Fox News Poll Blames Barack Obama for Blaming George W. Bush

Fox News Poll Blames Barack Obama for Blaming George W. Bush

Fox News took a poll, and according to the results, 66 percent of Americans think that President Obama should start taking responsibility and stop blaming the Bush administration for things.

That's more than three times as many as the 21 percent who think it's right to continue to blame the Bush administration for the way things are going today.

Even the wording of that question is fair and balanced, right?

18. Do you think it is right for the Obama administration to continue to blame the Bush administration for the way things are going or is it time for the Obama administration to start taking responsibility?

Other questions included:

15. If General David Petraeus were president, do you think he would be doing a better job, a worse job or about the same kind of job as President Obama?

18 percent of pollees overall answered "better."

Polling was conducted in the evenings by telephone on April 20 and 21, 2010, and comprises a sample of 900 registered voters.

We blame Fox News for only asking these questions to people who answer their phones (and polls from Fox News) at dinnertime, which as we well know is just plain rude, and probably not very democratic (or Democratic).
