    It's scheduled for sometime in December, right around the time that they officially cancel Christmas.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    The economy is crap because after all but 8 Senators signed it, President Clinton reversed the Glass–Steagall Act of the 1933. President Bush did not address it. The jury is still out whether or not President Obama will deal with it.

    But it's not just the President who has to deal with it. Congress has to write the bill that the President will sign into law. With the power special interests have over our Representatives and Senators, good luck getting that to happen.

    Yep. We are screwed. But wasn't it President Obama that projected negative rhetoric about special interest groups when he was running for office? The throne changes many hearts. They've all sold us out.

    The same folks who are blaming President Obama, failed to put any blame on President Bush for 8 years. How is this fair and importantly, why doesn't the mainstream media point this out?

    Now is not the time to put all the blame on the White House. He is trying. He may not have all the answers initially, but he is trying.

    I have no problems spending because in a capitalist system, those monies should return back into our economy. Companies are not hiring as they should and banks are not giving out many loans as they should to small / moderate businesses, college kids, and home owners.

    Fear is everywhere in our economy. We need this fear to lessen so businesses can start hiring again. There are jobs out there, but not general jobs that most workers fall into.

    We have too many specialty jobs. We need to also make businesses reestablish themselves domestically, by providing decent tax breaks, etc. If we can get overseas American companies to come back, this can also generate jobs. Our infrastructure is also suffering and in need of services domestically, which can produce jobs.

    Importantly, we need a majority in Congress to pass these measures ASAP! We don't need politicians delaying these measures on Capital Hill. However, no one talks about this rather it's easy to blame all on President Obama.

    Re: CNN Poll: Was Bush better president than Obama?

    Where's my quote? - gone. Without it I can still make a point I guess.

    I not only agree that we have to wait 'til *after* Obama's presidency before we can make sound judgments - but I think we have to reassess that judgment as the future changes directly due to his policies and decisions.

    But also keep in mind that the president isn't always *the reason* for most things being done (good or bad) - example is the repeal of the glass-steagall Act repealed in 1999 under Clinton - it permitted issues to come up which are responsible (in part) for the banking issues in 2007/2008, etc. Clinton signed the repeal into law - but Republicans fostered the repeal beginning to end in Congress.

    Blame must be equally spread if we're wanting to avoid problems.

    The same folks who are blaming President Obama, failed to put any blame on President Bush for 8 years. How is this fair and importantly, why doesn't the mainstream media point this out?
    I've actually found that people disapprove of Bush and disapprove of Obama - both being disliked. Not everyone but a lot. That's how I am on it.

    But, again, the President can't write any laws with regards to lobbying reform either. He can only sign a bill that Congress writes. And Congressmen and Senators aren't going to write a bill that limits how much money lobbyists can give them. It's not in their interests to do so.

    This is why we need popular initiatives at the federal level.

    Re: CNN Poll: Was Bush better president than Obama?

    So - the 'blame game' has two faces.

    #1: understanding cause/effect - wanting to find the reason and relation to action to AVOID them in the future.
    #2: just to make your opponent look bad so you look good.

    I prefer us to encourage #1 - and avoid #2.
