"And they all have the vote, God help us" looks likely to become a theme of this blog. It seems the right commentary on, for instance, this story from late August:
While Republicans have pushed to cast the sputtering economy as Obama’s fault, Americans place their blame elsewhere. Fifty-one percent say that George W. Bush is most to blame for the down economy, while 31 percent say it’s Obama.

At the same time, 44 percent of Americans say that “a lot” or “most” of the blame should be put on the shoulders of congressional Republicans, while 36 percent say the same of congressional Democrats.
Via Alana Goodman, who notes that a Quinnipiac poll in July found that "Americans blamed Bush [on the economy] over Obama by 54 to 27 percent."

The Earth is doomed.
