Obama’s blame game

President Barack Obama desperately wants you to believe he inherited a bad jobs situation from former President George Bush. The truth shows in the graph below; Obama inherited the bad economy from the Democratically controlled Congress.

You bet it matters. We’ll be hearing how bad Bush left things until November’s election. Remember this chart and demand the truth.


  1. J. Strupp says:

    This assumes that the causes of the financial crisis magically began in 2007 and that it had something to do with a change in political leadership . I actually didnt think anyone in the world believed that.

  2. Mr. Strupp, why wouldn’t it be logical to assume the policy changes of the new legislature would dictate business hiring? Look at the pretty picture, things didn’t take a dive until about June of 2008. The timing looks absolutely plausible to me. Of course, it could also have been because Obama was turning out to be the Democratic candidate.

    My bottom line: you don’t get to bash Bush unless you also bash the Democratically controlled Congress.
