Go back six years, when the GOP controlled the White House and Congress. Unemployment was 4.5% and dropping. The DOW was 12,000 and rising (up to 14,000). And the deficit was 165 billion (OK, still too much) and shrinking.

What did Americans do? Allowed the MSM to convince them how lousy every thing was, and replaced the GOP Congress with a Democrat Congress.

Two years later, with unemployment rising, the DOW falling, and the US auto industry heading into bankruptcy, the people allowed the MSM to blame Bush. Yeah, right, like it was Bush's fault people were buying Toyotas and Hondas instead of Fords and Chevys. People could look in their own driveways and see what the problem was, but they allowed the MSM to convince them to blame Bush and hire an inexperienced Senaror to fix things instead. How has that worked out?

Yikes, “Senaror” should be “Senator”.

The liberal media create a mythos then use it as a fulcrum to assault any Republican. If anyone compares the economic statistics between 2003( a little over a year past 911) and 2006, our economy was doing just fine. Then the Democrats took over Congress, and it’s been all downhill since then. So this rubbish about a “Bush Recession” is a complete media creation. Romney’s campaign needs to say this, over and over.

I don't know why you credit the GOP during a housing bubble. We have had nothing but a mirage economy for decades. Better off four years ago? How about twenty, thirty? The middle class and others is being finished off before our eyes.

I only credit Gov't for destroying prosperity and wealth. The GOP and Dems have so far exceeding my wildest expectations.

We have overspent, over-promised our way to 'growth'. Obama is but a symptom of our decline.
