Furthermore, Pres Bush's federal budget deficits were 2.7% of GDP over an 8 year period. So far, Pres BO has been close to 10% of GDP, or 3 times bigger! (We want the Bush deficits)
Furthermore, Pres Bush inherited a recession following the collapse of the "dotcom" economy in the spring of 2000. He also inherited a mess in Iraq (Saddam was shooting at US-UK planes enforcing UN resolutions) and a total indifference toward terrorism by the Clinton administration.
Did you ever hear Pres Bush blame 9-11 on the afformentioned indifference toward terrorism? We were attacked over and over during the Clinton years without a proper response. Did you ever hear Pres Bush blame Pres Clinton?
The bottom line is that presidents are elected to fix not whine about problems.
Do you recall any other president still blaming his predecessor in the 4th year of his presidency?
We tell our kids to grow up and stop whining. We teach them to accept responsibility and grow up.
My guess is that the voters will do the same with Pres BO in November.
You will hear the "big electoral spank" on Election Night '12!
