Again, read and learn.
Wall Street Journal
Democrats like to claim the 1990s were a golden age while the Bush years were disastrous. But Bush inherited a recession, the dot-com bubble had burst in 2000, and the economy was sinking even before the shock of 9/11.
By late 2002, the economy was struggling which is when Bush proposed his second round of tax cuts. The tax rate reductions were immediate and included cuts in capital gains and dividends designed to spur business incentives. AS THE TAX CUTS BECAME LAW IN LATE MAY 2003, THE RECOVERY BEGAN IN EARNEST.
Growth averaged nearly 4% over the next three years, the jobless rate fell from 6.3% in June 2003 to 4.4% in October 2006, and real wages began to grow despite rising food and energy prices. The 2003 tax cut was the high point of Bush economic policy.

Yes, Bush made some mistakes in spending too. But he did more things right than wrong in the wake of 9/11.
He would probably be doing a better job than this president if given one more term.
lol! You do realize your article counters your claim regarding the housing market right? And you do know they blame bushie boy, right?

Nah, I doubt it. I doubt you read beyond what you were looking for.

Besides, you haven't been that smart on such matters.
Yeah

It was also before the dot-com bubble burst and Bush inheriting that recession and, of course, 9/11.
But at least you didn't blame him for the housing market crisis or the Feds putting the money accelerator to the floor.
The tax cuts spurred the economy after 9/11.
He made some spending mistakes but what president hasn't?
It's very possible Bush could have done a much better job turning things around than this president has done given one more term.
And yet, bushie boy ranks right up there!

After all, he unleashed the hounds of credit!
Yeah

He understood his job description to be: Read the teleprompter with as few embarrassing mistakes as possible, stay in campaign mode, keep blaming Bush, look GQ cool at all times and never stop fundraising.
Son, when your own article contradictions your position, I'd say you're over your head.
Yeah

LOL. Yes, just like F.A. They twist the facts to fit their own perception of reality.
And bettie is a teacher!

It sends chills up and down my spine of the brain washing she does.

What's funnier is, Galt encouraged her to take government money and run.

Talk about ironic! Well, more hypocritical actually.
Yeah

Problem is, they are too brainwashed to admit they are wrong.
I just love how F.A. is crediting Obama with Whistle Blower investigations carried out under the Bush administration. She wasn't so accommodating when it came to giving credit to Obama for capturing Bin Laden. Funny how that works.
lol! Sometimes, I just can't post a jab to the back to show how they missed they boat.

I'm too busy laughing.
Yeah

Care to refute the figures?
Hmmmm.... then I wonder why cons are so incensed with the debt? But not cheering the accelerated reduction.

They must be better at adding than subtracting.

If they cave in on amnesty, their base will stay home and they will lose in 2014.
Why vote for a party that ignores their base?
Actually, why can't the t-p form their own party instead of trying to hijack what doesn't belong to them?
Yeah

To the contrary, we will never forget 9-11-01 as long as one single Islamic terrorist continues to breathe.

That is why we so despise our so-called President fighting on the side of this human filth in Syria.
Yeah
