You know how President Obama is constantly placing fault for the economy on George W. Bush? Ridiculous at this point, right? Well, not so fast. Apparently those White House operatives know what they’re doing.
Fully 69 percent assign a moderate or great deal of blame to Bush for the state of the economy, compared to 53 percent who blame Obama, according to a poll last month by Gallup. And the numbers basically haven’t changed for three years!
Respondents, as you can see, were given an option to assign blame to both.
Either Obama has succeeded in warping perceptions by constantly blaming his predecessor, or people just grew so angry at Bush that they can’t change their view.
But Bush didn’t even cause the financial meltdown. That was courtesy of liberal housing policies pushed mainly by Democrats that placed people in homes they couldn’t afford – and that they eventually stopped paying the mortgage on.
No wonder Bush went in for a stent today!
