Bad News: This Whole Blame Bush Thing is Actually Working

If you've been paying any attention at all throughout the past three years, you've noticed President Obama blaming President George W. Bush for just about everything while dodging any responsibility for his own failed economic policies. According to a new Gallup Poll, many Americans actually believe the bad economy is Bush's fault.

Americans continue to place more blame for the nation's economic problems on George W. Bush than on Barack Obama, even though Bush left office more than three years ago. The relative economic blame given to Bush versus Obama today is virtually the same as it was last September.

And Republicans are also jumping on the blame Bush bandwagon:

Republicans and Democrats distribute economic blame in different ways, as was the case last September. Democrats follow what might be described as a fairly traditional pattern: 90% blame Bush, in contrast to 19% who blame Obama.

Republicans, however, are more ecumenical in their blame, with 83% blaming Obama a great deal or moderate amount and 49% ascribing the same level of blame to Bush. Republicans, in short, are significantly more willing to blame their most recent Republican president than are Democrats willing to blame Obama.
