He did hurt the country a lot when he kept pushing the economy down intentionally during the election to try to make himself look better, and it certainly hasn't gotten anything but worse since he's been around.

Economy has been going south since late '99, early '00 buddy, that's what happens when idiots pump tons of money into tech companies that weren't making a profit to begin with.

That couldnt be further from the truth. in 99 and 00 the unemployment rate was at a national all time low.

No, it is the truth. The economy started taking a turn for the worst then, it doesn't happen in a matter of days. In the summer of 2000 everyone was predicting a recession, that's usually how it works.

Dow is back at the levels it was before september 11, NASDAQ is higher than it was before september 11, the effects of sept. 11 on the economy are constantly overstated by the media... the problem is mainly poor tax policies

Hey, I just got a tax surplus.

Let's give it all away and then try to find ways to spend it at the same time.

I couldnt have said it better myself. There was a reason that his father was a one termer. Lets hope we get this ******* out after his term is up too. Clinton had to spend the majority of his first term in office repairing the economy. when will they learn

I'm a Democrat. Bush hasn't done jack to hurt the economy. It started going downhill before he got into office. Things can't just keep going up, eventually they go down again. It's no ones fault really. Look at our economy since WWII. Economy goes up, Economy goes down. Repeat.

over? :lol:

and uh, bigger defense isnt such a bad thing. or will it take another 9/11 for you to realize that? (i dont mean more tanks, planes, and such...im referring to intelligence assets that allow us to prevent these things)
