Conservative economist: Blame Bush economic policies
Really interesting piece on The Daily Beast this week about right wingers' misplaced anger toward President Obama regarding the economy.
Author Bruce Bartlett, a conservative economist, scolds GOPers for their insistence that President Obama's policies are at fault for current economic challenges. Barlett argues instead that the Bush administration is to blame for much of the economic downturn facing the country.
This line sums things up:
Conservative protesters should remember that the recession, which led to so many of the policies they oppose, is almost entirely the result of Bush’s policies.
Bartlett's point goes to show no one should be turning a blind eye to the past eight years.
