How can anybody blame Obama for the current economy?
Our current recession has been in the works for many years with the real pain hitting while W was at the helm. It takes time to move an economy this big in any direction. Keep in mind that the 2006 elected congress had no effect untill after Oct. of 2007. We were well on our way to recession by then.

For the billionth time I had nothing to do with it. just because the people are retarded when taking out loans and paying them back doesn't make it my fault. FYI, it started in 2008. That's when the senate became Democrat controlled. And interesting how the economy was fine up until then? Fun stuff

My party likes to blame liberals for everything, even if it is not their fault. It is payback for when the whole country blamed the GOP for everything, when it was their fault.
