It does not matter one whit that 1999 - 2009 was America's lost decade, economically speaking. There will always be people who will hold onto the fantasy that the Bush era tax cuts created some form of economic gains that were dashed only by the election of Obama, who is at fault for the recession (and will never get any credit for stopping the meltdown). Liberals are always to blame. If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have thrown our Dow 30,000 away on entitlement spending for welfare queens.
Maybe if the liberals had spent 1999 - 2009 actually helping (instead of hating) America, Christmas and enhanced interrogation, the economy would not have tanked and we would have found those weapons of mass destruction. But no, all they did was complain, and dream up an iconic messiah without a birth certificate.
And that will be what history tells future generations, because, as Oyster writes:
Predictably, the Dems will cower in the corner and wait for the other side to craft a startlingly absurd economic explanation for the miserable Bush decade, and watch in admiration as they repeat it in coordinated fashion with straight faces. Dems love playing prevent defense on such things, with some idiotic forlorn hope that the press will call out the GOP for being crazed, unhistorical phonies.
Stupid liberal media.
