A) The magnitude of Bush's screw ups are overwhelming. We would be hard pressed to give him his full due of criticism.

B) What did you expect from a Fox News poll? Are you putting them forth as a bastion of objectivity?


Now, watch as I get attacked as being a "liberal," not because the OP has any clue about the details of my views, but because I have the GALL to dispute the Neo-con / Fox News version of reality.

Why would I attack you .........you did just fine on your own. You don't think I knew the first post would be slamming fox news instead of actually speaking intelligently on the issue? Thats what you do....you cant help it.....................Hot Air » Rasmussen: Days of blaming Bush are over I am always happy to give some one the opportunity to rant about fox news just as I am glad to see them still blaming Bush.

Can you attach a "conservative" tag to Opinion Dynamics, Inc., the actual pollster? I don't know much about the company, but i'm not seeing claims of conservative bias anywhere in a quick Google search.

Maybe you can qualify your statement for us?

It's not just Bush, it was Bush, CLinton and Reagan. Problem is, Obama is doing the same things they did. People who think that Obama has ruined the country in 2 years have no understanding of history and should be avoided at all costs.

Cool Blaming Bush - the brutal truth

'Til the end of time, Bush will be responsible for all the things he fouled up.

Obama is now responsible for cleaning up the mess Bush left behind. Conservos love to pretend it's all the fault of the clean-up crew.

It's a big, dirty job

I believe Fox News to be incapable of objective reporting.

I mean look at the question,

"Is it time for Obama to take responsibility for the condition of the economy?"

It is a vague question. How does a head of state "Take responsibility for the condition of the economy?" What the hell does that even mean?

Is it attempting to assign blame for the current situation? Is it asking whether or not Obama has taken steps that he think will improve the economy? Is it asking whether or not Obama has taken steps that've actually helped the economy?

Yep, if you're far enough to the right, Bush didn't make any mistakes. And he wasn't a screw-up. And he won two wars. And Cheney is an all-American hero.

And Obama is losing two wars. And he wrecked the world economy. And he turned America into a socialist state.
