    Are we not counting the policy's implemented by the bush administration before the midterm election in 2006?

    Good thing we have minimum wage laws then or we'd all still be getting 85 an hour. You can't fill your car up for $7.25 or $9 either.

    So what you are saying is that the Democrats took control of the Congress in January 2007, had total control of the legislative process and purse strings and could do nothing about policies that you believe led to the recession that began in December 2007 and policies that continues to be in effect today four years after Bush left office? Do liberals ever take responsibility for anything?

    I'm sure better off now than I was before he took office. The economy was plunging into the abyss, now it's turned around. Two wars; one is done and the other will be by next year. bin Laden still alive; now he's dead, the auto industry almost gone. Now it leads the world. Unemployment is down to where it was when he took office, manufacturing is coming back and the Dow went over 14,000 It was down at 6500 when he took office. The facts say emphatically YES! Apparently the majority of the people that voted agreed.

    I just wonder if anyone will have the lack of class to shout at him during this speach. Always fun to watch our legislators act like high school students.
    The pres. lays out a vision for the country. The Repubs attack him. They haven't learned anything. But...on the bright side, we all learned that Rubio sweats a lot and needs to reach for water. Rubios Watergate.

    The recession was not caused by act of government, it was a factor in the severity of the crisis, but it was not solely to blame. Wall Street and the big banks ran wild, lending subprime mortgages to people who were trying purchase houses that they could possablly afford.

    The cause of the economic recession is akin to building a skyscraper with a flawed structural integrity. The higher it went up the more stress was put on the structure until it reached a point were it could take no more and the whole thing collapsed on itself.
