I like the way this is going. About damn time, too:
Poll: Voters blame Obama for the economy

Voters by and large believe that President Obama’s economic policies have contributed to the persistent malaise in the economy, according to a new poll.
The CBS/New York Times survey finds that 64 percent of voters believe that Obama’s policies have contributed significantly or somewhat to the persistent weakness in the economy. Still, 81 percent of voters believe the same about the policies of former President George W. Bush.
Obama leads Mitt Romney in measures of middle class security — with 52 percent of respondents saying that Obama will do more to help the middle class. The survey also finds that 52 percent of voters believe that Romney’s policies favor the rich.
Obama’s relentless assault on Mitt Romney’s business record are also showing no real signs of significantly shaping the race. Sixty percent of voters say that Bain makes no difference, while 23 percent say it makes them less likely to vote for him. Seventy-three percent of voters say that Romney’s wealth makes no difference.
Romney gets better marks on handling the economy, with 49 percent of voters saying he would do a better job than Obama. Romney also has an advantage among voters on the budget deficit, taxes, and illegal immigration. Voters trust Obama more on foreign policy and social issues. Obama has only a one point advantage over Romney on handling of terrorism issues, 44 to 43 percent.
Overall, Romney and Obama are essentially tied — with Romney edging Obama 47 to 46 nationally. That’s in line with other national surveys showing an extremely close race.
The poll surveyed 1,089 adults.
Obama Campaign Guru David Axelrod was asked for his reaction to the fact that the American people were finally beginning to realize that Obama ought to be held responsible for his mess. A picture is worth a thousand words:
This pretty much means that massive election fraud that Democrats generally depend upon probably won’t be enough and Obama will have to create a crisis and declare martial law so he can suspend the elections and finally put an end to the illusion that America is a constitutional republic.
Note to universe: George Bush has not been president for four years now. Perhaps it’s about time for somebody else to take responsibility for the economy. But Obama will sure never step up to that job.
“Favor the rich” means to give the only people who have the resources to hire you to give you a job. Unless you’re handing out resumes to all the poor people you know, anyway.
Just remember, if Obama is president for life and lives to be 100, he’ll spend the next fifty years blaming George Bush much the way the Soviet Union ultimately blamed seventy years of bad weather for their inability to grow enough food to feed their people.
If you like living in a failing nation and having a leader who blames everybody but himself for his failure to lead, elect Obama. Because more than anyone else on earth, he’s your guy. If you want to get out of this national quicksand we’re in, the for the love of God please give someone else a chance to do what Obama has now thoroughly proven he cannot do.
