Ha! Ha! People's suffering is funny!
By the way, the answer to that question, Mallard...not as clear cut as you might hope, since most people are not judging whether they are better off the way you and your Fox-viewing cohort do (based exclusively on whether Fox tells you to support the party in the Oval Office).
According to a CNN/ORC International poll...37% of registered voters say compared to four years ago, their financial situation is now better, with 44% saying they're now financially worse off, and nearly one in five saying that their situation is the same.And before Mallard has time to say this just proves his point...
As for who gets the blame for the current state of the economy, fingers are still being pointed at the former president.
"Since President Barack Obama's first year in office, a majority of Americans have said that former President Bush's policies were more responsible for current economic problems than Obama's policies were. That figure is at 57% today, with 35% saying the current president and Democrats are mostly to blame for economic problems," adds [Holland]CNN Polling Director Keating Holland].But, you know, that includes the 47% of Americans for whom, according to Mitt Romney the President's job "is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."
