So what did any intelligent person think would happen? Bush runs into a recession, a dangerous recession after the 9-11 attack, and cut taxes, and the economy grew at a record pace for a record duration. Obama? Did exactly what Roosevelt did...the big socialist expiriment, spent lots of tax payer money on work proects, and the recession lasted a decade. Obama did the same thing only little of the $880,000,000,000 cam be accounted for, and the same thing will happen...a decade of high unemployment, and massive debt.
