The economic crisis began in the Clinton era. It didn't reach fruitition until the end of the Bush era.
Don't blame Bush if the economy collapsed at the end of his watch when Clinton created the first cracks in the foundation.

Michael Hastings OBVIOUSLY Murdered by Bomb on Gas Tank

"For all 3 of those normal reasons, which account for virtually all car fires in modern cars, the fire would have started in the engine compartment, progressed slowly, and scorched the hell out of the paint before ever reaching the gas tank. That clean paint is the be all tell all, Michael Hastings was murdered, and the rest is detail."

UPDATE: Accident scenes switched. They swapped cars and locations to hide explosive damage, PROOF IS BELOW:

For example, most of the decline was in the last three months of 2008, caused by fear of Obama.

The Bush tax cuts cost us trillions in revenue and led to the worst downturn since the Depression. Only an idiot would deny those FACTS. Failure defines the Bush administration.
"The failure of Republicans to deliver on their promise that tax cuts would be mostly self-financing is a large factor in the deterioration in our long-run fiscal outlook, and it is putting considerable pressure on programs such as Social Security. In fact, the Bush tax cuts can be thought of as a loan from the Social Security Trust Fund that was supposed to be paid back with the revenues from higher economic growth, a loan that is presently in default."
"The payoffs from tax cuts that were promised during the Bush years have not been realized, and the failed promises about growth and revenue have damaged the health, education, and retirement programs the working class depends upon in our increasingly globalized economy."

The issue was the economy returning after 9/11.

<quoted text>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.
Obama sure is glad that he doesn't have the same huge spending deficits as Reagan and Bush43-- in both of those republican administrations the national debt quadrupled and multiplied upwards by 8-times what the budget deficit had been. "Lenders talk about a &#65533;debtor&#65533; s death spiral.&#65533; It occurs when borrowers get so far in over their heads they begin borrowing money just to cover the interest payments on past borrowings. The borrowers have to do this to keep the lending flowing but they can no longer plausibly pay down the principal. As new debt compounds on old, bankruptcy becomes imminent. Further lending is foolhardy. Foreclosure is only a matter of time.

The U.S. is starting to look like it is entering just such a death spiral. It is foretold not simply by the large and growing deficits, nor by the fact that their carrying costs will rise quickly as interest rates rise. Rather, it is the fact that these trends are becoming irreversible, a structural part of the U.S. economy.

When the ultimate collapse will occur, whether it comes with a bang or a whimper, how it will be triggered, and how severe it will be are as yet unknown. But as Herbert Stein, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under Richard Nixon was fond of saying, &#65533;Things that can&#65533;t go on forever, don&#65533;t.&#65533;

The first signs of impending trouble are the exploding budget deficits themselves. They began, of course, under the parlous economic stewardship of Ronald Reagan. Reagan cut the marginal tax rate on the wealthiest of Americans from 70% to 38%. He promised it would spur an orgy of investment and rocket the economy to new levels of production and prosperity. Instead, his &#65533;supply side economics&#65533; did the exact opposite. It produced the deepest recession since the Great Depression. "

His statement was that "Bush got the economy up and running again".
That's what you have to prove right to refute his argument.
No, USA called it false. So, it his to prove as he didn't provide a reason.

Besides GDP and stock market charts aren't that hard to find or read. Some independent searching by USA would be a good thing.

I do have to say I did see someone totally misread a chart.

Nah, the equities markets already had their correction last week. Today was just panic over China. DJIA's only down 54 points right now and headed up because today provided a buying opportunity for those who got out in anticipation of the correction.
Boy, it did crash at the end -139.84

What happened?

As I stated there is no sure place for the money to go.
