From 4.5% to 7.9% Unemployment.
That's Bush's record.

Obama's record far better. 7.9% to 8.1%.

Study Finds Fox News Viewers Least Informed Of All Viewers
Another study has concluded that people who only watch Fox News are less informed than all other news consumers.

Researchers at Farleigh Dickinson University updated a study they had conducted in late 2011. That study only sampled respondents from New Jersey, where the university is located. This time, the researchers conducted a nationwide poll.

The poll asked questions about international news (Iran, Egypt, Syria and Greece were included) and domestic affairs (Republican primaries, Congress, unemployment and the Keystone XL pipeline.)

The pollsters found that people were usually able to answer 1.8 out of 4 questions on foreign news, and 1.6 of 5 questions on domestic news, and that people who don't watch any news were able to get 1.22 of the questions on domestic policy right.

As the study explained, though, people who watched only Fox News fared worse:

The largest effect is that of Fox News: all else being equal, someone who watched only Fox News would be expected to answer just 1.04 domestic questions correctly -- a figure which is significantly worse than if they had reported watching no media at all. On the other hand, if they listened only to NPR, they would be expected to answer 1.51 questions correctly; viewers of Sunday morning talk shows fare similarly well. And people watching only The Daily Show with Jon Stewart could answer about 1.42 questions correctly.
Other networks also did badly in some sections; MSNBC viewers and Fox News viewers both fared worse in answering international questions than people who watched no news.

People who only listened to NPR or watched Sunday morning talk shows or "The Daily Show" did the best in the study.

But, unfortunately. They are way higher than four years ago.

I am sorry Mr Spiderman. I voted for Obama the first time around but cannot again. The economy is in shambles and all I hear from the President is its someones else's fault. It sound like what I hear from the kids I teach and I find it distasteful from our president.

He seems to forget that Obama was President a years ago.

You are correct about the lack of accountability of the Obama administration. If anything happens good now, its because of Obama, if anything happens bad, its because of Bush.
Obama has used this ploy too many times and the average American is turned off by it.
Personally I think if he would of acted like a man instead of an adolescent he would have been a more effective leader.

Atlanta gas price at $3.36. The silence is deafening. Report last week says homes sales up by 3.4%, while home value increased at 10%. Ohio unemployment rate is 7.4%.

Obama wins 2012 easily.

Pre- existing condition coverage is a major plus.

GM & Chrysler is a game changer.

Federal responding increased at the lowest rate in 60 years.

Bin Laden is a non factor in terrorism.

Equal pay for women.

Corporations set record profits in 09 & 10.

Federal income taxes are the lowest in 50 years.

Oil drilling is up over Bush years.

Created more jobs last year than Bush did in 8 years.

Obama wins 2012 easily.

He cannot provide them because it isn't true or so twisted it doesn't make any sense.
