As the tragic results of the current administration's economic policies become increasingly indefensible, Mr. Obama has had little choice but to desperately cast blame on his predecessor. "In the last six months of 2008 alone, 3 million Americans lost their jobs," Obama told supporters in a speech in Detroit on Thursday. "They have not come up with a single, solitary idea that is any different from the policies of George W. Bush, the policies that they had in place for eight years before we had a crisis," the President continued. "What they are betting on is amnesia. They are betting that you don't remember that they were in charge all this time."
Of course, the truth is that Democrats controlled both houses of Congress throughout all of 2007 and 2008 with ruinous consequences to our economy.
