Jobs: The president has presided over the loss of 2.2 million jobs.
• Debt: Obama has increased taxpayer debt by $4.2 trillion. Every day, the nation runs a deficit of $4.2 billion.
• Foreclosure and Bankruptcy: 2.4 million homes have been foreclosed on. Homeowners and businesses have declared 4 million bankruptcies.
• The Stimulus: Obama promised that his $787 billion stimulus would save or create 3.5 million jobs by the end of 2010. He came up 7.3 million jobs short of his goal, according to the Heritage Foundation.
• Healthcare: Obamacare did not reduce healthcare costs as promised and is in fact responsible for increasing costs in 2011. Health insurance premiums are up 13 percent.
• Poverty: Nearly 3 million more Americans live in poverty than did before Obama took office.
I guess this is Bush's fault.

Well, it could not possibly be 0-bamas' fault! He knows what is best for everyone and is always right about everything! Just ask his supporters.

Why do Dems only blame Bush for the economy and Repubs, even worse, only blame Obama, instead of pointing the finger at the real culprit...Alan Greenspan?

hah. Obama took the pilot's seat immediately after the plane's engines burst on fire, and you're blaming him for the loss in altitude.

Its a game to them. If the can get the audience to believe them they will win. Blaming your opponent for bad policies will guarantee your victory instead of placing the real blame on a party that does not need to be voted in such was the case with Alan Greenspan.

Nope. People are blaming him for opting to drive the plane nose first into the ground instead of trying to stabilize and land the damn thing.

Well I can see where this is going. Apparently, Everything was on the upswing the day before Obama to office. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. You guys keep ignoring that fact that the current clusterf*ck has been building up for the past almost 40 years. But I guess it doesn't matter if "your" elected President is at the head of the Titanic. "At least we can go down with dignity." Oy.

I'm blaming both the D's and R's in Congress for not being able to work together to sort this out. I'm tired of the games--do what's right for the country for once vs. what's right for your own party. I'm not alone--have you looked at Congressional approval ratings lately? 13%
