Actually, Bush did a great job with the economy -- especially with pulling us out of the damage of late 2001. Things went well until the mortgage crisis started things tumbling recently. But even that could have been prevented if Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had been regulated like the Repubs wanted. But Dems like Barney Frank buried their heads in the sand and refused to heed warnings, and look what we got.
As for California, it was in pretty sad fiscal shape and having rolling brownouts under Gray Davis. Arnold turned that around.
Yeah, you're doing a HECKUVA job Bushie, just wonderful. Remember the fundamentals of our economy haven't been stronger!
