Exit Polls: It's Still Bush's Fault

Let's look at the facts: by the time the economy blew up, Bush had been in power for almost 8 full years with working Republican majorities in both houses for all of that time. Clinton left the Repubs with budget surpluses. The Republicans squandered the surpluses on pointless tax cuts and even more pointless wars and blew up the economy in an orgy of deregulation. What's miraculous is that there are still half of the voters who DON'T blame Bush. We call those people "morons."

Sorry, but blaming your predecessor for your own failure is not presidential. And anyone who buys that garbage is the true moron.

The clinton surplus is a myth, and he economy was already in free fall in Nov 2000.

Of course. All facts are myths in the Republican bubble. My bad.

Four years after President Obama first took office and half of voters are still blaming the poor economy on President Bush according to POLITICO:

Early exit polls released on Tuesday evening show that about half of voters still blame President George W. Bush more than President Barack Obama for the country’s economic problems and most cite the economy as their top issue in the election.

The exit poll results released by The Associated Press fit with the argument Obama’s team has been making in the lead-up to the election.

Apparently Obama...
