However, don't get me wrong. Bettie is accustomed to the Yeah's and lily's here constant sniping.
She does not need anyone acting as her spokesperson and in particular me. Don't know if she would appreciate it.
Sniping? Son, she sets herself up for the fall.

No assistance needed. Just a dose of reality.

Well, that's just a ridiculous comparison.
Clinton had the dot.com bubble that eventually burst just in time for his exit and a Republican congress who stabilized the budget even though Clinton was smart enough to go along with them.
Bush not only had 9/11 temporarily disrupting job growth but, by the end of his term, had the housing market collapse also which would obviously affect the overall job growth percentage number.
He isn't to blame for either crises. So those numbers of comparison have no comparison to other presidents who didn't have a 9/11 or a housing market collapse on their watch.
The design of these tax cuts was ill-conceived, resulting in significantly less economic stimulus than could have been accomplished for the same budgetary cost. In part because the tax cuts were not as effective as alternative measures would have been, job creation during this recovery has been notably worse than in any other recovery since the end of World War II.

No lying here. You just refuse to hear the truth. Or at least refuse to consider that liberals might just be wrong about something - or a lot of things.

Bush On Jobs: The Worst Track Record On Record
http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2009/01/09/bus...
(That fact from the Wall Street Journal.)
O'bama now has the worst track record. Your article is from 2009--O'bama wishes he could have GW Bush's low unemployment rates. But O'bama is too stupid--and not only that-he doesn't care.

Bush pushed Part D because the Democrats would have otherwise.

Tenzing would call that propaganda. All other liberals will simply pretend you didn't post it. It became invisible as soon as Bush was credited for a good economy before the democrats ruined it with the bad mortgage loan crisis.

<quoted text>bettie has a warped sense of reality.
In a recent blog post, Paul Krugman compares the response of the Bush administration to the 2001 recession to that of the Obama administration to the Great Recession, and finds that president Bush oversaw a response that was quite superior. Referring to current fiscal policy as "amazing" in how bad it is, he argues that W's policies, including to some extent the war in Afghanistan and the liberation of Iraq, helped the U.S. economy recover from the outfall of the tech bubble burst and the 9/11 attacks.

The graph shows how different Obama's response to the Great Recession has been: in spite of persistent high unemployment, government spending, even in nominal terms, slowed relatively soon after the recession and where Krugman claims that Bush helped the recovery through his national-security policies, Obama hindered it.
