Situation turned bad under Bush

People blame President Barack Obama for all the ills that have happened to our country in the past 12 years.

But if we look back 12 years, we see a new president being sworn in as our commander in chief, George W. Bush.

As our new president, Bush had a surplus in the kitty, left to him by former President Bill Clinton.

At that time, we had a robust economy with low unemployment, a stock market at record levels and no wars. By the time Bush left office, we had high unemployment, a wrecked economy, a crashing stock market and two wars with no end in sight.

Has anyone ever asked what the country would be like if Obama would have had the same circumstances handed to him from Bush that Bush received from Clinton in early 2001?

Obama would not be spending his time trying to correct Bush’s huge mistakes that put this country on the skids. It’s time to look at who did what.
