The Blame Bush Bash is Baked…
[TWG Note: The glassy eyed idiots are not allowed to speak to me anymore or to be anywhere near me, and the only thing I say to them is how I loathe them so deeply I can taste it. For those of you who still feel the need to attempt to correct those damned idiots, here’s some information about the old ‘blame Bush” game. I’m not a fan of Bush, but this needs to be pointed out. Facts are stubborn things.]
(Hat tip Richard J. Thanks Richard!)
The NEXT time someone attempts to blame Bush for what the dims have done to this country… think about what their self interest is in defending the most Anti-American POTUS in our history. ……
Don’t just skim over this, read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out…….
The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.
The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.
For those who are still 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?
BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES
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…
REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.… THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!”
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.
(Why is anyone surprised? obama’s ONLY private sector job in life….EVER….. was as ice cream slinger for Baskin Robbins. Look it up. It’s proudly displayed on their corporate website. When he realized slinging cream at the ice cream parlor was too difficult for him, he went back to sucking the lifeblood from the American people. I’m not surprised.)
