    So, 4.9 unemployment rate at a time when the NASDAQ bubble blew up by nearly 60% and then the financial crash following 9/11 is not some part of his credit? Consider the date of this article, 1/6/2006. That's what nearly 5 years later too? Hmm. Makes you wonder if the OA saw this and figured it was a good time to deflect all his current problems. At least Bush came back with better numbers. He actually wanted to tackle health care costs next and I wished he had. Obama comes out at a time everybody knows we aren't out of this. With Obama, it's screw the polls, screw what the American people care about. Putin saved his butt by giving him another option. Had Putin not secured Syria's weapons (which remains to be seen), he would have done something the American public did not want.

    And over his 8 years, I know Bush never pointed his fingers at Clinton. Yet, Obama has spent his 2 terms doing just that. I'd tell him shut-up and man up. Actually, I wouldn't...got a family to support:) No way I want to bring on his wrath and have me put into a gulag.

    Bush says he inherited recession

    I think that Bush and Obama were both correct that the economic situation they stepped into was inherited from the president before them.
