    I will blame bush Obama the media and all of our lawmakers. Most Imporantly I will blame all of us.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

It's just not accomplished yet, and thus not an 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
    was it 50% Clinton's fault when we went into the recession of 2008?

    The Crash isn't entirely (can't believe i'm about to say this) Governments' fault - the rating agencies, the banks, the investors, the home-buyers, the flippers, everyone who bought into the belief of something-for-nothing-housing-prices-will-always-go-up share responsibility. what is Government's responsibility is how they reacted to that recession - and that is what will set the conditions of 2012.

    Who am I going to blame in 2012?

    Well, I am going to wait till 2012, see what happens until then, and then figure that out who I will blame for whatever the main issue is at the time...

    I'm not going to blame anyone at all...I'm going to vote for the guy that is willing to make reasonable tax increases while eliminating a LOT of spending.

    Re: Who will you blame in 2012?

    A good chunk of the Republican party and free market conservatives get the blame from me, but it takes two to tango. It's not like the Democrats are free of corporate sponsorship themselves. Many are actually fairly pro-wealthy themselves. Hell, pretty much all our congress and elected officials at the national level are of the rich elite and are going to look out for their own kind first.

    The free market did not cause the financial crisis, your current system we have is corporatism. We havent had a true free market in years.
