    You have to be kidding me. This is such liberal jargon from MSNBC. For six and a half years of Bush's term unemployment was at 4.5%. This is considered full employment, meaning employers could not find people to fill their jobs. As for housing, Barney Frank and other Democrat politicians intentionally denied efforts to reform Fannie and Freddie Mac. In fact Bush's Treasury Sec. testified to Congress, twice, saying that Fannie and Freddie needed reform or we would have a housing bubble collaspe. Frank and Maxine Waters, Democrats who controlled the House, said NO. It is becoming so tiresome listening to Obama acolytes who are devoid of real facts, continue to repeat talking points from the liberal media. I suggest that you visit this web site to really become informed about who Obama really is and what he is trying to do. Certainly, Americans have awaken and have sent a clear message that Obama and his policies are not wanted. Get off of the Bush bashing. Recent polls show that Obama favorability rating is only 1 point ahead of Bush in terms of who Americans think did a better job. That's not a good performance for your messiah.
