The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd 2007, the
day 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 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?
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? BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!
And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA and the Democrat Congress.
So when someone tries to blame Bush.
Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress
since January 2007 is the Democrat Party. 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 govern-
ment 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."

I assume this is a cut&paste. Too much typing for me to comprehend. In all this verbiage there is a very big 4-letter word missing: IRAQ.

I read it. It most assuredly is cut and paste. But it is very interesting and is a compilation of fact that I have not seen presented in such a concise package before.

Thank you Nan-zilla. It's time the President quits blaming others and admits to his involvement in our current abysmal economic situation.
