Nope....Bush's War was way out of our league. It's like I said a while back...if a person could bankrupt an oil company 2-3, I may add then what made America think that he couldn't do it to a country. Good ol USA just won't ever be the same...

Now, I am not sure here, but let me know, is this the same war that a bipartisan congress kept funding over the last 5 years? I guess every other politician in D.C. shares no blame for the state of the economy. In fact, I clearly remember dubya claiming this as "his war".
You watch too much television.

Not with congress passing a raise for themselves. 4,000 more a year. Nice huh? Lets see very middle class working citizen in is asked to take pay cuts, and in ohio they're is expected to pay more taxes on gas, license plates, and their license. Come on open you eyes. The middle class is going to be poor and gone, and the rich will continue to live on easy street. The best way to find a better life is get out of the Youngstown area, heck make it out of Ohio all together!

It's so easy to blame one man for problems fueled by a democratic Congress. The grass isn't always greener on the other side. Get ready to see your taxes skyrocket.

peachy.......the "democratic congress" you mentioned hasn't had but a few days to do anything. NO congress can do something like that in a week or so. It's still the GOP's mess. It'll take YEARS to fix what they screwed up.

BTW, how about $485,000 for dishes in the white house? That's the "Bushy legacy".

As a republican I must disagree that the economy crisis was not by a deomcratic congress since we republicans were in charge & caused all the mess. On going wars never ever maintained a strong economy. Bush & Cheney's attitude & acts of stupidity in foreign & domestic situations are the results of our situation. MY act of stupidity was voting for them the 2nd time, when I knew they wanted wars.

The Democrate run Congress has had the lowest percent of approval it history. Go figure that one out before you blame everything on Bush. I don't care for Bush either, but you still can't blame him for the mess the congress is in. Look at the appointee's Hussien is getting OMG!!!! Socialists, tax evaders, inexperienced just to name a few. Things will only get worse. It's a sad time for America.

Some economists say our economy will bottom out in the spring of 2009 and begin a very slow recovery in the second half. The recovery will take 2 additonal years and bring us to the year 2012, just in time for the next presidential election. I wonder who will take responsibility for the recovery during the election??
