The blogger on the link below makes the premise that it is the Congress that determines the state of the economy more than the President. Congress submits the legislation that determines policies, and the President’s only option is to sign or not.
Check him out, he makes a good case based on factual observations of the DOW . Democrats do not come out looking good, even during the Clinton years.
I just want Democrats to stop being so smug about how much it pains them to have to save us in this way from the Bush years.
