    Well look at it this way, before Bush came into office things were pretty great, and now things are ****ty hmm I think that speaks for itself.

    Good point! It is noteworthy however that from 2003 until 2010, we spent more money in Iraq than we did in Afghanistan:

    "WASHINGTON The monthly cost of the war in Afghanistan, driven by troop increases and fighting on difficult terrain, has topped Iraq costs for the first time since 2003 and shows no sign of letting up."

    We're never going to stop blaming Bush for the things that are his fault. Even when the recession is over, it'll still be his fault that it happened.

    I never said that the recession was his fault. Did he let it happen? Well that may be another story.

    GWB was certainly responsible for several items that are going to continue to be problems for years to come - invading Iraq, Gitmo, cutting taxes and relying on borrowing money to spend heavily, driving a lot of medical research out of the US. However, a lot of the blame goes to Congressmen on both sides of the aisle. Lately, the GOP has stopped Obama from changing the disastrous course GWB put us on and I hold them squarely responsible for the deepening recession and the lack deficit reduction.

    Well, that's what I'm saying. You can't assign the entirety of the blame for something like that to any one person, but I'd say he's the majority shareholder.

    Re: How long will you "blame Bush"?

    blaming Bush for what he did or didn't do doesn't bug me at all... deflecting Obama's responsibility to Bush does.

    for the first year Bush was in office, everything was Clinton fault....that is to be expected.

    what shouldn't be expected, and yet happens today, is having a President 3/4th through his first term not be held responsible for much of anything.
    one full term is going to based on nothing more than victimhood.


    sorry Obama, you wanted the job, you took it... now you own it.
    it doesn't matter if you were left a crap economy.... own it or gtfo.

    you would be wrong... deregulation that took place that allowed the Quants to game the system didn't happen under Bush.

    that's the problem with the blame game... too few are interested in truth, too many are interested in partisan politics.
