^^ Now you're on the trolley! Obama is to blame for everything bad that has ever happened!

Let's not blame the guy who made the mess, just the one who's trying to clean it up!

I didn't realize that either Bush OR Obama ran the state governments in these states. Man, the president is even powerfuller than I thought.

Well, as long as we keep trying to simplistically blame a single person for government spending more money than it has, we will deserve the results we get.

You deserve many rep points for this. I hate the fact that this is really about how 40% of the US population thinks!!!

Yes, the liberals are much more reasonable blaming Bush for Hurricane Katrina and the failed New Orleans levees (and lack of evacuation even though it was the city and state's responsibility to start the evacuation), global warming, 9/11, etc. That's MUCH more reasonable than those kooky conservatives. (dripping with sarcasm)

Either your putting words in people's mouths or the liberals you know are nutjobs that think Bush is some deity who can control Mother Nature and people's minds.

Not sure about AZ but most of the others are not right to work states. Also, most of them are very heavy in terms of business regs.
