Bush rescued the economy? Link Excerpt: George W. Bush rescued the economy from collapse, according to Karen Hughes. She attacked Obama on NBC Sunday, defending the record of her former Fuhrer boss on the economy. Speaking about Obama's successes, journalist Mark Halperin praised Obama's handling of the economy. "He's done, I think, an extraordinary job running the government under difficult circumstances. He managed the economic crisis, kept the world from going into depression," said Halperin. But Hughes quickly took objection to Halperin's assessment. "I have to disagree with you, Mark, about rescuing the economy," she said. "I think that happened before President Bush left office when they took the action that they did on TARP and the banks have now repaid much of that money but that's what stabilized the economy and prevented the collapse of the financial system." Hughes knew that David Gregory and Meet the Whore was the best place to spew her complete horseshit.
