Crisis of only 28%.

    Ths point here should not be who started it but who's doing the right thing to fix it and it sure as hell is not tax and spend us into depression Obama and the Liberals out of control Congress, or the Republicans we are not hearing the truth from load and clear as is needed to the people to say enough to to the crazy policies and thought process that makes believe raising taxes can whelp when history clearly shows it only hurts.

    What a bunch of dumb assses all around.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 25% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove which gives Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15
    I'd call the a rating of F.

    polls are one thing

    they depend so much on WHOM you ask and exactly HOW you phrase it

    but virginia, new jersey and massachusetts are something else

    the only numbers that count

    and the PARTY of bush has gained TWENTY FIVE to THIRTY points in those 2 blue commonwealths and probably the most bellwether state in the union since barack hussein obama became president

    party on, progressives

    It's sort of like nobody lives in reality or something.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Its the fault of Wall Street for taking the risks that nearly destroyed them in the first place. People blame government for problems in the economy because they are the biggest scapegoats around. The President got blamed for it, because he is the countries leader, and Congress gets blamed for not being lifelong economists who try to predict this sort of thing (and still occasionally fail). Then of course, you have to factor in that everyone is human, and you get blame being thrown all of the place.

    Thats funny, the people in the original story most resembled one extreme, being stupidly partisan. You represent the group on the other side of the political spectrum.

    Neither side is right, and your entire post was nothing but partisan trash.

    The Rassmussen poll is the only one that does this, and is the only one that constantly spins the results to make the GOP look better and the Dems look worse.

    Note what they do: They take the hardcore extremists who hate Obama and the hardcore extremists who love Obama and compare the two, ignoring the vast majority of everyone else.

    All this says is that there are more extremists who hate him than love him. It tells us nothing about the population as a whole. It's absolutely misleading and, I might say, somewhat dishonest.

    The seeds of it were planted before George the second, he just fertilized and pruned them.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Misleading headline. 31% of the public blaming Bush is not the same as the public blaming bush.

    It's dumb to play the blame game here when there are so many complex factors involved anyways.
