    BUSH DID NOT BREAK IT OVER NIGHT

    So why should we expect Obama to fix over night what Bush took 8 years to break?
    The problem is, he is fixing it and the RRWE don’t want to give him credit for fixing it and use it as an excuse to get him out of office. But the American are not stupid as they think and they know that facts show Obama has not failed.
    My son in law just go laid off his job at a printing office and it is not Obama's fault. More people have home printers. He lost is job but makers of home printer hired a few more. Obama don't get credit for that either. Obama don’t get credit for every jobs lost or every job created

    Obama has failed big time....
    Bush didn't break it....the dem congress did. Our country crashed after they took over congress...
    If you think Bush broke it...then Obama has obliterated it! He's the biggest FAILURE ever, and i think worse than Carter. But you go ahead and believe what you want....

    Unbelievable...almost 4 yrs later and it's STILL BUSH'S FAULT! When is your president going to admit he's failed at ANYTHING? Moron....................

    Correct with one addition, bush did not do all the breaking he just followed the same path as Reagan and others. The roots of this started with Reagan. Clinton hepled it along the bad path as well but tried to do some good with such things as PAYGO which the republican congress quickly did away with under Bush.

    Congress deserves 90% of the blame, they make the laws and decide on the spending.
    but to blame this entire mess on Obama is partisanly stupid!

    Ipredicted a decade of downer economics for the USA before this thing started. The experts then said 6 months.

    .

    This disaster wasn't started or caused by Bush. It has been decades in the making and cuts to the very core of our culture - borrow money and spend it on crap. Keep borrowing until you can no longer pay it back, then get bailed out. Consumers and businesses alike, for decades. Narcissistic, uncontrolled consumerism based on nothing. Rampant greed and corruption from Wall Street to Washington DC.

    The chickens have come home to roost, we're far from done with this, and all the finger-pointing in the world is not going to fix it. One good place to start is the mirror. We can choose to continue down the same path, or we can choose to get our shit together financially.

    The political affiliation of the White House occupant is irrelevant. This is far bigger than that.

    When Bush took office we had the wind down of the Y2K scare which resulted in a lot of layoffs. When Bush took office we had the dot com crash. Shortly after Bush took office our financial insitutions took a big hit on 9/11. Did the world come crashing to a halt? No, did the economy stumble a bit, yes. But we recovered and the unemployment rate remained low, UNTIL something very bad happened in 2006 which no president could recover, the democrats took control. Two years later the economy is in the dumpster and we are now in the longest and weakest recovery in the history of the nation, all under democrat control. Yet you still want to blame Bush, quite remarkable. Oh and don't forget the 4 trillion dollars in debt your grandchildren had added to them all to maintain an 8 percent unemployment rate, and of course bail out the big boys.

    Bush didn't put the CRA in place to crash the housing industry, Democraps did. In fact, Democraps fought the Bush Admin when they tried to repeal some of the CRA to prevent what eventually happened.

    Democraps used the "race card" as usual to protect the CRA scam on white America.

    And then there's this;

    http://m.cbsnews.com/storysynopsis.rbml?pageType=politics&catid=57400369&feed_id=3&videofeed=39

    "(Credit: CBS) (CBS News) The National Debt has now increased more during President Obama's three years and two months in office than it did during 8 years of the George W. Bush presidency.

    The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency. It has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took office.

    The latest posting from the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department shows the National Debt now stands at $15.566 trillion. It was $10.626 trillion on President Bush's last day in office, which coincided with President Obama's first day."
