    No, I mean Bush-ear policies/tax cuts/spending that Obama and the Democrats tried their best to undo and the GOP insisted stay. Sorry, but you don't get to blame the GOP's continuing mistakes on Obama when he has fought you tooth and toenail - and has recently proposed yet another attempt to change the direction.

    Re: How long will you "blame Bush"?

    I have no problem with folks blaming Clinton for DADT, welfare reform, and other things that took place under his Presidency. Why should others not be able to blame Bush for things that took place during HIS Presidency?

    If Obama is defeated in 2012, will GOPers not blame Obama for things that he caused & initiated?

    That's like having a pitcher give up 10 runs and then complain his backup is worse because the backup gave up two runs and now they're losing by 12-0 when it was only 10-0 before the reliever came in.

    Do you even understand how the graphically demonstrates what I just posted?

    It doesn't rebuke what I said -- it confirms it.

    It is clear that, regardless of the truth, you're only interested in
    1: Blaming the GOP
    2: Absolving the Dems
    3: Protecting The Obama.

    I have no time for partisan bigots; as such, I thank you for making it clear I need not consider anything else you might post.

    I'd really like to see the source you are using which informed you that the debt was 9 trillion when Bush left office. I'd like to see the source you rely on which informed you the debt increased 6.5 trillion in just 2 years.

    But then when you factor in the GDP...and the number of papers sold by the NYT divided by the number of letters in Bush's name and the overall growth of hedge funds and stocks owned by Warren Buffets secretary...you can see it is still all Bush's fault...

    Obama was forced to extend the Bush-era tax-cuts, in order to prevent a government shutdown. Do you really think its honest to now consider these tax-cuts to be "Obama's tax-cuts"?

    Obama did not remove tax-loopholes, because the GOP backed him into a corner and made him choose between standing up for his principles and allowing the country to default on its debt. He chose to defend the economic stability & faith/credit of the United States. Do you think its honest to now consider Obama to be in support of tax-loopholes used by the wealthy and hedge-fund managers?

    You claim better or worse. Only an ideologue would look at ANY of those statistics and claim pride in his retard king. No wonder they have little concern about the upcoming reelection. The president isnt elected so they can take a bad situation and make it worse or maintain it. You crow with pride that your selected retard King has managed to maintain throughout the course of his presidency an unemployment rate ranging from 16 to 18 percent. Good lord, Pete...seriously. It's time to lay off the kool aid.

    Please put me on ignore. I'm putting you there for exactly what you say - blaming the Dems, absolving the GOP of any wrongdoing and blaming everything on Obama.
