It would appear the the neo-con members of the mostly wealthy GOP (and their Wall Street friends) are counting on it. Such blatantly dishonest propaganda they are floating is glaring proof positive that they don’t have anything else.

Last week’s Washington Post-ABC survey revealed a staggering 73% have little or no confidence in Republicans’ ability to make the right decisions for the country’s future. And by a 42% to 34% margin, the public still trusts Democrats to do a better job handling the economy.

As far as presidents go, a recent Time poll showed Americans not only prefer President Obama over former President Bush by a twenty-point margin, but blame Bush for the economic disaster 61% to 27%. So before writing off Obama as an unpopular president, consider the context of his term.
