  • You're going to get mixed answers here. The Libs will blame Bush, because that's all they know how to do. The Reps will tell you that it's the libs on Capitol Hill that helped create it (Housing Market Crash).

  • Thats because the answer IS mixed. There were MANY MANY contributing factors. And no it won't get fixed over night, but this spending is a bad bad bad idea! And it's NOT helping. The dems like to blame ONLY bush. The repubs blame ALL the idiots in Washington and know that Obama is only making things worse with his spending, taxing, and creating new programs we DON'T have the money for!

  • Actually, I think the American people are to blame, most dont know who their senators or reps are, or the issues facing America today.
    Our country has gone wild and most don't know or care on both sides!
    I might not agree with many cafemoms on some issues, but I respect the fact that know and care what is happening. Everyone is entitled to freedom of speech and their opinion.

  • If you are "older" then you have seen this before. The jobless numbers match what they were 26 years ago...

  • nana--you're certainly not alone. half the country hasn't ever acknowledged this country's problems, and still refuse to see what is right in front of them now. which is why the house of cards is imploding.
