    You mean Bush handled his crisis better than Obama is doing

    Then you weren't paying attention. One of the largest criticism with Bush was that he rarely if ever took responsibility. Eight years after he was first elected, it was all still Clinton's fault. Obama has a while to catch up with that.

    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.

    from personal political views I would say no

    But this isn't a fair comparison of 2 years in office to 8

    Really. What quotes do you have to back that up?

    No, I don't buy that. Faulty memories make Bush look better.

    I don't think anybody is trying to claim otherwise. It's an assessment of Obama up until this point. Obviously things can get better or worse, but that doesn't mean a comparison thus far is "unfair."

    You can, but it would not be very academically honest. If I tried to change my senior thesis topic to this I would have the entire PO department on my ass for doing something like this. I can pretty much hear my advisor saying now, "You never know if something like 9/11 will happen to President Obama which can shift the way the entire country feels about him."

    Show proof he blamed Clinton as often as Obama blames Bush

    Wrong the blaming of Bush by Obama will not let that happen

    Well even that would be hard to do because they are two different crises. If you wanted to compare the two Presidents on something you could do it on handling the Afghanistan War. But like I said earlier to be honest about it you would first have to let President Obama leave office.
