The lie has been toold for the entire first term. The Bush policies that "got us into this mess" were - cheap money, bailouts, stimulus, more entitlements, profligate spending, more regulations and abandoning capitalism in order to "save" it. These have been Obama's policies - except on steroids. Instead, blithering idiots believe the absurdity that the problem was caused by "deregulation" without ever questioning why REGULATORS actually responsible for the problems might possibly LIE about that. No wonder high school dropouts voted overwhelmingly for Obama.
