    Cries the Conservative who voted for Bush after he failed to protect us on 9.11 and after he led us into Iraq over WMD which weren't there. Those were the results you rewarded Bush with by giving him 4 more years ... which he used to completely wreck our economy.

    Sure, just like FDR was elected to fix the problems he inherited. That took time too.

    indeed it did. in fact, it wasn't until we were done with FDR that we fully recovered. In fact, it wasn't until post-WWII when we dramatically slashed government spending that we fully recovered.

    Hoover had an unemployment rate of 24%.

    The Great Depression was over before we entered WWII. GDP for 1941 was 17.1%. The unemployment rate for 1942 was 4.7%.

    Damn Librul media. How dare they spin that declaration of victory into a declaration of victory?

    Really?

    Setting a withdrawal timetable equates to failure??

    Wouldn't that mean then that when Bush, still a governor at the time, demanded President Clinton provide a timetable for withdrawal from Kosovo, he was trying to get us to fail there?
    "I think it’s also important for the president to lay out a timetable as to how long they will be involved and when they will be withdrawn." ~ George Bush, 6.5.1999

    "Victory means exit strategy, and it’s important for the president to explain to us what the exit strategy is." ~ George Bush, 4.9.1999
    When is the execution date for treason?

    Even though Clinton warned Bush about terrorism and Osama Bin Laden, Bush was busy pushing the missile defense system 911.

    7/90 - 3/91 8 months
    7/81 - 11/82 16 months
    Hey, notice something here ... ?

    Check out the presidents when each of those recessions began ...

    12/07 -- Bush (R)
    3/01 -- Bush (R)
    7/90 -- Bush (R)
    7/81 -- Reagan (R)

    So remind me again why you vote for Republicans for president?
