    “Blame Bush: Obama successfully diffused the economic issue. In every one of the 16 states where the question was asked, which included battleground states Ohio, Virginia, and Florida, people blamed George Bush, not Obama, for the current economic problems. It wasn’t close anywhere”

  2. Care to share what states had straw polls?

  3. This article provides really interesting pieces of information. I´m not surprised (of course) by what they indicate. It is as unsurprising as the U.S. immigration to Canada. We are watching an extremely divided public opinion where it should be united. Do we need immigrant? Of course. Do we need social programs for the poor? Of course. Do we need to do something with our health care? Of course. But it seems that the consensus is never made about anything. And I want to add that I agree with Max Planck on the fact that the major guilt is still put on G.W.Bush. We all know that he was just lucky during his mandate.

      “And I want to add that I agree with Max Planck on the fact that the major guilt is still put on G.W.Bush. We all know that he was just lucky during his mandate.”

      if two failed wars, a terrorist attack, hyper leverage, a fantastic erasure of the nation’s wealth, blowing out a surplus and replacing it with a $10 trillion deficit is your idea of a “lucky mandate” I shudder to think what bad luck must amount to.

      1. Yeah maybe I was not accurate with calling it lucky. But we both know that president who confuse d Austria with Australia had to have some luck during his 8 year administration :)

    I don’t remember any Austria/ Australia confusion but I do know B. O. claimed they speak Austrian in Austria. I’m not going to say why that’s a dumb statement because if you don’t know, there’s a good change you’re a member of the Obama Clown Posse. Just one of many ignorant things he said the media propaganda complex didn’t think was important. No, no. He’s really smart isn’t he?
