It is useful in any discussion on the economy and jobs to have the facts. A picture is worth a thousand words. Therefore, in place of words, I offer these three charts as visual proof of who is responsible for the economic troubles we are experiencing now, and how President Obama's 2 1/2 years in office has improved the mess Bush left us.
A majority of economists understand that government cutting spending during a downturn makes that downturn worse. We need another stimulus; the first one was not big enough. In the meantime, read these charts and understand for the gazillionth time that YES, it absolutely is BUSH'S FAULT, and Mr. Obama, with the help of a cooperative Congress, could do much more to improve the disaster Bush left to the American people.
The reality is that improving the economy would give Mr. Obama a second term, and we all know that the GOP has clearly stated that denying President Obama a second term is more important to them than improving the economic life of America and putting people back to work. It is difficult to understand how anyone could continue to support a political party with such a small, spiteful goal: The continued suffering of the American people for political gain.
