    way too abstruse

    mom's not so interested in what went wrong as she is concerned about how we're gonna get outta this mess

    beside, mom's already pretty certain about just what went wrong

    she just kinda feels it in her guts

    you know how mom is

    anyway, she runs this country, politically, electorally

    and you egghead economists better start minding her

    cuz her massive worry is turning into one hella pissed off old lady

    if you know what i mean

    fix this economy, president obama

    NOW!

    or get out of the white house

    you're gonna be pullin weeds FOR A MONTH, young man

    No one is saying he was a perfect angel. People are merely bringing up the FACT that you can't blame Bush for the entire 2009 budget. MUCH of it falls squarely on the shoulders of democrats and Barrack Obama.

    A few examples include:
    Senate overrides Bush's water bill veto - CNN.com
    Congress overrides Bush's Medicare veto | Reuters
    House overrides Bush veto of U.S. farm bill | Reuters
    Reuters AlertNet - Congress overrides Bush veto of US farm law--again

    And then of course there's the pork-laden $410 billion omnibus appropriations measure that Bush threatened to veto, that congress sat on, and that Obama signed soon after taking office.

    Of course Bush's major contribution to the 2009 budget deficit was the $700 billion financial bailout bill, much of which has already been repaid or will be repaid in the future. We can't say the same about Obama's "stimulus."

    Why blame Bush for anything?


    9-11 - blame it on Clinton

    Iraq - blame it on John Kerry

    Katrina - blame it on Nagin & Blanco

    Plamegate - blame it on Olbermann

    Attorneygate - blame it on Maddow


    Doubling the national debt - blame it on Pelosi


    The GOP is good at really only 2 things:


    Pointing Fingers

    Selling Fear

    Do you know that Obama was a U.S. Senator and that Congress was run by the Democrats for the past 3 years? What affect does Congress have on the economy and when did we go into recession?

    Do you know who Barney Frank and Chris Dodd are? Find out what affect they had on the financial crisis.

    Please get back to me after you have done some basic research on how our govt. runs, who spends the money, and the affect the President has on the economy. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Oh please.....I think it is you who needs take a couple of educational courses.

    you DO know don't you that Bush had a Republican congress for most of his term. Even the Democratic congress basically gave him everything he wanted.

    Please....you can try to distance Bush from the mess that he created. The bottom line, it was his disastarous policies that led to the bubble the collapse of the US economy.

    When will you Republicans understand that "Trickle Down Economics" just doesn't work?

    It didn't work under Reagan...it didn't work under Bush. Why do Republicans keep trying the same failed policies and hoping for different results? ...and then a Democrat has to come in and once again clean up the mess that the GOP leaves behind.
