Obama's approval rating less than Bush's at same point.

Quote from WSJ Rasmussen/Gallup Poll article from link above

"Polling data show that Mr. Obama's approval rating is dropping and is below where George W. Bush was in an analogous period in 2001"

Congress' approval at 18%, still lower than all of Bush's approval ratings, even at his lowest.

Congress AND White House now run by Democrats.

Yet, most people still blame Republicans for the economic meltdown.

Frankly, I do, too, but not in the active sense. I blame them in the passive, didn't stand up for what was right, sense. Some did, but were boo'd out of Congress and out of the media as "racist" and "anti-poor" rich cats. Nobody else had the wisdom or the spine to stand with them, listen to what they were warning us about,..and here we are.

And, unfortunately, the foxes who cried "racist" are now guarding the henhouse they stole from, and so there is no hope we will recover soon.

Let's hope the American people figure this out soon, and throw them out before they destroy our kids' future even more.

China is worried about U.S. deficit. Web Link

I think China may start demanding higher interest payments on all those bailout funds Obama keeps signing. By the end of the Depression, it won't be all the Republicans fault. Obama bears the brunt of bailing out GM, giving more money to AIG, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This rests squarely on the Democrat's shoulders.

Refresh my memory-- What did George Bush do in his first 2 months in office? What crises did he have to deal with? What major initiatives did he propose?

"What did George Bush do in his first 2 months in office? "

He was learning how to read that book he presented to the elementary school kids as 9/11 blew up in his face. Worst President in American history, by a mile!
