Bush added 4.9 trillion dollars to the debt.

    Democrats took control of the Congress, Obama has created 4 million jobs in 6 years, has stagnant economic growth, 7 trillion added to the debt, and record numbers of discouraged, workers and part time employees.

    You see, actual facts just show how partisan you really are.
    Well I'm trying to learn how our system works.

    So let's see if I understand this correctly...

    When a republican is president and the economy is good, then that is the result of the president. But when a republican is president and the economy is bad, that is the result of congress.

    OK, I see how it works now. You learned in your Jr. High civics class that you should make up the rules to fit your partisanship.

    No, you don't get it and that is probably because you don't want to get it and have your own biases. The reality is the numbers, the reality is basic civics that Bush had a Democrat Congress his last two years and Congress makes the laws and controls the purse strings. Let me see if I have it right, you blame Bush for the recession and Bush had a Democrat Congress and now you blame Republicans because they control the House?

    You didn't learn a thing in Junior high civics and today don't seem to have the ability to even do basic research of the non partisan sites like bea.gov, bls.gov, Treasury data. I am waiting for you to give us the economic results of Obama's that are better than Bush's?

    You do realize that even though Bush had a Dem congress, he STILL had to put his STAMP on the bills right? Sorry, but Bush is just as much to blame for that as congress because Bush had the power of the VETO and COULD have used it. You're giving him a free pass because he is a Republican president.

    What bills? What bills did the Democrat Congress submit that would have helped prevent the recession? Democrats were more focused on regaining the WH than doing their job.

    Getting where? Why did it take 7 years to get back to the employment numbers of December 2007? Why did it take 7 trillion added to the debt to get us there? What is it going to take for people like you to realize Obama has made a fool out of you?

    What does that have to do with the fact that all the bills passed had to be signed by Bush during that timeframe and COULD HAVE BEEN VETOED by him? Please tell us oh partisan one.

    No, we are not "getting there", that's the problem. Things are getting worse, not better.
