Needless to say, conservatives are bristling with scorn over the president's continued attacks on former President George W. Bush, who has been out of office for over two years.
Insisting that the current recession is Bush's fault, the president and his fellow Democrats blatantly ignore that the Congress, which controls spending and the passage of all economic legislation ,was in the Democratic hands during the final four years of the Bush administration.
Noting that "[w]ith unemployment sky-high and the country sinking deeper into debt every minute, it's clear that the last 19 months of "government-as-community-organizer" hasn't worked," said GOP House minority leader John Boehner.
"You know it. I know it. The American people know it. The only ones who don't seem to get it are the Democrats running the White House and Congress. "
Zeroing in on unemployment, Boehner said, "We've exposed debacles in places like my home state where our Democratic governor sent "stimulus" tax dollars to El Salvador -- yes, El Salvador -- as Americans continue to ask "where are the jobs?"
And the top Democrat is Barack Obama. Is it any wonder he's just about on top of about half of everyone's list of most unpopular politicians?
