@Trevor W. Somers is right, you can't just blame a whole group of people for something that just a few people did, and anyways, the reason you only have one set under the Christmas tree (receiving 10 seems like an over-large number anyways) is that Bush just left a big mess that Obama had to clean up! Your irrationality makes my brain hurt (It's okay to delete my comment if it's too argumentative for the 'pages, I just get annoyed when someone says something like that).

hahaha! omg. this was really cool to begin with. my particular favorites are: the somali pirates, the superbowl, and how you made the recession moc. that was very inventive. Also, is that sarah palin's daughter with a baby??? if so HAHAHAHAHA! however, the climax of this moc was definitely the end - that tiger scene made me laugh out loud, literally. brilliant

Quoting Recon Commander: Commander Reek I blame him and his Democrat cronies for all this mess
To throw the blame at one side would be wrong, because both sides are to blame as well as the people. The last minute bailout to the banks with the Bush administration had no positive effects, (As the bankers gave themselves bonuses) And the bailouts in the Obama administration have yet to take real effect. The people themselves are to blame also. Many people were taking money out of their homes to buy expensive things like cars and boats which decreased the home value, and sent the real estate market into a tailspin. Taking a look back into history, you will notice that at the time of the Great Depression President Hoover issued bank bailouts as an immediate response to the situation, without further analysis of the problem; much in the way the Bush Administration issued their bailout. The people today also struggle to keep credit in check in the same way that the people 70 years ago did.

Quoting Ben The Lego Builder This MOC is briliant! I love all the vigs you used and I learned some new things that happened this year. Did you know they discovered water on the moon this year?
Yep! Maybe i shoulda added that one. Nasa sent a craft that targeted a crater on the moon that wasn't exposed to the sun, I believe, and the craft had two explosive charges. When the craft hit, the charges went off, and a cloud with water dispursed off the moon containing somewhere around 21 gallons of water. If i'm correct. Did you know that?

Quoting Donny Valois Nice mocs, but I knew that Barack Obama would be mentioned. What's so historic about a guy who votes to uphold abortion and treats the terrorists who killed 3,000+ Americans on 9/11 like good friends?
My whole purpose behind this moc was just to summarize the major events that happened in 2009. I'm not saying that I like or dislike the guy; I'm just portraying significant events in the ongoing story of America. Again, there is no political bias here, just a guy with bricks and a summary to show and tell.
