Criticism of President Obama’s efforts to overhaul the nation’s health care system may be growing, but a new Rasmussen poll indicates that most Americans still blame his predecessor, George W. Bush, for the nation’s economic woes.

The national telephone survey of 1,000 likely voters found that 55 percent still believe the policies of the Bush administration brought on the recession, while 39 percent blamed Obama’s policies for the bad economy.

Dah, most people are uneducated about things like economic cycles and how the housing bubble burst in Switzerland first, then expanded to america.

When your uneducated, you blame the wrong individuals...

Anyone who blames Bush, or Obama needs to read my 2nd paragraph above..

The boom for this one started in the 80's, many people so vocal about it weren't even born yet.

Top down as we say in the Military. He was in charge when the bubble burst. He could have done more to prevent it. He should have done more.
So should have our elected reps who reasons unknown chose not to.
