    No it is not it is not bull****. Bush got dealt a hand of cards that were fairly pleasant. And he ****ed them up.

    A good leader with total control of Congress would have taken advantage and grown jobs and the economy. Our community organizer failed on both counts showing zero leadership skills.

    That's an increase of 3.3 million underemployed from when Obama was sworn in.

    By November of 2004, when you voted to give Bush 4 more years, the number of underemployed swelled by 3.8 million.

    Yet you voted for him anyway. Why do you feign concern now for the underemployed when you **** on them in 2004?

    Again, pick your poison.
    Obama is adding jobs in the private sector, and jobs are being lost in the public sector. States don't have the bread to pay police, fire and teachers....

    Now I realize how smart you are so it would seem to me that you would learn from what you believe was my mistake. Why would you duplicate what you believe was a mistake of mine by voting for Obama?

    But he started with low unemployment which reached 6.3% in 2003 and then went down as housing starts kicked in. He was good until the end of his second term.

    Obama started with high unemployment and a manufacturing base that had been exported ... hence any stimulus would be less effective.

    If you measure devastation ... at the end of Bushes term it was a result of Clinton's policies ... China PNTR Oct 2000.

    I'll take Bush's economy ... just for the job creation from the housing starts.

    In the end these guys had economies that were not comparable ... anymore then they could be compared to Clinton's.

    I think you are making a huge mistake thinking they will hold him accountable in the election. The public still blames Bush for the economy he handed to Obama.

    Here are numbers again with some color.

    No president ever has "total control of Congress". Now, if the republicans weren't filibustering virtually everything it would be a whole different ball game.

    Which economy benefits more from a stimulus?

    1. 20% manufacturing
    2. 11% manufacturing?
