Pubs don't want to admit or acknowledge that the effects of 8 horrific years of Bush didn't simply end when he waved goodbye with his lovely wife Laura. The disastrous effects rage on.

Blame Obama for not solving every problem in a couple years as a way to divert attention away from you own severe flaws, Pubs, but you can't run away from the facts. Bush's presidency was a collosal failure and we continue to pay for it.

I'll agree with your statement.
Wars are expensive; the TSA is expensive and tax cuts to the rich had a devastating effect on the economy.
Economic policy of the George W. Bush administration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Includes a nice chart about 25% down the page.

Total income was $2.74 trillion less during the eight Bush years than if incomes had stayed at 2000 levels.
<snip>
Even if we limit the analysis by starting in 2003, when the dividend and capital gains tax cuts began, through the peak year of 2007, the result is still less income than at the 2000 level. Total income was down $951 billion during those four years.

The "Blame Bush" statute of limitations has expired.

But whatever you think will bring back disenchanted moderates and anti-war folks back on Obama's side. What's Obama's re-election slogan gonna be in 2012? "I suck, but I suck less than the other guy", coupled with a splash of "Remember 2000? Don't waste your vote on a third party"

The "Blame Bush" crowd and the Birthers should hold a convention. I do wonder how long we will be feeling the Obama administration and its lack of ability to do much of anything. Just keep your heads in the sand and keep on supporting him and his phoney economic data.

Maybe if the "It's all Obama's fault" troops would look at what their beloved Bush did to get us into this situation, the lies would stop.
The economy didn't go into the toilet on 15 Jan 2009.

Maybe if the "It's all Bush's fault" troops would look at what their beloved Obama did to continue us on this situation, the lies would stop. The economy isn't going to recover anytime soon under these failed policies.

Too many people living along "Da Nile".
The US was headed downward way before Bush took office.
Some people think Obama is their savior and Utopia is right around the corner..right after Obama cleans up "Bush's mess".

Sooner than later though reality will hit like a ton of bricks. And it won't be pretty.

"Blame Bush" follows an exponential decay.

x represents time since Jan 20 2009 (x = 0)
y represents percentage of population who buys this excuse





There's also a law of diminishing returns. The more it's claimed that Bush is to blame, the steeper the slope (people start thinking Obamabots are desperate).

I just wish I knew how large lambda was

You can't blame Bush for our problems, he's left office. Oh, well, I guess Bush is still in, he just uses the name Obama now. Same policies, same intellect, same agenda, same empty suit.
