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.
