Romney doesn’t say it, but middle class decline began with Bush During his speech at the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney stated “this Obama economy has crushed the middle class. Family income has fallen by $4,000 ... more Americans wake up in poverty than ever before.” Romney’s statements require comment. First, with regard to the middle class, a recent report by Pew Social and Demographic Trends does indeed indicate that median household income for the ...

Don Steiner,
I'm just curious when will it be Obamas fault? I'm so sick of hearing "it was Bushs fault". I never trusted anyone that continues to blame somebody else for "their" poor performance.

Another thing I'm sick and tired of hearing is "the 1%". How about the 47% that pay zero taxes every year? maybe if the rest of the country pulled it's own weight we would not be iin this situation.

People and business are leaving Schenectady and NY state in droves, why? Could it be the extremely high taxes and loss of services? I uses to look up to and respect teachers, not any more, they are the 1% in my book, they make an average of $75,000 a year with free medical and pension while working 9 months a year with every weekend and holiday off. While giving our kids a terible education and a 57% graduation rate.

"Since President Barack Obama’s first year in office, a majority of Americans have said that former President Bush’s policies were more responsible for current economic problems than Obama’s policies were."

A CNN poll last Thursday shows that 57% still hold that opinion.
The only groups in the poll whose majorities didn’t support this view were Republicans and conservatives.

SnowGrinch,
A CNN Poll why not an MSNBC poll or maybe a Obama campaign poll.

wmarincic, You can continue to blame the messenger, but the message is still the same... America Blames Bush!

A recent Gallup poll agrees with the CNN conclusion... America Blames Bush for the Economy.

"Gallup first asked this question in July 2009, six months after Obama was inaugurated. At that time, 80% of Americans gave Bush a great deal or a moderate amount of blame, compared with 32% who gave the same level of blame to Obama. Naturally, over time the percentage blaming Bush dropped to about 70% in August 2010, and about half of Americans have blamed Obama since March 2010, with little change from then until now."

Polls are polls and don't always represent the reality. I guess Obama blaming Bush continuously is working for Obama. Maybe now Romney can straighten out the misconception and lies of the left.

The market is up but jobs are down the fed keeps printing money and the real unemplyment is well over 10% for whites and 20% for blacks, that includes those that just stopped looking for work. The price of gas is over $4 and climbing we are allowing Iran to get nukes, the mideast that Obama supported with his Arab Spring is boiling over, Israel, our greatest ally has no trust in us and Obama say's everything will be alright if we give him four more years. Do you really support that snow? really?

The disease of this generation is the political theory of delusional thought. This is a symptom of people of the left who have to use lies and deceit to cover and hide their short comings intellectually in trying to defend their lame political positions of that so they must involve the art of delusional thought. This is something snowgrinch suffers from doing all that dope in school that has effected his/her ability to reason from killing your brain cells.
