    i notice you didn't mention Democrats having control of the House and a super Majority in the Senate. Given the degree to which you-know-governing-isn't-my-thing-so-much-as-golf-is Obama farmed out domestic and fiscal policy to them, I would hand over responsibility first to them, and then to the President, and then to Bush, and then to the Republican congresses of the late first decade.

    Well clearly not Obama...because Obama did everything within his power to turn this country around. He led us, schooled us, embraced our concern with open arms not resorting to partisan posturing or class warefare or fear mongering or shady politics to pass bills. No he did not. What he did do was choose to lead us and even though we may not be ready as a nation to accept it due to ignorance and racism, we need to even though we are not worthy of this administration and great visionary. So let's stop the bickering and nitpicking and playing the blame game and look forward to what this great leader can do if only we are brave enough to accept change.

    Re: Who will you blame in 2012?

    To answer the question;

    1. Who supports crushing regulations that hinder business?

    2. Who continues to support the mindless bloodshed that is our foreign policy?

    3. Who refuses to kill entitlement programs?

    4. Who continues to support the government sanctioned murdering at home?

    5. Who continues to uphold the authoritarian laws like the Patriot Act?

    6. Who continues to support the Federal Reserve?

    Answer these questions and you will find your answer.

    Given that the economic policies of Bush and Obama are pretty much the same at this point, it doesn't really make sense to blame one anymore than the other.

    eh. Bush is Hoover to Obama's FDR. We can be angry with both, but the second has done to us on steroids what the first did to us merely out of ignorance.

    That would depend on the specifics of the situation in 2012, wouldn't it?

    Sorry, you'll have to pick someone yourself at that point. We won't be here, nor will we care.

    That changed in 2010. Since the Republicans took control of the House, I haven't seen a major improvement.

    Which means that if things don't improve, I'd blame Republicans and Democrats for playing politics instead of working together for the good of the country. It won't be Bush's fault, but since what I said wasn't an option in the poll...I picked 50/50
