Why can't Republicans Admit That Our Economy Today is a Result of Bush's Failed Economic Policies?

When did the recession start?

What was the national debt before Obama came into office? Since?

Who started the TARP fund and too big to fail?

Are Republicans Delusional?

    Republicans seem to not answer the growing national debt from 2000-2007 (before dems took congress). Also what confuses me republicans seem to think as soon as a president, or other dems took office they were responsible. For instance the bickering by the republicans to obama for the national debt after just 3 months in office. Despite none of his policy's taking place yet. Although the recession is mainly because of the debts held by Americans and big corporations outsourcing jobs. But who believes in these big corporations? Republicans.

    Our government has created debt for quite a long time. Long before even Nixon was around. Don't be fooled by political hog wash from one administration to the other. The Government could balance the debt within 10 years if they wanted. They could also pay back monies taken from SS and Medicare. It is all a farce and they are money grubbing crooks. Think of how they are laughing at the people watching them grovel to see who gets elected by slamming each other. We have 100's of elected officials in government screwing the people. Just hang on to the Constitutional Freedoms as long as you can, because they fade away every day just a little.

    Did the DNC fax over their deranged talking factors to you after the cocktail hour? It feels like they have been ingesting back. That stuff is so off-base that it relatively is pathetic. Obama does not understand sh^t from Shinola approximately economic coverage and could deliver the rustic right into a tailspin worse than Carter did. The policies he and the Democrats are proposing are purely approximately comparable to the FAILED foolishness that led to the double digit inflation and horrendous unemployment of the Carter years. foreclosure? How approximately 22% fees of pastime on abode mortgages? abode construction at an entire standstill. gas traces around the block. you need to basically purchase gas on substitute days counting on your motor vehicle plate type. now and back the pumps ran out till now you acquire there so which you had to attend 2 days. advantageous, huh? That became the direct effect of the providence salary tax - purely like Obama's surprising thought. the fee of the Iraq conflict? it relatively is equivalent to a million% of GDP. The protection funds for the period of the Carter years became 12% of GDP and we nonetheless survived. The protection funds did no longer initiate dropping till Reagan ended the chilly conflict. the full protection funds now could be 3.9% of GDP - below for the period of the Clinton Adminsitration whilst he became trashing the militia so he ought to declare his "peace dividend." McCain has by no skill "vowed to attack Iran" or do any of the different crap which you have imagined. in case you desire communicate subjects, please verify you understand what they're as a replace of inventing them.

    "when did the recession start?"

    The day the democrats took over was not January 22, 2009 it was actually January 3, 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, the start of the 110th Congress. The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

    For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this:

    January 3, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:

    At the time:

    1. The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77

    2. The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5% 3. The Unemployment rate was 4.6% 4. George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!

    Remember the day...

    1. January 3, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.

    2. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

    3. Thank Congress for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% Unemployment to this CRISIS by dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fiasco's! (BTW: Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001, because it was financially risky for the U.S. economy, but no one was listening).

    And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac?

    OBAMA!

    And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie???

    OBAMA and the Democratic Congress.

    REMEMBER JANUARY 3, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!"

    Bush may have been in the car, but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel!

    Where did you study economics, young man?

    I have a strong feeling you're regurgitating something your party fed to you about the economy. If you have original thoughts, please share them.
