It is all Bush's fault!!! I don't think so, but if the economy is an oak tree, Bush was the acorn that started the growth. The wild behavior and being out of control among both parties goes back to the Clinton impeachment, the point where we decided to divide the nation & pick which side our resentment for the other side would be on. Our silliness to listen to the experts who said we could have our cake (two wars) and eat it too (tax cuts in 2 wars). What were we thinking, or were we?
