    Thoughts?

    This tells the story, why Bush was so bad at the end of his 2nd term.
    Donít 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.
    For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that
    everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this: January 3rd, 2007 was
    the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress.
    At the time: The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77. The GDP for the
    previous quarter was 3.5%. The Unemployment rate was 4.6%.
    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. 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.
    There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us
    sends it on!

    Liberals! The real fascists.

    Nothing really new - I've seen all this before and to the best of my ability found every part of it true and factual.

    One point in particular. The party faithful on both sides of the aisle try to blame the economy solely on the prez, check out plots of spending, particularly during debt building, as compared to the party of the pres, the house, the senate and the congress as a group.

    The strongest indicator of bad things happening is that of debt v congressional party representation with the dims always at fault.

    Nice one. This way is a little easier for me to read ...

    Yeah, sorry about that. Like I said, I got it in an email and that's how it cut-n-pasted.
