I for one am fed up with people like Nancy Pelosi and the President constantly whining that they can't be expected to make real changes because of policies they were handed by the Bush administration. Just today Pelosi said when speaking of Obama's Afghanistan policy that he had been "dealt a very bad hand because there was no plan in Afghanistan for years.” At what point will any of the high profile Dems own up to their own inabilities and stop blaming Bush for everything? President Obama is very indecisive when he has to react quickly; only when he has had time to query his "advisors" about what he should say or do is he able to respond. It is government by committee. Cowboy up Obama and quit letting Nancy Pelosi be your mouthpiece.

They will never, cause they need a fall guy for their lame failures... when will a liberal ever stand up to their own mistakes? The same time a republican will... which will be "never"... I am still waiting for apologies from Bush but honestly, I don't think I will hear it from Bush or from liberals (especially those on these forums)...

I would say about 2-3 years into the Obama administration. It is a fact that recessions take some time to get out of. Just look at the recession recovery from the Carter years into the first years of the Reagan presidency. fair is fair.. O has only been in office less than 11 months.

When an issue, like recession, job losses, banking fiascos, wars, etc, aren't relevant to the past.

As long as they can use Bush as a scapegoat for their own failings they will never stop.

Reagan complained about Carter for the first two years of his Presidency. In 1983, when the economy began to improve, it was suddenly "morning in America", and the whining about Carter decreased significantly.

I'd say that Obama and Democrats will stop blaming Bush when the economy shows clear signs of improvement, and the 2012 campaign is in full swing.

When are the Dems going to quit whining about everything being the fault of the Bush administration?
I don't know. When are the Republicans going to quite whining about Clinton and Carter?

Agreed in fact it wasn't until Reagan's 3rd year in office until we saw job growth unemployment during Reagan's tenure hit its peak (10.8) during his 22nd and 23rd month in office.
