Lest we forget, this is not Barack Obama's economy, he did not start two wars (although, sadly, he does continue them), he did not push huge tax cuts in times of incredible spending, and he did not take a budget from surplus to deficit. President Obama simply had the unfortunate timing of following the worst president in the history of the U.S.
Remember the Bush administration lost $12 billion, being delivered on pallets, in Iraq. Plus, the Iraq war, overall, will cost us over $3 trillion.
Bush also increased spending faster than any other president in the last 30 years.
The Republican tax cut strategy, again, failed to deliver.
Bush's policies are also responsible for the majority of our deficits.
And, let's not forget the warnings the Bush administration ignored before the 9/11 attack.
