Sci Fi Fan, why dont you look up Dodd and Frank re: the housing bubble, inaddition to who controlled congress from 06-10.
Obama did not exactly remedy the economic situation, esp. by creating the national healthcare control bill, more bailouts for corporations, and banks, printing money re: QE2, QE3, and a administration thats as crooked as a dogs hind leg.
Obama is the POTUS, he took the oath, he was elected, he is the president, being president is not for p-------s! unemployment 8.2% when is he responsible? when? i guess when he gets booted out in november! no he will still blame Bush!
