The Economy is a Train Wreck for Obama, But It’s a Tragedy for the Country
So we are at 8.2% unemployment, and in reality we are at 10.9 if the same number of people work. But that number 8.2%, that’s a number we were told we would never reach if we passed the stimulus. We would never get above 8%, never, if we passed the stimulus. If we passed stimulus, if we passed Porkulus, never get above 8%.
How good is George W. Bush looking? You know, this guy is so much smarter than people know. Yesterday the portrait unveiling at the White House, Obama can’t help himself, he has to get in his digs about how horrible it was, the mess that he inherited from Bush. And not only was it bad, it was far worse than they even knew. An unstated attempt to blame Bush for withholding data on him during the transition period. What does Bush do yesterday? What he’s done every day since he left office. He held his fire, kept his powder dry, cracked a joke. He said, “Mr. President, when you’re wandering the halls here trying to figure out what to do in tough situations, just ask, ‘What would George do?'”
I don’t think that there is an informed person in this country who wouldn’t take the Bush economy over what we’ve got here. It’s a no-brainer. The budget deficit when Bush left office was $167 billion. I mean it’s absurd to believe, and they’re still trying to blame Bush. “766,000 More Women Unemployed Today Than When Obama Took Office.” That’s Terry Jeffrey at Human Events, Cybercast News Service. “766,000 More Women Unemployed Today Than When Obama Took Office.” The number is from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
