THANK YOU BARACK OBAMA … 90% OF AMERICANS THINK THE ECONOMY STINKS.
Not only do we have 9.1% unemployment, record federal deficits, and a record number of people on food stamps and in poverty … but 90% of Americans think the economy stinks. This is up 9% since June 2011. Although those polled still blame GWB more than they do Obama, they closer we get to the 2012 elections, the more Obama will feel the brunt of the anger. As it is presently, Obama has an underwater job approval of 42.8/51.5, but what will this look like in 2012 with little to no economic improvement?
Three years after a financial crisis pushed the country deep into recession, an overwhelming number of Americans – 90% – say that economic conditions remain poor.
The number, reported Friday in a new CNN/ORC International Poll, is the highest of Barack Obama’s presidency and a significant increase from the 81% who said conditions were poor in June.
Full poll results can be seen HERE.
Even if Obama wants to blame every one else for the economy, VP Joe Biden says, “we’re in charge of the economy”. Yikes, I guess Joe didn’t get Obama’s talking points.
Even though 50-some percent of the American people think the economy tanked because of the last administration, that’s not relevant,” Biden told a radio station in Florida.
“What’s relevant is, we’re in charge.
“And right now we are the ones in charge,” Biden added, “and it’s gotten better but it hasn’t gotten good enough … I don’t blame them (people) for being mad.”
Coming soon to a GOP 2012 Presidential add near you.
UPDATE I: Remember when DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said, “we own the economy”?
