Next time some liberal starts on the "because of George Bush" mantra, remember this:
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, the start of the 110th Congress. The Democratic 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 Congress: AT THAT TIME:
o The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
o The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5
o The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
o George Bush's Economic policies SET
A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!
Remember this day - January 3rd, 2007:
This is the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee
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!!! THANK YOU DEMOCRATS for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% 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 policies!
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????
And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie??? OBAMA and the Democratic Congress
So when someone tries to blame Bush . . .
REMEMBER - JANUARY 3rd, 2007. THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!"
Bush may have been in the car but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel. They were driving.
Set the record straight on Bush!
