Some I would agree with you on and some I would not agree with you.<quoted text>
Put federal marshalls on flights. Tenet's August 6, 2001 PDB mentioned FBI sources which described preparations for hijackings. The source was likely the agents who were tipped off about the Arab students learning to fly, but not land.
Libby did no jail time and Bush immediately commuted the criminal part of his sentence. Some reporter did a short stint. I think that's about it. Please don't tell me this was adequate punishment.
Bush inherited a healthy budget and not only wrecked it, but the economy as well. No, Obama didn't borrow any plays out your playbook. He has had to react to a bad situation.
Bush and Cheney pushed those accusations to the hilt, but no such violations were revealed once Iraq was occupied.
Oh, come on. Republicans became big spenders starting with Reagan.
The crash was brought about by a real estate bubble and credit default swaps. The real estate bubbble was fueled by bad lending policies of the banks, which were voluntary, not forced.
The Republican Party controlled Congress and the White House during this period and did nothing to address these issues.
History suggests otherwise. FDR took us out of the Great Depression. There was a second dip in unemployment from 1938 to 1941 caused by a cutback in government spending. But this eased by late 1941 and unemployment dropped down to 10%. WW II took care of the rest.
The administration of John Kennedy saw prosperous times.
Contrary to GOP beliefs, it was Paul Volcker who created the recession during the second half of Carter's tenure. In an effort to knock down inflation, Volcker raised the prime rate to something around 20%. It eventually reduced inflation, but its immediate impact was that corporations decided not to borrow and cut back their work forces. You know the rest.
There was an economic boom during the Clinton years, although he did leave office with a moderate recession.
As far as Reagan goes, much of the boom he achieved came from military spending and large annual deficits. It was not sustainable.
But I like the fact you made your case....instead of the silly
everything was all Bush's fault.
Its has been more then four years now...and its a old tune.
Besides....you libs don't seem to understand that few conservatives
Bush did leave office with something like a 35% approval rating.
Kinda tells us that Conservatives were not to happy with Bush
just like most other Americans.
Keep in mind that Bush was pretty just as much as a motivating
factor for the Tea Party as Obama was.
