    I blame Bush for everything he is responsible for:

    1. the failure to prevent 9-11.
    2. the stupid 2003 tax-cuts.
    3. The invasion of Iraq & Afghanistan.
    4. allowing Big Oil to author our environmental policy.
    5. letting the Housing Bubble-burst the way it did.

    I don't know if anyone would have prevented that given the time line that unfolded previously. Essentially this was a low probability thing, even though I believe law enforcement agencies had heard some rumor of it. It was just something that was never seen before on State soil. Even if we knew about it, less we KNEW about it (implying that we had definitive proof), it would have been ruled low probability. Everything he did after the attack can be critiqued, for he did some dumbass **** in response. Including this decade plus war we find ourselves in now.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Now I want you to tell me how Bush could have stopped this after being president for 8 months?

    How about at the very least, in response to a PDB reporting of suspicious activity of terrorists involving hijackings, he had airport security increased until the threat passed?

    Actually, Democrats in the House and Senate are responsible for the debt. Neither Bush nor Obama created it. Obama's problem is that he failed to even try to lead the House and Senate in the right direction when he had the chance.

    Republicans controlled the House and Senate from 1995 to 2000.
    1996 Debt Increased by 6.71%
    1997 Debt Increased by 3.37%
    1998 Debt Increased by 2.03%
    1999 Debt Increased by 2.88%
    2000 Debt Decreased by 1.97% (a product of the "Contract with America" led by Newt Gingrich in preceding years)

    in 2001 and 2002 the House and Senate were split and the debt grew by an average of 6.37% (9/11) and to a height of a 9.25% increase by 2003 when Republicans (not particularly conservative Republicans) regained a slight majority. Then the increase decreased (politician speak) gradually each year (9.25%, 8.55%, 7.56%, 6.24%) to 6.24% in 2006. The Democrats gained control of both House and Senate in 2007 (elected end of 2006) and in 2008 the increase in debt jumped from 6.32% in 2007 to 15.93% in 2008 another 15.06% in 2009 and another 13.92% in 2010. About a 52% increase in debt in just 3 years - that's quite a record!
    The US is an odd ship. The captain yells out when he sees obtacles , but 535 individual propellers do the steering.
