    CNN;Blame for recession shifting to democrats.

    Does this mean blame Bush is hurting Obama and the democrats or is the truth being seen?



    CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - CNN Poll: Blame for recession shifting from GOP to Democrats - Blogs from CNN.com


    A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday morning indicates that 38 percent of the public blames Republicans for the country's current economic problems. That's down 15 points from May, when 53 percent blamed the GOP. According to the poll 27 percent now blame the Democrats for the recession, up 6 points from May. Twenty-seven percent now say both parties are responsible for the economic mess.

    "The bad news for the Democrats is that the number of Americans who hold the GOP exclusively responsible for the recession has been steadily falling by about two to three points per month," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "At that rate, only a handful of voters will blame the economy on the Republicans by the time next year's midterm elections roll around."

    Thirty-six percent of people questioned say that President Barack Obama's policies have improved economic conditions, with 28 percent feeling that the president's programs have made things worse, and 35 percent saying what he's done has had no effect on the economy.

    I think it means that more of the American public is finally shaking off all the glitz and glamour of the messianic image Obama was able to infuse into the American psyche, and are now beginning to realize that the man puts on his pants one leg at a time like everybody else, and that flowery oratory is sometimes just flowery oratory without any substance behind it.

    In other words, there is a limit to how much some people are willing to be played for fools and some do eventually wake up to the reality of a situation.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That it is not just Bush. All we hear from Obama is I can't fix it and it is Bush's fault. Obama came to congress in 2006 that is when the dems took over the majority yet they have no fault it is all Bush according to Obama.

    Can you provide a historical context where it was 8 years?

    The Democrats' problem is that while they are certainly doing everything in their power to make 1984 a reality, with them in charge, the problem is that they've invented Goldstein before conditioning the people to hate him unreservedly.

    Bush is no Goldstein and the people aren't going to watch their Messiah, who they elected to rescue them and create heaven on earth, fail and cheer him on anyway.

    And the Messiah is failing, in a big way.

    Just wait until his tax increases take effect this New Year's Eve.
