Most Voters Blame Bush for Recession

As dismal as Obama’s poll ratings are, a large majority still blames Dumbya for the shitty economy. Damn, the rightwing echo chamber has shat out billions of dollars worth of propaganda, and this is all they have to show for it?

According to a Quinnipiac poll, 54% of the respondents say Bush is responsible for the “current condition” of the economy. 27% blame Obama. Among independent voters, 49% blame Bush and 24% blame Obama.

And, 67% of the public wants any deal on the debt ceiling to include higher taxes for corporations and wealthy individuals, as well as reduced spending.

Aside from blaming either Bush or Obama, some Republicans have a different theory on who’s to blame. Congressman Spencer Bachus (R—Duuuhhh) says our current recession is the fault of presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson.

And Rep. Patrick McHenry (R—Wall Street Hooker) says it’s all Elizabeth Warren’s fault. After all, she created that Nazi/Communist Jackbooted Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, whose sole purpose is to bully and terrify banking executives. Those poor Wall Street shrinking violets are scared shitless to lend any money or do ANYTHING because that big mean Elizabeth Warren is glaring at them and threatening to steal their lunch money.

And since banks are afraid to lend money (because of Elizabeth Warren), businesses can’t hire any new employees and the economy will continue on its downward spiral forever.

Damn You Elizabeth Warren!

Poll or no poll, Democrats would do well to keep reminding people. I never cease to be amazed at my fellow Americans' capacity to be distracted, scared into screwing up or otherwise propagandized.

Now, at the risk of being unpopular, this reporter places the blame for all of this squarely on you, the viewers.

If you blame FDR and LBJ then you have to blame Reagan because he supposedly did away with all of their initiatives

Jerry: You're right; Democrats are the janitor who has to keep cleaning up the mess made by Republicans.

Anonymous: That's all he knows how to do.

SW: I'm really pleasantly surprised so many people are actually blaming Bush. It shows the GOP propaganda machine isn't as effective as I feared. But it's definitely not time to let our guard down.

Randal: And this reporter is doing the same thing.

Erik: But you're using logic, which that Republican congressman isn't capable of using.
