    Of course it's President Bush's fault, everything's President Bush's fault. President Obama has BPBS (Blame President Bush Syndrome.)

    Oh how silly of me. You're right. His approval rating is in the 90 percentile range. I guess I just imagined he sucked. I guess I just imagined that unemployment is remaining above 9% because companies are unsure of their economic future. You are so smart. Obama's performance rocks!

    According to the Chosen One, we would all be drinking Bubble-up and eating rainbow stew if only Bush hadn't of dealt him such a raw deal.

    What poor performance? First point is the president signs bills, congress holds the purse string and passes the laws regulating. The president has only veto power. The economy is better than when he assumed office, the war on terror better too.

    Stimulus, saving GM, stopped the bleeding. Minus 9% GDP 4th qtr of 08 moved up 12 points by the 4th qtr of 09. Dow doubled in 19 months from 6000 to 12,000 with 2 US record qtrs of profit. Banks paid back most of TARP loans with interest. Since the stimulus money hit the economy strongly in the 4th qtr of 09, 2 1/2 million private sector jobs were created, but far short of the 7 million lost the year before. 550,000 state jobs have been cut, 250,000 when stimulus aid ended last summer and 330,000 by GOP governors since the shellacking. GDP the first qtr of 2011 showed a drop without the demand. The GOP says business uncertainty under Obama, then keeps 100 federal judges from confirmation backlogging the courts creating business uncertainty without court rulings. House GOP job programs none. Replace for the repeal of the affordable care act not done. Social bills that have nothing to do with the economy have been their focus to get base support.

    I look at the ignorance coming from the GOP on the Iraq withdrawal and see clueless political attacks. Maliki has to have the Sadr faction in order to have a coalition government. We may not like Iran having such a strong voice with the Sadr faction, reality is Sadr people have made 20 attacks on us this summer, but our presence would dissolve the Maliki government. I see weak on terror, appeaser, attacks when Al Qaeda has been decimated, 30,000 troops in Afghanistan surged, drone attacks increased 20 fold. You mess with the US, be you OBL, Al-Awlaki, Gadhafi, Somalian pirate, you wind up dead.

    Not just NO, but HELL NO! Oblamer wags his finger at the Gulf Oil spill, the Japanese tsunami, Wall Street, George Bush, global warming, and "workplace violence" @ Ft. Hood as the causes for his low ratings! Pretty juvenile, I'd say. Accepts no accountability for his nor his administration's inability to govern. He's in waaay over his head.

    Fault... that is a long chain, but all that Obumba has really accomplished since taking office has been to tripple down on drunken wild spending corporatist rethug stupidity and call it hope and change.
