Who is to blame for the current economy slump in which the country finds itself? Well, if you ask an economist, he or she will tell you that there are a lot of factors at work and before we can even approach them, we'll have to look at the problem from a global zzzzzzzz…. Zzzzzzzzzzzz… Zzzzzzzz…
Oh man, how long was I asleep? Nevermind nevermind! Let's just ask the people who will be choosing the next president…
Two-thirds of likely voters say the weak economy is Washington’s fault, and more blame President Obama than anybody else, according to a new poll for The Hill.
It found that 66 percent believe paltry job growth and slow economic recovery is the result of bad policy. Thirty-four percent say Obama is the most to blame, followed by 23 percent who say Congress is the culprit. Twenty percent point the finger at Wall Street, and 18 percent cite former President George W. Bush.
Wow! Thirty-four percent! That's a lot. I wonder if that's the same one-third of the country that are aware that the President isn't a Muslim!
Somehow, I think mostly not.
