President Obama Succeeded In
Blaming Bush For Economy

Investor's Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:HollowLeg, 11/7/2012 10:26:28 PM

Economy: Having successfully blamed his predecessor for four years, the president celebrates at the edge of a fiscal cliff, with Taxma-geddon, ObamaCare and sequestration looming as war clouds gather in the Middle East. Exit polls released Tuesday showed about half of voters still blame President George W. Bush more than President Barack Obama for the country's economic problems, as most cited the economy as their top issue in the election. They believed the Big Lie that the mess we are in was inherited and that Obama at least kept

Now he's inherited a mess HE created.

Because Republicans are afraid to fight and stand by their convictions.

The problem is the mess he leaves will not be solvable by the person who replaces him

It is just that simple

Thank you Ohio!

When your factories close and you mines shut down don't come bothering me for charity.

You can all starve this winter and end up having to eat your children when you factories and mines shut down for all I care

Ask your liberal friends for aide - just make sure they don't give you Aides

You wanted a liberal government to take care of you? You've got it.

Now die with it

Don't any charity anywhere ask ME for $$$. Ask your Big Daddy Obama. Not one more dime will I donate to any charity while your president(he is not MY president) takes tax dollars out of my pocket to pay for your groceries, the roof over your heads,your EBT cards,your medical care (as if I were not already doing so), or your Obamaphone. Not One Dime more from me.

And you folks in NY/NJ, you can have both Obama AND Christie. See how much "help" you'll get from them now that the election is over. A pox on all their houses.

I am trying to balance being extremely angry and frightened with also trying to remain a Christian.
I can't believe all the welfare that folks already get (free heating, free phones, free food, free housing, free medical care, free schooling etc).
And with all that they have expensive sneakers that I won't let my kids have, fancy phones that are more than I have, and yet they don't work and just want want want.
I am finding it difficult to feel any pity for them or any desire to help them.
I want to retreat and take care of my family, friends and church and let them fend for themselves.
But I also don't want to go to hell.
Ugh.
I wish this election had been different.

#4 Read the New Testament and stop letting liberal theologians tell you what being a Christian is!

The Apostle Paul said "Those that do not work do not eat" to members of the church in Corinth that were waiting for Jesus to return and and living off others.

It is the same in secular society. They refuse to work - in many cases. They want the government to take care of them while they idle their life away on welfare. Well, give them no aid until they repent and so effort at reform their debauched lifestyle.

If they do not work let them starve.

Do not cast your pearls before swine give your charitable dollars to organizations that will help those who are grateful and truly in need.

Amen #5... too many Christian people have bought into the idea that we as Christians must go out of our way to care for the able bodied who won't, who actively refuse to care for themselves, much less the millions of children they bring into this world. I see no such mandate in my Bible. If a man or woman actively refuses to take care of themselves and proceeds to bring children into this world and deprive those children of all the necessities of life relying completely on others to provide for that child, why should we as Christians promote that sinful lifestyle by financially supporting it? THAT in and of itself is sinful!! It is a national corporate sin that our tax dollars are used to support such sloth and avarice and we are paying for that national sin now among many others.

There are consequences to being irresponsible and sinful. We as a nation have willingly sheltered huge groups of these people from reality for far far too long. For many throughout history, hunger and want has been a great motivator to self improvement.

Obama is now under no pressure to pretend about his intentions for the US economy. "Hope" will quickly recede, and Revenge will move to center stage now.

And I wonder: Democrats have been aching for something for a very long time - aching to come out of the closet and openly declare their love and devotion to Socialism (as if it were any surprise..). Will they take the plunge and do it now, now that they've got the next 4 years, and their Marxist Messiah is safely installed again? Here's hoping.

Amen 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 - Amen to all of you. And yes 1, this blame falls on a weak campaign to inform people that it was liberalism, not BUSH, that screwed things up in the first place.

But Rove and Bush get blame, because they sat around for 8 years and never fought the informational battle - and drip drip drip for 8 years our electorate got more and more ignorant because conservatism was never articulated nor defended from a man we elected to do so. Bush still has the blame for the economy, and Mitt got the blame for Sandy because he is from the party that got the blame for Katrina and that still hangs over us.

Again, because Bush and Rove allowed that blame.

The Democrats are better politicians. They lied their butts off and the sheeple believed them. We need to be very worried about what the future holds from these Democrats. Any group of politicians that will be that devious and lying to win an election is on an evil train that may stop in future stops like Auschwitz and Treblinka and the killing fields of Cambodia. Get ready for the coming civil war between the makers and the takers. Perhaps this will lead to a separation legally that already exists socially and economically.

Drudge has a story up where it is reported that turnout, this election was lower than in 2008. Can someone fact check this? Come on, people!! You saw the lines - how long people waited vote!! I've NEVER seen lines like that in any election I've been in.

If the total numbers are off, than ite's because votes are missing in action.

Obama stole this election. Are we going to let them get away with it?

#5. Liberal Christians don't support that scripture. Many believe it to be Old Testament (I know it's not!) and after you show it isn't, the poo-poo it as the ramblings of a wild man. Lib Christians think the only thing Jesus ever said or did we're in the Beatitudes.

I've heard two plans: Give Obama what he wants without any resistance and he will be blamed for the results; the other plan is to resist every bad policy.

The proponents of the first realize that conservatives will be continually blamed if they resist. They are correct. What they don't realize is that conservatives will be blamed *no matter what*!!

