    Of course a housing bubble burst in 2007, a financial crisis pushed the US deep into recession in late 2008, and recessions last awhile. If you compared the first two years of President Reagan with President Carter he would not compare well (and Reagan’s approvals were down at about 38% at this point in his administration). So yeah, in a recession things are worse, but I don’t think one can blame the recession on Obama. One can’t blame it on Bush either, the causes are multi-faceted.

    Scott, that’s fair. Additionally, the post was intended for a much different audience (note the term “red meat” and read some of the comments on the site). I’m trying to avoid the Dennis Miller Monday Night Football effect if you catch my drift. 😉

    BTW, I’m not sure if it was clear on the Big Peace site, but the numbers are averages for all eight years of Bush and include Obama’s record for the most available data.
