    Edwards blamed the disastrous state of the Ohio economy on President Bushs failed leadership and dangerous ideology. In the last month, Edwards noted that Ohio lost an additional 12,000 jobs bringing the total under the George Bush to 237,000 jobs, more than one in four in the whole country. The manufacturing base in Ohio has been especially hard-hit, with 173,000 jobs lost. The typical family has seen its income fall by more than $1,500.

    They are going to be real hard pressed to defend the Bush record and beat on the Obama record in about a year.

    No, get your talking points straight. The comeback for this one is "Who controlled the Congress for the last 2 years of Bush presidency???"

    You really don't want to start comparing the numbers because this is a losing proposition.

    Bush lost 2 million jobs in his first couple of years because of a recession and 9/11. Obama has lost over 8million in just over a year. When the current White House loses under 500,000 in a month they start doing cartwheels. Losing 200,000 would cause them to lose their minds with ecstasy

    Bush had a $500 billion dollar deficit and had a low of $160 billion. Obama's deficit is currently $1.8 trillion.

    Um, aren't you forgetting something? Like deficit for FY2009, since it was Bush's budget?

    Actually because of Obama's anti-business policies and massive spending it will be very easy.

    More importantly that the economic crisis was allowed to bloom under the Bush admin.

    They did nothing to avert it when it could have been done.

    They instead called anyone who was saying there was a problem in the making a "whiner" or "doom and gloom" patisan.

    Really doesn't matter...because Bush wasn't President. Most of Bush's budget was never implemented by congress anyway. Bush was bitching about all of the stuff Harry Reid forgot to fund. So his budget for FY2009 is a wash.

    It was the pro corporation stance that caused this mess.


    You guys just keep taking the corporate side of all issues and see how many regular guy votes you gets with shoving your hands down that "corporate persons" pants.
