    Yeah, and not all Republicans were happy with Bush, either. Alternatively, you guys are slobbering all over yourselves in your love of all things Obama.

    If Bush controlled it in 2008, Obama controls it now.

    I believe unemployment was at 7.8 but why quibble. The economy was shedding 750,000 jobs a month when Bush finally left office. It is now gaining 250,000 jobs a month. The Obama economy is making a million jobs a month more than Bush left him with

    Gas dropped momentarily to $1.78 and then quickly shot up again. Lest we forget, Bush gave us our first $4.00 a gallon gas

    Bush debt was $11.3 trillion and he was given a budget surplus when he started. Bush doubled his debt. Obamas budget has to compensate for two Bush wars, an unfunded Medicare Part D and a $2 trillion Bush tax cut

    Bush added at most 6 trillion to the debt in 8 YEARS. Obama will add 5 in 4. Explain that away. The left insisted twice under Bush that gas prices WERE his fault, now suddenly the President has no control over gas prices.

    As for jobs lets look at Congress, what was the unemployment rate in 2006 and when did it start to climb?

    When Bush left office the nation was on the verge of a recession/depression. Bush was dumping some big bucks into the economy in the form of a bailout to keep it from a wholesale sink.
    Think of how America would be today if we had gone from Clinton to Obama with no Bush.
    Historians have already rated Bush as the 2nd worst financial president in our history, and 15th worst president overall. Americans should be so grateful this country is not in another Great Depression at this time and each day seems closer to recovering.
