And yes, despite as obstructionist as Democrats were they still did what is now considered unthinkable: govern. They reached compromises with the Bush administration. Meanwhile, after Obama got elected Republicans ran entire campaigns on the premise of "no compromise". They havent done their jobs since.
No matter how many straw man arguments are made, its all irrelevant what happened in 2008. We are in this crisis right now. Which side is holding us up at this moment(relatively speaking)? Which side has refused to negotiate? Which side has spent years turning down proposals concerning this problem? Which side has filibustered an absurd amount?
People can easily look this information up. They apparently have because the GOP is correctly being blamed. Again, Republicans did everything humanily possible to screw over Obama(read: screw over the American people). They succeeded. Congrats. Now its time for the party of personal responsibility to actually take some responsibility and work this crap out instead of pointing to 4 years ago.