As things get worse, conspiracy theories (even more than now) will claim that rich people (especially "the Jews") are plotting and working secretly to drive our Messiah out of power, even if it means giving up a lot of sales and economic growth for decades!!

The worse Obama-nation becomes, the more hateful the rhetoric and scape-goating will become. The masses *will* believe it!!

From the very beginning, when Obama started to blame Bush it should have been pushed back. But it wasn't. It was left just to lay there. I used to say, but he said he did know how bad it was and he did have the answers to fix it. Man, he always got and gets a free pass. And not just from the msm but from the republicans too. No guts, no glory, NO votes!!!

It would have been rewarding if the gop picked a conservative who stated, unequivocally, that if the policies of Pres. Bush (on which many dems voted aye)which the left perceived to be the reason for the financial difficulties, had not been reversed but actually accelerated, it was evident that obama was not the person needed in this situation.

As more data comes out we are seeing that the tag team of Obama/MSM was successful in bending the attitudes of the uninformed and gullible. I fear we underestimate the power that still resides with the MSM. They are a propaganda arm of the Democrats that could represent as much as 10% of the vote. Add to that the impact of entertainment and the decades of liberal brainwashing churned out from academia and one can see that the future is bleak.

Liberalism only moves downhill and will require a crash landing before it can be reset back to reasonable values. We must wait for the chaos that will result. And unfortunately we will all have to endure it.

In their hearts everyone knew that the meme that this Bush's fault is a foul lie. It was simply a convenient excuse. No further proof is necessary than the fact that Bill Clinton loudly espoused it. Next four years when this excuse becomes unsupportable they will come up with something else that the 47% need to get their 'fair share'. The question is that will the five million who voted for McCain but failed to turn up for Romney feel the heat enough to show up in '14?

I'm so sick of this blame game. The economy under Bush was FAR better than it is today. At one point the DJIA was 14,000, which it has never gotten close to under Obumbler. Bush got nailed with the Freddie/Fannie mess, which Republicans, like him, had warned was coming, but the Dems, like Barney Fwank, squealed to leave it alone. When that Dem scam got busted, Bush was left holding the bag, but it was NOT his fault! Even that storm would have been weathered and we would be in a much better economy today with much less debt had the Feds kept their stinking fat noses out of it and let the market deal with it.

I'm sorry, but it's over. We lost.

And I don't mean the election. I mean this country.

The slaves on the welfare plantation currently make up about 47% of the population of this country. After the next two years of a NØbama administration unfettered by re-election concerns, that plantation will easily grow to 55% - 60% of the population on some form of welfare.

Like the current slaves on the welfare plantation, those extra people will soon come to accept getting free stuff from their government overseers as normal, and will follow blindly to the polls to keep electing new Demon-RATS to keep giving them that free stuff.

The concept of working hard for what you earn, and freedom, will quickly become as foreign a concept to the welfare plantation slaves as telling the truth is to NØbama.

This once-great republic died on November 6, 2012. All we have to look forward to now is how long it takes the corps to rot away to a third-world cesspool...

God, I really wish I was exagerating...

Aren't we all proud of W for "staying on the high road" and not "demeaning the office" by defending himself and his record? Bill Clinton and his HUD's crazy subprime lending programs during the 90s caused the financial meltdown. Bush didn't help but his tax cuts had nothing to do with it.

Bad economies don't mean a thing when your last name is Bush. Or Rove. Or Clinton. Or Gingrich. They matter to us. And now we're toast.

That's not true, #27! They aren't all welfare recipients.

The 47% also includes Vets & Seniors on Disability & SS. Why do you think the Dems always yell, "They're going to take your support away!!" and show a senior in a wheel chair being thrown off a cliff? We should sue them for that ad, btw.

We have to fight back & inform that group of what we WILL be doing in four years, and what we WON'T be doing. Now. And warn them that the Democrat party will make more ads to scare them, but ignore them because they are lying.

Start with a picture of that cliff video & say "Remember THIS??" on the front. Then, they open the mailer to the TRUTH. Do this a year from now when the pol ad exhaustion is healed & so they'll be ready for the next. Outdoor ads (billboards) are the next best thing to targeted mailings. Get serious, GOP, or LOSE ME. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more!

A lecturer at English universities, Lewis became a superstar author by explaining his faith and weaving it creatively into novels.

Energy Revolution: America´s natural gas boom threatens Russia´s economic strategy, an expert says, leaving it with few alternatives to rescue its economy while threatening to shatter its energy stranglehold on Europe. Russia´s abundance of energy resources has long allowed it to use energy both as a foreign policy weapon and as the bedrock of the Russian economy. Whenever energy prices rose, Russia benefited and its neighbors often felt the restraining leash of dependence on Russian energy, particularly natural gas. Government-controlled energy giant Gazprom was in such a strong position it could demand decade-long contracts

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability to focus on patient

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

President Obama said Pope Francis did not raise Obamacare “in detail” when they met on Thursday, but that in a separate meeting with the Vatican’s secretary of state “we discussed briefly the issue of making sure that conscience and religious freedom was observed in the context of applying the law.” At a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama also acknowledged that he differs with the Vatican’s stance on some issues, but added that he “heartily” agrees with most of its positions. During his nearly hour-long papal audience, Obama said Pope Francis “actually did not touch in
