  • I think it's odd that when gas was soaring to over $4 a gallon people were cursing Bush right and left.....but now gas (at least in my area) is under $2 a gallon and I haven't heard one person giving him credit. Hmmm........

  • It's not really Bush's fault, per se, it really goes back further than that.

  • It's not....... its just as much the democrats in Congress's fault as it is Bush's. But the democrats just want to blame Bush.

  • Because every bad plan needs a fall guy and, sadly, because Bush is more prominent than the House or Senate, he takes the fall for everything passed and decided. It would be the same for any President when things go wrong. Just the same that when things go well, the President is praised and no one else recognized.

  • AWWW, no really it is. Ask him why he allowed Wall Street to only hold $1 for every $30 it lended. Bill may have said, we need more credit, but W said - whooo hooo, no need for dollar for dollar backing! :)

  • Well you can't lay ALL the blame at his feet. I mean he's a Pres., not a King. Nor does he have Samantha-like powers where he wiggles his nose and crap happens (although...that would be awesome). There are hundreds of people in power who we could blame, but it's all part of being President. You get the credit for the good stuff, and you take the blame for the bad.

  • Well, I can see where you are all coming from. However, you have to understand one man is not responsible for all. It's like I told ya with the new Presidential election. One man cannot make all decisions, it's much bigger than that.
