Default LOL "Obama's fault!" : More Americans blame Obama for bad economy

I can't LOL at this point. Monetary policy reached its limits more than a year ago and Bernanke is out of good tools, and Obama is a total tool when it comes to fiscal and economic policy.

The Simpson Bowles Commission and the Domenici/Rivlin Commission and the Gang of Six and every other sane group that has looked at how to solve our problems have all come up with essentially the same plan. Obama is running away from their proposals, now campaigning as Nancy Pelosi in drag.

Today with the Dow down about 500 points, in the depths of the unemployment crisis, Obama "clings" to his counterproductive notions of how the world should be made to work. The regulatory job destruction has crippled the banking system, manufacturers, and the energy industry. His tax proposals are exactly opposite what his own bipartisan commission came up with. The crony capitalism thing is blowing up big-time. He favors unions over jobs.

When will he grasp the connection between "employers" and "employment?" You cannot continually beat the heck out of the first one without doing serious damage to the second one. I had faith that we could outlast this guy, but the damage is getting severe.

"According to Gallup, 53 percent of those surveyed say Obama bears some of the blame for the struggling economy"

"Yet more Americans still put most of the responsibility on former President George W. Bush for the nation's current economic predicament. According to Gallup, 69 percent of those polled say Bush bears the blame."

Apparently some people don't read their own links

I'm thinking Summers was hoping nobody else would either!

If Obama was running against Bush in 2012, maybe that would matter...but if 53% say he has some blame, then thats 53% that will have at least some reservation when it comes to signing up for 4 more years of teleprompters, and horrid decisions that lead to additional financial decline.

Surely, you didn't mean "tool".

Obama will be running against Bush's party. That's close enough for those of us without amnesia or dementia

Reading further:

"Heading into 2012, Obama has repeatedly argued that he inherited the struggling economy, pointing the finger back at Bush's policies. But the Gallup poll finds Americans less and less willing to get him the benefit of the doubt--doubtless a worrying sign for the strategists spearheading the president's re-election efforts."

I think they both share the blame.
