Who are These Other 10 Percent?

CNN reports that a new poll finds that 90 percent of Americans believe the economy “stinks” (Their word, not mine.)

Not the sort of finding you want to hear after the Vice President openly admits “The Economy is Ours, not Bush’s.”  The one saving grace — or default setting really — of the Obama Administration has been to blame its predecessor for the economy.

No one really believes they’ll be able to keep getting away with that come 2012.

New York (CNNMoney) – 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.

The persistent pessimism indicates that Americans are feeling a level of hardship commiserate with the official statistics. Unemployment stands at 9.1%, economic growth is barely above stall speed, and the housing market remains tied in knots.

For a White House now fully engaged in re-election efforts, there is one shred of good news: More than two and half years after inauguration day, Americans are still more likely to blame former President George W. Bush for current economic conditions.

Asked which administration is to blame, 52% of Americans blame the previous Republican regime, while only 32% point a finger at Obama and Democrats.

    Now it’s on to the fall back position the left always employs. Class warfare, calling any who disagree racist, etc. This cycle, there will likely be a new twist. Union violence. As States and businesses have to tighten belts, the Unions will be required to give up more, which of course, they don’t want to. That is understandable. Still, what the longshoreman out west did may become more prevalent. This won’t help their cause, but they’ve been ramped up to it by their leaders.
