Democrats are always telling us what masters of the economy they are, so I started doing a mental review of recent history and rediscovered some interesting anomalies.
Reagan inherited a crap economy from Carter - One term in office and the economy was roaring.
Bush 41 inherits a booming economy from Reagan - The economy runs on auto-pilot.
Clinton inherits a robust economy from Bush 41 - The stock market bubbles and bursts, the financial sector comes under attack by the Federal Government (Dodd-Frank Amendment), and the job market slows.
Bush 43 inherits a sluggish economy from Clinton - Six years of uninterrupted economic growth, then 9-11.
Obama inherits depressed economy, financial and stock markets from Bush 43 - Unemployment is through the roof, the Government is in un-repayable foreign debt to the tune of over 20 TRILLION dollars...all in six years.
Now it seems to me that the conclusion is clear...Republicans can fix a bad economy. Democrats excel in destroying GOOD economies. And someone ISN'T telling the truth.
Now, I see that there is a movement afoot for the COS. Now that it is no longer needed, I'm against it. Can I assume that many of you are now FOR it? If so...why?
