According to the GAO, the recession began in December, 2007 marked by three straight quarters of negative growth.<quoted text>
From emam or somebody:
"I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy."
The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.
The economy didn't take a shit until a year and a half after Democrats took over Congress and their socialist policies were in place.
And Bush was forced to deal with the effects of 9/11, remember?
Which means for your argument to hold up, the Democrats would have had to have exerted a strong negative effect by early March, 2007. So please show us what legislation they passed which did this.
The Senate in January, 2007 consisted of 49 Democrats, 49 Republicans and 2 Independents. The Democrat majority was based on those two Independents lining up with them. So it was a weak majority, indeed.
In summary, you have us believe the Republicans lacked the ability to filibuster any bill to death in the Senate they didn't like.
Or that Bush could not have vetoed any bill he didn't like, given that Democrats lacked the 67 Senate votes necessary to override him.
With that, your case is dead and buried.
