Today's May jobs numbers came out and it was not good. I am sure you have seen all of the buzz on the other sites. And I am sure you will here the spin from the scared-straight Dems who are attempting to save the ass of their amazing jug-eared, golf-playing, slow-jammin' clueless preezy.
..and I am sure you will be engaged in conversations with a couple of those die-hard, liberal Obama butt-swooshers at the office -- you know, the bitter clingers of the left who still love this clown despite the train wreck he's made out of this country. These guys will undoubtedly offer white-knuckled apologia for the whole situation using their favorite "inherited" narrative.
Well, here's a concise rebuttal to those clowns as to who really bear the blame for this economy -- and it goes back to before The Ass-Clown was elected. Cut and fold and keep in your wallet for the occasions where debate with these idiots eventuates:
The last month that the Republicans controlled the House, the Senate, and the Presidency was December 2006.
What was the unemployment rate in December 2006?
New Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Senators Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, etc. all inherited a GOOD economy from Republicans on January 4, 2007!!!
I have had enough of Democrats saying that Obama inherited a bad economy from Bush.
Bush and the Republicans ceased to be in the majority party on January 4, 2007.
Obama and the Democrats began majority party control of spending on January 4, 2007.
The true date of the transition in the balance of power is NOT January 20, 2009. It IS January 4, 2007.
By the way, the low point in the Employment-population ratio during the Bush-Republican majority years was 62.0 in September 2003. The 2003 Bush Tax cuts turned the economy around, and the Employment-population ratio increased all the way up until… the Democrats took majority control of the House, Senate, and overall spending process…
It is Democrats who drove the economy into the ditch.
It is Democrats who pushed the CRA and blocked Republican attempts to reform Fannie/Freddie. It is Democrats who are mostly responsible for TARP, and totally responsible for the Porkulus, Cash for Clunkers, etc. yet they blame that ALL on Bush and then claim it as their baseline to claim that they haven’t increased spending much.

ITGuy made this remark and is a commenter over on Hot Air. He would bag on Romney (I think he backed Santorum) and would frustrate the hell out of me. But he is a good troop, always has the facts at hand (see above), and can be counted on to be fair and logical.
In any event, and on the main topic, there's much pain in this economy and it's been going on for a long time. Yet Mr Job Pivot is in Minnesota and Illinois today for fundraisers. Too bad he can't squeeze in a round of golf.
