    Because cutting spending on Medicare is cutting spending.

    Obama can't help it if the repubs in Cogress keep voting to spend more and more money on other programs

The economic conditions that Bush inherited were FAR from the rose garden scenario that you are peddling. We were in the middle of a recession when he took office... and 9-11 came shortly after. Can we at least be honest about that?
    bush* did not take office during a recession, so I guess it's your post that isn't being honest about that

    Early 2000s recession - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Because of the October 27, 1997 mini-crash in the wake of the Asian crisis, the predictions about a future burst increased, causing an uncertain climate on economy during the first months of 1998, while the Federal Reserve raised interest rates six times between June 1999 and May 2000 in an effort to cool the economy to a soft landing. The actual burst of the stock market bubble occurred in the form of the NASDAQ crash in March 2000. Growth in gross domestic product slowed considerably in the third quarter of 2000 to the lowest rate since a contraction in the first quarter of 1991
    Ummm... yes he did. So I guess your post about my post being dishonest was dishonest?

    Umm, "slow growth" is not a recession. Your latest post is even more dishonest than your previous one

    From your own link
    The NBER's Business Cycle Dating Committee has determined that a peak in business activity occurred in the U.S. economy in March 2001. A peak marks the end of an expansion and the beginning of a recession. The determination of a peak date in March is thus a determination that the expansion that began in March 1991 ended in March 2001 and a recession began


    Your own link says the recession began in March 2001, two months *AFTER* bush* took office.

    The republicans have voted to spend more money on every program, so i dont know what you are talking about. And neither do you, apparently.

    Nit pick much?

    Bush inherited a recession. This is a factually correct statement unless you would like to argue that by some means he did something in his first month in office that caused it.

    You said that when bush* entered office, it was in the middle of a recession. Now that your claim has been proven to be dishonest, you're trying to change the subject to distract from your dishonest claim

    What you're trying to do is to mince words in an attempt to deflect from the fact that the economy Bush inherited was far less than ideal. Far less than your progressive talking points memo allows you to admit. So what we have here is a case of you splitting hairs over specific dates as if by doing so it would somehow change the fact that Bush inherited a recession which was quickly magnified by 9-11.

    Bush entered office just after the dot com bubble burst. The economy was in a tailspin and a recession was in process. The only thing proven to be dishonest here is your attempt at revisionist history... wait a second... you really are attempting to revise history. I'll give you credit for that.

    No, you're just trying to run away from your own words as fast as you can. The facts is, the economy hit it's peak in March 2001. Too bad your Decider was so incompetent he blew the economy up.
