Those who blame Bush for the economy.?

I’m just curious to know why people attribute the economy (good and bad) to the President and the GOP and no responsibility is placed on the Democrats (who have had a majority for 2 years). Can anyone name a specific piece of legislation that Bush created and passed that impacted our economy or are people just drinking from the cup of partisan kool-aid? PS. I’m not a Bush fan or a Republican but I appreciate honest discourse.

The Dems blocked Bush and Rep from Fanny and Freddie while Barney Frank and his buddies were saying all was good yet things were not. Obama`s tax plans will ruin things more you cannot tax more during the low times like this or they will get worse.

How about Bush's deficit spending... Or the first term Bush and Republican Congress 400 Billion dollar 10 year enlargement of Medicare? In fact, Bush and the Republican Congress gave us the worst deficits in history in his first term.

The main problems with the economy are the Fed's doing but Bush's spending didn't help.

Two years out of 30/40 ain't bad, huh? Actually, a lot of what is happening now is from older legislation that is coming home to roost, i.e. The Gramm Bliley Leach Act that was rammed through a Republican congress in 1999 by Phil Gramm that did away with the safeguards that were put into effect after the Big Depression...
