Voters Finally Blame Obama for Economy

Two-thirds of likely voters say the weak economy is Washington’s fault, and more blame President Obama than anybody else, according to a new poll for The Hill.

It found that 66 percent believe paltry job growth and slow economic recovery is the result of bad policy. Thirty-four percent say Obama is the most to blame, followed by 23 percent who say Congress is the culprit. Twenty percent point the finger at Wall Street, and 18 percent cite former President George W. Bush.

The results highlight the reelection challenge Obama faces amid dissatisfaction with his first-term performance on the economy.

    Ever wonder why if there’s a black fly in the room it will find its way to obama’s face?
    He’s FULL of IT, and people are finally realizing that.

    Of course as more people wake up in this election cycle the more of what he has not done will become apparent to more people. Remember 1980 this is proof that history repeats itself look for us to keep the House retake the Senate and the Presidency. Now for the clean up of biblical proportions

    • Savedru says:

      Amen, and it’s time to send all the Socialist democraps and RHINO Republicans packing come November. Time to clean house in the Senate from the foul stench of Socialism.

  3. richard says:

    LOL loos like people are finally waking up to the fact that obama has done NOTHING while in office for almosgt four years. He sure has turned out to be nothing hasn;t he, oh wait he has done something, the Senate (run by his party) has not passed a budget the entire time he has been in office and he has added over one trillion dollars to the national debt each yeah he has been in office.

    • Savedru says:

      Richard, I beg to differ with you. when you say he has done NOTHING,oh contra my fellow American, he has done alot. He has been very busy instructing all his zars to slowley dismantle all our freedoms through all the federal agencies,ie Justice Dept,EPA,Homeland Security,and on and on we go. and let’s not forget the two Lesbian supreme court jsutices. Yes he’s been a very busy Marxist,Socialist President.

      • An American says:

        Why don’t the Democrats see what they are helping Obama do to our world? I’m so sick of watching what is happening and can’t Stop it.

        • Savedru says:

          Richard, the democrats are Socialist now,so your wasting your breath. I live in California,so I’m screwed here. My vote wont make a difference because of the Socialist democrats that run Cali. Califronia is now a welfare state so those votes have been bought and paid for by the Dems.

  4. sean murry says:

    looks like more people are waking up to see what this SOB has done to the economy.

  5. All very encouraging…yet the fly in the ointment still remains: Election fraud in November.

    We’re naive if we don’t take that risk seriously. People like Soros are working overtime to thwart a loss for the left. We must sensitize election officials and our own base to the problem…

    Keep the faith…

      This is why we need PHOTO ID LETS KEEP CALLING WASHINGTON TO TELL THESE PARASITES THAT WORK FOR US ,WE THE PEOPLE WANT PHOTO ID OR YOU CAN’T VOTE!!!!!!!!THE SENATE NUMBER IS 1-202-224-3121 THE PRESIDENTS NUMBER IS1-202-456-1111, CALL EVERY DAY TELL THEM THIS IS WHAT WE THE PEOPLE WHO PAY YOU TO WORK FOR US WANT AND WE WANT IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE CALL WE HAVE TO SAVE OUR AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Good thought. The left keeps shouting that voter ID is racist. How they arrive at that bit of logic defies reason, but they keep shouting it. Then they simper that it’s just another way to prevent minorities from voting.

        Absolute nonsense, isn’t it?

  6. colleenf says:

    Gee, I guess he is going to use the excuse that he just didn’t explain things well enough or often enough to us peons that it is still Bush’s fault!
    Lying thug in chief.

    • An American says:

      Obama thinks we are so stupid that he can say anything he wants and we will believe him, AGH!!! NEVER!! he his the worst excuse for a president that I have ever seen. We must vote him out. With all the slimy corrupt people running our nation we can not afford to have the head slime in office for another 4 years. I believe Obamas goal is to destroy America, we must STOP him.

  7. amiee says:

    Wow! People maybe hanging up their “Obama” phones and discovering that their food stamps are not going as far as they did 4 years ago!
    I am shocked!

  8. Remington 870 says:

    All voters better understand Obama is a Communist….pure and complete. Ever talk to a black person about Obama? All I have talked to love him. He is their savior. They believe the white man needs to share more with them. Time to take the white man down. Pretty scarey. I have given up even discussing Obama with black folk. This is a skin based election. If mass murderer Idi Amin were running for president, most black would vote for him. Call me racist…I don’t give a crap.

    • Warren says:

      I too have tried to speak to them and all they do is get upset and call me racist. They cannot see him for what he is. Only that he’s Black and that means he can do no wrong. Talk about a RUDE awakening… That’s what they’ll have if he get’s back in. It’s darn near pathetic.

      • Savedru says:

        Just sheep heading off a cliff and don’t even know it. Sad,Sad,Sad.

      • An American says:

        I believe the black are unfortunately the true racist because they are brain washed from birth and they preach racism and practice it. They don’t see that white communities do except them and respect them. The black have so many of their own that make money off them and they want to keep them uneducated and keep them on welfare, they want to keep control of them. Personally I’m ashamed to claim him as our President. It doesn’t matter what color he is, its what he is as a man, he has failed again. Can’t trust him ever!!

    • Savedru says:

      My fellow patriot,your not a racist at all. it’s just fact that the Black race only see’s a fellow Black man in the White House,pure and simple. Remember the OJ Trial? how did that work our for America. The Black Race has been kept down by the Democraps with all their welfare programs for decades. The Reason is simple,to get their votes. That’s how the democraps work their magic on the minority masses.

  9. thats not new,we the people by me know this ineligible communist treasonous trader,was a trader from his first day in office,i little birdy told us{cia guy}shhh,told us about this musmutt when he was in chicago as a street hustler,we the people time to talk/communicate/focus/plan/gather/refine plan to the nra,aarp,amac,tea party,john birch society,all militias,we the people who are the real government,look how far this treasonous do nothing,lawless,useless,treasonous government,has allowed this country to fall,god bless ron paul,sheriff joe and cold case posse,brian terry and family,chuck norris,frank serpico,and all american veterans/citizens.one nation under god

  10. wayne74467 says:

    Poll: 18% blame George W Bush, my god where do they find these people?

  11. dad666 says:

    Congress bears some of te heat thanks to brilliant leaders like Reid and Pelosi. The Dumocraps have displayed their true desires for the World to see and their days are numbered.

    • Savedru says:

      we conservatives and independents outnumber the base. If we all and I mean all get out and VOTE in November,then the nightmare will finally be over and we can start to heal our land and rebuild our once Great Nation.

      • An American says:

        We must stand together and get everyone to vote for Romney in order to STOP the fraud votes. I believe Obama got in with the help of Fraud Votes, and he will again if we don’t have enough true honest votes to beat the fraud votes. Anyone voting Obama is aiding him the destruction of America.

        • Chuck says:

          You are correct. Rally everyone you know to VOTE for Romney. Anotherr four years of Obama and the America we know will be gone forever.

  12. mimi says:
