TPJ: And while the number of people who blame Obama for the bad economy is increasing it is still blatantly evident who set off this time bomb in our economy--Bush. In my view, the major reason people are starting to blame Obama is that they don't realize the economy is like a giant ship, which once going in the wrong direction, (thanks Bush) takes some time to correct course. We Americans are impatient by nature but just because the lagging indicator of unemployment hasn't decreased much at least it isn't increasing.
I think by this time in 2012, we'll be doing much better economically. I have hope in that and know we can do it. Obama is pushing forward in a positive way where all the right seems to have to offer is criticism and half-baked ideas like abolishing the federal income tax and demanding to see Obama's birth certificate!!
