I agree with those who say that the problem was probably due to the stock but I want to comment on your choice of blade. The Woodworker II is a great blade and it is my favorite for the table saw. It is a combination blade designed to do both rips and crosscuts. However, I think it is slightly better at rips than crosscuts. That makes sense since on the table saw you usually rip more than you crosscut.

On a miter saw you are doing nothing but crosscutting. There I think you are better served by a dedicated crosscut blade such as the Forest Chopmaster with 80 teeth. The woodworker II has 40 teeth.
