less you forget, he's saved American from the mess Bush created, and that was no small accomplishment, so when the story is told, that part will be there. I doubt your opinion will be considered, . Perhaps, the story will be told to include a collection of racist wingnuts who wished for disaster, to prove a moot point; the worse white person is better than a bright intelligent African American.

you miss four "gigantic things: Clinton, the Democrats, Dodd and Frank...how selective ! Historians won't however. Bush didn't create the mess, he fought it ! And if this is clearing up the "mess" we are in deep...real deep !

Apparently you weren't around in 1980 when unemployment was over 10% inflation was over 13% and a home mortgage was OVER 20%. In 2007 the deficit was 160 Billion while Obama's deficits are 1200 Billion + _every year_. Obama took a bad situation and made it worse. He WANTS the economy to tank as part of the 'transformation'.

What do you mean he saved us from the mess Bush created, in case you haven't noticed we are still in the same mess only worse, less money, less jobs, everything is getting more expensive. Plus we are 16 plus trillion in debt, yea good job big O. And why is it you people on the left are always the ones bringing up race if we are the racist. Put some pants on I think I hear your mommy calling you to dinner.

Please learn to write and spell before posting (this is really embarrassing)...about what we might expect from a defender of the feckless, dissembling socialist the ObaMessiah

As for saving America from the mess allegedly created by Bush, it was the LEFT which had caused the housing crisis (with demands for sub-prime mortgage loans), which in turn caused the banking crisis. Dubya tried on several occasions to rein in foolish lending policy practices, but was rebuffed by Chris Dodd and Barney Fwank, et al.

How is taking a slight smear and making it into a seriously worse mess 'saving' it?

Barack Obama is said to believe that he can win the political fight over the sequester. That's certainly the conventional wisdom.

And there is some evidence to support it. When you ask voters who will be to blame if the sequester occurs, Obama or "congressional Republicans," they're much more likely to say they'll blame the latter.

Obama also comes out on top when you ask whether they will blame "Obama and congressional Democrats" or "congressional Republicans."

There's reason to wonder, however, whether reaction after something happens will be the same as what people predict before it does.

Voters are not always...
