More people blame economic conditions on Obama
Yeah, they’re coming around:
Americans anxious about unemployment and the economy increasingly blame President Obama for hard times, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, amid signs of turbulence in November’s midterm elections.
Last week’s jubilant signing of the health care overhaul, Obama’s signature domestic initiative, seems to have given the president little boost. Instead, his standing on four personal qualities has sagged, and 50% of those surveyed say he doesn’t deserve re-election.
Despite all the talk of hope and change, despite the majorities in Congress and a media complicit in pushing their narrative, the bottom line is, Democrats still suck at managing the economy. Blaming Bush for economic problems gets old and tired almost two years after the election, and the people obviously notice.
Clearly what this economy needs is a new, onerous healthcare bureaucracy and the passage of cap-and-trade legislation.
