    You know what? I think Bush spent his 8 years trying to clean up Clinton's crap.
    Perhaps, but Bush began with a functionally balanced (very, very small deficits) budget and ended with annual budget deficits of more than $1T. The budget problem was pretty much CREATED during the Bush II administration (Is this what Republicans mean by being a "creationist"?). In addition to creating huge annual deficits, he turned over an economy that was in a death spiral.

    Obama's "crime" is not in creating an economic mess. That was pretty much given to him by Bush. His crime is failing to fix it.

    The time necessary to "fix" the economy may be 5 to 10 years,IMO.
    And you think that President Obama, who probably knows zero about economics, can "fix" this in two ??
    The "crime" was the American peoples greed.
    This may take forever to fix.....
    Bush really cannot be "credited" was messing up the economy....It was the Islamic attack and our response....Billions of dollars spent on tracking him down... That money is forever gone...
    Lets just hope that all this is over and that we have learned something.
    The something boils down to "respect".
