George W Bush lost 818,000 jobs in ONE MONTH, his last one in office, handing off a negative momentum not seen since the Great Depression, before slinking out of the White House. Along with that stellar record, he left behind TWO mismanaged wars of choice, and a deficit which had nearly been a surplus just eight years before. This economy is 100% Bush's economy. If I were a Republican, I'd want to sweep their most recent President under the rug, too. I'd be saying things like "it's been FOUR YEARS; when are you going to stop blaming Bush", too. I'd make sure he didn't get anywhere near the Convention, too, and I'd make sure that none of his partners in incompetence didn't, either. Totally understandable.

Reagan got handed a mess too, and what he did is fantastic history. Too bad your cheating, lieing college grad of a president can't understand how that worked and do it himself. No, he has to try and prove his theroy, and it ain't working. Has he accepted responsibility for anything in 4 years? Only that of the killing of Bin Ladin, and Bush DID start that. You have a clown that wants to be press. but cannot understand how to be a leader.

Dag, Apparently you're not familiar with the 111th Congress. When they came in, what they managed or mismanaged. That's okay you can find a country that has your Utopian dream. Go on now.

This economy is 99% the fault of Democrats. It was Democrats who brought about the mortgage industry crash which was the cause of all those job losses you're blaming on Bush.

Read "Reckless Endangerment" (if you can(. It was written by two business writers from the NYT, hardly a conservatively biased source. It lays the responsibility for the meltdown at the doorstep of the Democrats where it belongs.

One thing more. It wasn't Bush's fault that GM and Chrysler went under. You can thank the UAW (more Democrats) for that.

If that were true you would have seen Bush front and center at the RNC.

your head is so far up O's tail you cant even see daylight. Let's see O was in congress then. The domocrats controlled congress and Bush had to fight them every step from these bad policies to be implemented then. If you want to get educated. Read every executive order written under this administration. Then come back and talk to us abolout bad policies.

Yep, remember old Barnie Frank pushing through that housing bill?

To give you an idea how bad the jobs report released on Friday is, consider this fact: The employment situation in the country is so bad that economists can’t accurately measure it with the existing tools they use to measure jobs. In other words, we have entered a period in our country not contemplated by economists. They simply don’t have the tools to measure what’s actually occurring in the jobs market.

Modern economists never imagined a scenario in which a country with as much wealth, power and innovation as United States could stretch out a jobs recession as long as...
