It's called the Wall Street Journal, a publication I subscribe to.

At least Clinton was smart enough to adopt conservative fiscal policies.

Did he have a recession on the verge of a depression to deal with?

Clinton was working with a Republican congress. And to the credit of both sides, they were able to deal.

We have a different situation today, I think.

My point exactly.

GHB was tricked into raising taxes by the Dems then they exoricated him for it, and it caused a recession.

Clinton came to office and even though he had character flaws he listened to Republicans and co opted ideas and we had a great economy- and the stock market did not tank.

Anyone who blames Obama for this is first of all clueless about economic trends, and secondly more than likely a hypocrite.

Most that are blaming Obama for this are the same folks that would defend Bush's economic downturns by saying, "well actually at the end of Clinton's term the economy started to dip so actually Bush inherited this... and don't lie I know which of you used this in here many times. It's true as soon as Clinton became a lame duck president things started to dip, it's a pretty common trend.

So tack that trend onto the already failing economy that Bush truly did give to us and we have what we have today...

Senator O is in so far over his head, he makes GW look like a genius.

How come Barry always has to have 2-3 staffers standing next to him at press conferences?


Can't handle the heat?

Not only do you come off as a jerk, but a very uninformed one at that...

Come on Dave, you told us you were better than that.

Oh there's something missing, alright.

The vast majority of Americans, 84%, think the current economic conditions were inherited and not caused by President Barack Obama, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll to be released today.

You can't possibly be serious. How does President Obama stack up to Rush, since Rush is now the leader of the Republican Party?

Funny how the Rs were still blaming Clinton for Bush's disaster as late as 07, but 40 days into his term it's all Obama's fault.

You can't make this stuff up!!

I think the mess W inherited had something to do with towers falling down.

The economy was already dropping before 9/11 and Reps were blaming Clinton, that's what the poster was talking about... but nice try.
