Let's set the record straight please!
malaise but let's review!
George Bush took office in January 2001, less than 9 months later America was attacked by terrorist from the Middle East. More American's were killed on September 11, 2001 than were killed at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. We could have easily spun into a very serious recession/depression as our stock market was raped by arbitrage moves by the terrorist and other organizations selling short as soon as the market opened after the attack. But President Bush took the control of the Country and he set forward a plan to go after those who attacked us. And it was President Bush's character, strong faith, belief in America and leadership that led America through the worst attack ever.
For the next 50 + months not only did America recover we had unprecedented job growth and economic prosperity!
But for reasons no one now can understand, "We the people" decided to elect Democrats to take control of both the House and the Senate, and Bush and the Republican's lost control of the economy, regulatory affairs, and policy in general.
The day the Democrats took control was January 3rd 2007, not inauguration day 2009 when Presdient Obama took office. The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.
The Democrats have been in control of the economy and governmental operations since 2007 (that's nearly six full years). They had total control of the government including the White House for 2009 and 2010. In 2010 "We the People" did win back the House and began the slowing, but could not stop, the destruction to our economy started in 2007 by the Democrats.
