I don't know how we could forget, Obama keeps reminding us. Frankly, his constant references to the previous administration makes him look weak.

When he's not re-elected in 2012 he will blame that on Bush too!

Fred Thompson said " I cant wait to watch the State of the union address to see what Bush has done now" BTW Bush left a 423 Billion Dollar Deficit due to a Democrat Senate and Congress after 8 years, Obama turned it into a 1.3 Trillion Dollar Deficit in 1 year. I suppose that was Bush's fault too....

This is the first administration I have been with out a job. That is 26 years worth. So I do remember the past four administrations that I was employed through. This is by far the worst one of the bunch.And they were all bad. The Communists won!

What I think President Obama failed to realize was that being out of a job and unable to provide for ones family was far more important to people than solving the health care problem. Unemployment is immediate; the problems with health care, though important, are down the road. He wasted a year and much political capital trying to do what many thought was jamming something down our throats.
