“THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!”


  • George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH
  • The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
  • The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
  • The Unemployment rate was 4.6%


It was also the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. The Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES created by these two put our country in a freefall we haven't recovered from. Yep it was Bush's fault if your a dumb ass who drinks liberal piss water.

I miss those days. I was working at a good job hat was expected to last many years. I got laid off in 2008 and struggled for work for two years. Only recently did I get a good job and its only a temp job.

Don't expect the common liberal to have common sense. They're still trying to redefine 'insanity'.

That was my best financial year EVER.
Since then my cash flow and net has decreased by an average of about 40% +. And I am one of the lucky ones in my profession.

This frequently overlooked fact has irritated me for the last 5 years. I wasn't a huge GWB fan, but you can't deny things were better off prior to the Dems taking control in 2007. Yet, all we've heard is how the Republicans screwed everything up since 2001 like the Democrats were just unwilling hostages to the whole political process until Obama came along. The Democratic party has been neck deep involved all along. They have been part of, and signed off on the bulk of the decisions, especially the ones that tanked our economy all along. When will any one from the Democratic party at least acknowledge they had a hand in the economic problems we're in!

Finger pointing is all you will get... Pass the blame and never, EVER accept responsibility. That's how they roll!!! Unless they are caught dead to right... And don't have a good attorney on retainer.... LOL! ;)

Just for you, Bobby 1986,
The day the Democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress. The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995. For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this: January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the House of Representatives. At the time: The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77 The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5% The Unemployment rate was 4.6% George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH Remember the day... January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES! Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES! Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy. And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA and the Democrat Congress did So when someone tries to blame Bush. REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!" Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party. Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases. For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets. And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009. If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.
