    2) "Economy Made Few Gains in Bush Years", declared the Washington Post earlier this week. And while the story grudgingly acknowledged the 52-straight months of job growth, it dismissed any economic gains as the ephemeral product of the housing bubble and wild-spending consumers. Except ... that worker productivity -- the most important long-term indicator of the core health and competitiveness of an economy -- has risen at a really impressive 2.6 annual rate during the Bush years vs. 2.0 percent for Clinton and 1.6 percent for Reagan. (That factoid from the Wall Street Journal.) This is important stuff. It's one big reason why the World Economic Forum says the U.S. has the most competitive economy in the world. The economic rebound after the pro-growth 2003 tax cuts was no mirage.

    As we can see clearly in the numbers, the economy started sliding in '06. Now what happened that could effect the economy, and the purse in Washington at that time? Hmmmm....Let's see.....Oh yeah, demo's took over.

    BTW, Obama's spending on social disasterous programs dwarfs anything spent in Afghanistan, Iraq, or all the other deficits combined since the beginning of this country.....



    It's gotta be better than puppet master Soros running things.



    What should we re name the country should that happen, because it damned sure won't be America anymore.

    WTF??? You're still pedaling that lie EVEV AFTER BEING SHOWN the BLS numbers which proved Bush never had 52 consecutive months of job growth??

    I guess the only results you care about are the ones you make up.

    You must be a glutton for being annoyed then -- no one is forcing you to read anything in blue.

    just when no one thought it possible.

    When Clinton was doing his thing on the famous blue dress, I thought we could do no worse. Wrong.
    When Bush was invading Iraq and running up massive deficits, I thought we could do no worse. Wrong again.
    Now that Obama has run up even more massive deficits, dare we think we can do no worse?
