I know exactly what you mean.<quoted text>
Not talking about Clinton. Stop trying to change the subject.
I'm speaking specifically about the seven years that Bush administration has a complete Republican controlling stranglehold on the entire federal government and did NOTHING to fix America's financial problems and only worsened the situation through reckless spending, abject lack of oversight, zero accountability, and more graft, greed and corruption than anyone could think humanly possible.
From 2000 to 2007, Republicans controlled the White House, Senate, House of Representatives, Pentagon, Supreme Court and Justice Department.
What's your excuse for Republicans' abject failure to balance the budget, fix Social Security, fix Medicare/Medicaid, expose and reduce the gluttony of the medical insurance industry, reign in federal spending, eliminate contract fraud, create and enforce tougher/higher fuel efficiency requirements, reduce dependency on foreign oil, reduce job outsourcing, or enforce border security?
All of these factors have led directly to the current economic recession/depression of 2009, and the Republicans had ABSOLUTELY NO OPPOSITION for SEVEN CONSECUTIVE YEARS and accomplished NONE of the above.
And its getting worse. When does Obama take over?
