Why Bush’s Last Two Years Were So Bad

I pray that those of us who vote will read this through and check it out, and then believe it to the point that they see the horror of what is happening in this nation and vote against the evil that has been allowed to fester and grow.  Years of apathy, past and present, will be the downfall of this nation………..this tells the story, why President George W. Bush was so bad at the end of his term.

Don’t just skim over this, read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out.

The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd 2007 the day the 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.

January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress, and already by that time:

The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77,
The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%,
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%, AND
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?
BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

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? OBAMA.
And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie?  OBAMA and the Democrat Congress.

 

So when someone tries to blame Bush…

REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007…. THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!

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 government 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.

For those listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is “Bush’s Fault”, think about this:
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.
