Bush's fault...

From Steve.  Steve and I served in Germany together.

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

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

At the time:

The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77

The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%

The Unemployment rate was 4.6%

George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH

Remember the day...

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

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?


Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!

Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.

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 Democrat Congress

So when someone tries to blame Bush.


Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.

Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 &2011.

In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.

In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.

There is no way this will be widely publicized,unless each of us sends it on!


Sounds pretty good.  I freely admit that I didn't "fact check" it.  Feel free to do so, if you'd like.  Personally, I like the sound of it and it seems perfectly plausible.  Based on my (mind like a steel trap) memory alone, I am confident that it is more true than false.

Another topic:
I had a friend ask me at work today what would happen if on, say November 2nd or so, Creepy Uncle Joe "decided" that his health might be a problem and decided to pull his name from the ballot?  And what if he was immediately replaced on the ballot by Hillary?

He asked "could they do that"?

I don't know if they could do that or not, but it is an intriguing scenario.  I wouldn't put anything past these asshats.  What would "we the people" do?  How would we vote?  (I know how I would vote.  I don't like Hillary any more than I like obama.  Perhaps even less)  But, how would "the people" vote?

What do you think?
Stay safe.
