Help Get The Word Out: CLINTON Caused the Recession that Cost America 3M Jobs! (click here)

Blame Clinton!

If you're like me, then you're sick and tired of Kerry and his Democrat cohorts lying out of their pie-holes, blaming President Bush for a recession (and the consequential job losses) that CLINTON caused.  The polls that show Kerry ahead cite the reason as "Bush cost us too many jobs."  So, we can reverse that perception by merely getting the truth out -- and impeaching the Democrats' credibility in the process.

The death-drop of the stock market did not begin with the Bush administration in January 2001, says the congressional Joint Economic Committee (JEC), but in March 2000 under the Clinton administration when it began its all-out attack on the entrepreneurs of the booming U.S. high-tech industry. Indeed, The Economist reports that this poisoning of the economic stream even may have begun in the late 1990s. According to JEC Chairman Rep. Jim Saxton, "The 2000 NASDAQ collapse also corroborates a variety of other data indicating that a sharp economic slowdown was under way by the middle of 2000."

The JEC also found that job losses began under Clinton as well:

Virtually all of the net payroll job loss in recent years is accounted for by the manufacturing sector, and this decline in factory jobs began before the current Administration took office, Vice Chairman Jim Saxton said today. Opponents of the Administration have repeatedly claimed that its policies have caused the decline in manufacturing employment, but fail to explain how this trend began long before any changes in policy took place. The facts show that manufacturing employment reached a cyclical peak in 1998, trending downward thereafter. Consecutive monthly declines in manufacturing employment began in 2000. Moreover, manufacturing employment has been trending downward over a much longer period.

Despite the facts, Kerry and the Democrats continue to lie to the public -- and the media dutifully repeats their lies.  Well, in the age of the internet, this will not stand!

Here is what YOU can do to get the word out:

 1)  Write A letter to the editor

Open the "Write for W" window by clicking HERE.

Write a letter to your editor denouncing Kerry and the Democrats for lying to the American people, blaming Bush for Clinton's sins and failures.  For some more ideas, click here.  Otherwise, here is a sample letter that you can use, edit, etc.


John Kerry and the Democrats have lied to the American people for too long.  It has now been firmly established that the economic recession, and job loss, began while Bill Clinton was still in office -- but despite the facts, Kerry and the Democrats lie and blame Bush.  This is outrageous.

On December 10, 2003, the congressional Joint Economic Committee released its official study showing that the recession began in the third quarter of 2000.  Bill Clinton was still in office.

On January of 2004, the congressional Joint Economic Committee released it official study showing that the job loss that Democrats would like to pin on Bush began in July of 2000.  Bill Clinton was still in office.

The fact is, the recession and job loss began on Bill Clinton's watch.  President Bush inherited an economy that Bill Clinton destroyed.  It is grossly disingenuous -- a flat-out lie -- for Kerry and the Democrats to blame Bush.


Make sure to put your ZIP CODE in the box at the top; then go ahead and SEND your letter!

2)  Contact the RNC  NRSC and Talk Radio and demand that they get the word out.

Send the following (or your own letter) to oreilly@foxnews.com


Dear Bill,

John Kerry and the Democrats have lied to the American people for too long.  It has now been firmly established that the economic recession, and job loss, began while Bill Clinton was still in office -- but despite the facts, Kerry and the Democrats lie and blame Bush.  This is outrageous.

On December 10, 2003, the congressional Joint Economic Committee released its official study showing that the recession began in the third quarter of 2000.  Bill Clinton was still in office.

On January of 2004, the congressional Joint Economic Committee released it official study showing that the job loss that Democrats would like to pin on Bush began in July of 2000.  Bill Clinton was still in office.

The fact is, the recession and job loss began on Bill Clinton's watch.  President Bush inherited an economy that Bill Clinton destroyed.  It is grossly disingenuous -- a flat-out lie -- for Kerry and the Democrats to blame Bush.

Please go over the heads of the pinheads in the media and get the truth out to the people!

Thank you!

5)  Email ALL your friends this page and tell them to write, call, fax, etc.  This is too important an issue to remain silent on any longer.

but try and tell that to anti-Pubbies and you get nowhere.

Oh, you are so right on that. The dems/libs in my life seem only able to quote CNN news bites and I am starting to look at them (and these are my friends!) like they are those bobble head toys with their heads nodding/bobbing meaninglessly in agreement with the lib spin machine. All I hear is that it is the fault of GWB and I am ready to go postal on them. (help!)

About two weeks ago a liberal I once worked with was on the phone saying that Bush needs to go because of the job situation. I informed her that the recession started on Clinton's watch. She hung up on me. I kept saying "Hello? Hello?"

Geat info. Since most of my family are Lib Democrats I have to be prepared to answer the election year propaganda I will be hearing.

I already got two Bush-bashing emails from a sister that were total crap, and easily refuted with a little research.
The Dem smear machine is running full-tilt. We need to arm ourselves with the truth to counter them.

Clinton? Or the Fed? The recession traces back to the huge gyrations in the money supply as the FED prepared for disaster when Y2K hit.

Now it's "outsourcing jobs". A few years ago it was H1-B visas. And before that it was "factories moving overseas" and NAFTA and GATT.

Let's face facts...these jobs that are being "destroyed" aren't worth spit for the price. Do you really want to pay $100 extra for a TV just because your neighbor gets paid $25 an hour in a union with all kinds of benefits but whines anyway? I don't. Chimpanzees can be trained to do most of this work.

And don't get me started on IT workers. My wife and I have had to hire, fire and deal with more than we care to mention. She threatens to fire anyone of them that say, "we can't do that" or "there is no way the program did what you described" because we've spent too many years documenting what their precious programs "can't possibly do" and all the stuff they say they "can't do" because they are just too lazy to rewrite source code.

Blame Clinton!

OK. Klinton signed NAFTA and approved MFN trade status for China.
So how does Dubya differ from the 'Toon on these issues?
Not at all that I can tell.
In fact, with the assistance of a GOP controlled Congress,
I think Dubya's highest priority is to implement globo-Klintonomics on a fast-track.
Nope, not much difference between the two at all on this issue.
So what's your point again?

In 1997 Alan Greenspan warned investors of irrational exuberance and we didn't listen. Early in 1999 Alan Greenspan started raising interest rates to slow the economy down, an attempt to arrest inflation.

At last, a sane voice! I remember reading articles at the time Greenspan increased interest rates that acknowledged the risk the increases would create a recession. I am constantly bewildered by people who point out that the economy was slowing down during the Clinton administration when that was exactly Greenspan's expressed purpose for raising the interest rates.

Further, slowing down the economy was EXPECTED to increase unemployment thereby holding down wages and reducing the possibility of inflation. We got what was intended and then some. The questions now are, have Bush's economic policies mitigated or exacerbated the recession? Are budget deficits of no concern or a growing danger for the economy? Will more tax cuts improve or worsen our economic future?
