    Really?

    CNN Poll: Was Bush better president than Obama? – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    And a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday also indicates in the battle for Congress, Republicans hold large advantages over the Democrats among independents, men and blue-collar whites. The poll also indicates that Republicans are much more enthusiastic than Democrats to vote.

    By 47 to 45 percent, Americans say Obama is a better president than George W. Bush. But that two point margin is down from a 23 point advantage one year ago.

    "Democrats may want to think twice about bringing up former President George W. Bush's name while campaigning this year," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

    So Obama gets a pass on the resonsibility for how HIS stimulus money is spent?

    No. But it is no different than any president would have done. Bush spent millions to send us checks and that was also money lost. You're not making a case against Obama's actions, but against all such efforts by anyone. Only you act like it is just Obama. no president elected would have not tried a stimulus. All would have failed. And, we would have been harder on the president if he did not try a stimulus. That's who we are, who the electorate is.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Absence makes the heart grow fonder, but we've seen what happens when Bush is in office. Put him back and see how happy people are with him.

    Bush did not spend the money Obama is for that. You want to ignore the facts and figures. You sound like Obama look at Bush. Bush is past and Obama is now responsible.

    Bush didn't spend money? I think you're the one ignoring facts.

    you're also skipping the point. Presidents don't control the economy. But they are expected to do something. it's a lose lose situation for them. But more than anything else they have to be seen as doing something and hope they get lucky, which is why our presidents have always spent money at times like this. And if they don't, we make them pay.

    Now, you can play around and ignore this point, or you can try to answer it. Your choice.

    What I meant was Bush did not spend the amount of money for tax rebates that Obama is. Obama is so busy pointing fingers and blaming others he has failed at his job.
