Recently, a reader send me the following article via e-mail.
(Please note: There was no actual source for this column listed, and I attempted every way to discover who the author was in order to give credit.. Alas - no luck! Since no copyright was included, nor any blurbs about written permission to re-print, I decided to go ahead anyhow and post it.)
I feel this article is important enough to print, as well as very timely - with the most important election cycle coming up that our nation has ever faced. Elections that could save our country from the socialist goals of the current leadership. Elections that could guide us back to the beliefs, ideals, strengths, and wishes of the Founding Fathers.
Here's the article:
IS EVERYTHING BUSH'S FAULT?
The day the Democrats took over was not January 22, 2009. It was actually January 3, 2007. The day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate - the start of the 110th Congress. The Democratic Party controlled the majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.
For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault," think about this:
January 3, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At that time:
- The GDP for the previous quarter was: 3.5%
- The unemployment rate was 4.6%
- George Bush's economic policies set a record - 52 straight months of job creation!
Remember the day:
- January 3, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate
- The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING and FINANCIAL SERVICES!
Thank Congress for taking us from a 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP, and 4.6% Unemployment to this CRISIS by dumping 5 to 6 TRILLION dollars of toxic
And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?
- Obama and the Democratic Congress
So when someone tries to blame Bush... REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007 - THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER! Bush may have been in the car, but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel they were driving. Set the record straight on Bush (and this is NOT to say that Bush did everything right!).
So as you listen to all the commercials and media from the Democrats who are now distancing themselves from their own voting records and their party (as well as Obama), remember how they didn't listen to you when you said you didn't want all the bailouts; you didn't want the health care bill; you didn't want cap and trade; you didn't want them to
If you want this "mess" to continue, then vote Democrat. If not, then vote for somebody else. They darn sure cannot hurt us much more than those currently in office. It appears, from most of the primaries, that the Tea Party is telling the incumbents that the "jig is up." We want to return to reasonable politics and live our lives as we see fit. Not at the whims of the idiots in Washington, D.C.
