Anyone care to speculate what George Bush would have done for the economy if he somehow would have stayed in office?

He would say something like hey, make lemonade. If you lost your job fix up your house, that way when you are foreclosed on atleast the bank will make more money when they sell it. I call it patriotic he hehe he.

Cut Taxes.

And start a war - an easy one this time, so the economy will boom in the glow of "we-kicked-your-ass-ed-ness".

Unfortunately most of america knows that was "not" his specialty...If I were to throw a dart at his topic I would have to say the Iraq war was his primary goal in his tenure as President...that's good for it's purpose but then again our economy suffered due to not being placed on his short list of priorities...

Well let me think, McCain his party buddy said he thought the economy was "basically sound".

I think Bush would have stuck his head in the sand like an ostrich.

Denial, denial, denial, lie, lie, lie.

Nothing. DEC 2007 America went into Recession; Bush said America was still growing. If Bush was still in office I'm sure we would be in a great depression, while Bush says America is only in a mild recession.
